This year, the event is open for the public, who can watch their favourite stars performing live.

Even as the official nomination list of Jio Filmfare Awards 2018 was out only on January 18, International Business Times, India had conducted a poll a few weeks ago asking readers who they would want to win the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and Best Film awards.

Filmfare's Newton nomination snub is exactly why Indian awards are not taken seriously

For the Best Actor award, most readers voted for Shah Rukh Khan for Raees. More than 30 percent people want the superstar to walk away with the trophy.

For the Best Actress award, readers want Sridevi to win the trophy for her extraordinary performance in Mom. Alia Bhatt and Vidya Balan received the second highest votes of 21.43 percent each, for their movies Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Tumhari Sulu, respectively.

Surprisingly, 100 percent readers voted for Irrfan Khan starrer Hindi Medium for the Best Film award.  Also, Hindi Medium director Saket Chaudhary received maximum votes (30 percent) for the Best Director award.
