The Filmfare awards are set to take place on the 20th of January, and we cannot be more excited to know who is going to take home the statuettes this year around. And since the date is not too far now, we have gotten our hands on the nominations of this year’s award ceremony. We can confirm the presence of the usual suspects like Shah Rukh Khan for Raees, Akshay Kumar for Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, but one surprise exclusion that has been, is of Rajkummar Rao, whose performance in both Trapped and Newton has been critically acclaimed.

The exclusion of Rajkummar Rao from the nominations comes as a shock, but as a repeat of something similar that happened last year. Akshay Kumar was surprisingly omitted from the Best Actor category – and Salman included. Rajkummar does it make it to the nominations for Best Supporting Actor for Bareilly Ki Barfi, but it is of little compensation. Take a look at the nominations below yourself.
