In a boomerang video shared by Shahid on the photo-blogging site Instagram, the "Shaandaar" co-stars can be seen happily playing with the award after the ceremony.

As hosts, Karan Johar and Saif Ali Khan attempted to keep the humour alive, but beyond a point, the crowd wasn't very engaged and booed them in between.
