When Anu announced, 'And the award goes to... Nishant Bhandari', there was silence instead of applause. Attendees wondered who he was referring to. 'Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2' director Luv Ranjan quickly got up from his seat and went on the stage to say that he was perhaps referring to Nushrat.

The other nominees in the category were Kangana Ranaut, Lara Dutta and Bhumi Pednekar, and Nishant Bhandari sounded closest to Nushrat Bharucha.

"The show organisers also walked up to Anu and pointed out the error. He then announced Nushrat's name. It happened, perhaps, because he was not wearing his reading glasses," says a source.

Nushrat, who was earlier seen in films like 'Love Sex Aur Dhokha' (2010) and 'Akaash Vani' (2011), refrained from commenting on the episode. She just said, "I am happy to win the award."
