It is a well-known fact that our Mr. perfectionist Aamir khan doesn’t attend award function but we found a rare video of him where he has not only attended the award but also gave a performance dancing in 34th Filmfare(1989).

The Filmfare ceremony is one of the oldest film events in India. The awards were first introduced in 1954, the same year as the National Film Awards. They were initially referred to as the Clare Awards or The Clares after Clare Mendonca, the editor of The Times of India

The ceremony had been sponsored by various private organizations in the past as well as in present provisions. During several years in the 1990s, a live ceremony was broadcast to television audiences but was later discontinued due to unknown reasons. 

Until the mid-1990s, Filmfare Awards were not only preeminent but were also well-recognized popular awards ceremony in India film industry until several clone awards with a similar model of awarding and stage performance pattern started sprouting up in Mumbai. There is no data statistics recorded in reference to T.V viewership for the ceremony, but several press reports have pointed out that along with various other Indian film awards having a similar type of technique and too much of cloning by each other, the ceremony has resulted with less curiosity among audiences and poor viewership since the 2000s. The Filmfare Awards have been often referred to as the Hindi film industry’s equivalent to The Oscars.

This rare video also features numerous Bollywood actors. And yes you can spot young Salman Khan in one of the frames.
