The 11th Indian Televisian Academy awards took place over the weekend at the Yash Raj Films Studio in Andheri, a western Mumbai suburb.

While all the television gliteratti turned up in full force, Bollywood was represented by yesteryear heartthrobs Shatrughan Sinha and Dharmendra who joined Amitabh Bachchan, who's hosting one of the most popular shows on TV, Kaun Banega Crorepati.

The trio was felicitated at the awards ceremony and was visibly excited to catch up with each other.
