History of Zee Cine Awards
Zee Cine Awards was introduced to the Indian film industry in 1998. The mega-star-studded event was officially launched in Mumbai, the centre of the Indian film industry. Zee Network Television Limited, a TV network based in Mumbai, is the organisation behind the Zee Cine Awards. The award show has become increasingly glitzy and glamorous throughout the years. The honours are given in recognition of the artists' excellent performances during the previous year.

Lux was the first sponsor, and then Fair View Zee Cine Awards (2002–2003), Pan Parag Zee Cine Awards (2004), Sunfeast Zee Cine Awards (2005), LIC Zee Cine Awards (2006), Aditya Birla Group Zee Cine Awards (2007), and Lux Zee Cine Awards were added to the list of sponsors (2008). With more than a trillion people voting for their favourite actors and films, the event is regarded as the largest viewers' choice award ceremony in the history of the globe.
The top five categories—Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, Best Film, and Best Song of the Year—are decided by a unanimous vote of the audience. The Australian-made trophy is another distinguishing aspect of ZCA. City Gold Corporation and the organisation are working together. Using 24 karat gold, each trophy is manufactured in Australia. ZCA has successfully celebrated ten illustrious years of existence.
In 2004, the ceremony advanced even further by becoming an international event. Dubai hosted the first international ceremony. The show was presented in London the following year, on March 26, 2005. For the years 2006 and 2007, Zee Networks staged the ceremony in Mauritius and Malaysia, respectively. The Zee Cine Awards returned to London on April 26, 2008, this time to the Excel Arena in Docklands.
