Basu took to Twitter to inform Johar about his daughter's choice.
"I asked my daughter - 'Guess who won the best film at the Filmfare?' She said, 'It has to be SOTY'! Cinema is always subjective," Basu posted on Johar's wall.
To that, Johar replied: "True! And please give your daughter the tightest hug! My favourite film of the year won tonight! 'Barfi!'"
