|Founder||J. C. Jain|
After the businessman Ramkrishna Dalmia (1893–1978) of Dalmia Group purchased Bennett, Coleman and Company Limited (BCCL) in 1946, J. C. Jain from Bharat Insurance Company was employed to help him in running the company in 1950. In this period, Jain conceived the idea of Filmfare at the actress Kamini Kaushal's house. The magazine was launched by the industrialist Sahu Shanti Prasad Jain alongside his wife Rama in Bombay on 7 March 1952. Its circulation started to decline in the early 1990s and to handle these problems, Filmfare started special monthly editions for Telugu, Tamil, and Malayalam cinema. In 2004, BCCL (who previously published the magazine) established a subsidiary, Worldwide Media, for publishing its future issues.
