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!'"
The Filmfare Awards night was held here Sunday and "Barfi!" also won the best actor (male) trophy for Ranbir Kapoor.
