Must Read - Filmfare faces trouble by nominating Pakistani artists!

Call it as a bad timing or bad luck, the Filmfare has raised many eyebrows after releasing the nomination list in the various categories. The jury has enlisted the names of Pakistani artists, and it has become quite controversial already. Fawad Khan is nominated in the Best Actor In A Supporting Role category for ‘Kapoor & Sons’, Atil Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan are nominated for the Best Playback Singers for Rustom and Sultan respectively.

A very well-known filmmaker recently commented on this by saying, “It’s a matter of self-respect. We are not welcome in Pakistan. They brutally kill and maim our soldiers. And we behave as if our cinema can’t do without their artistes.” Apparently, he will not receive any awards from Filmfare if they don’t remove the Pakistani artists from the nomination list.

Also, a BJP minister opined about it and said, “Relations with Pakistan have deteriorated to such an extent that there is a move now to declare Pakistan a terror state on an international level. Given the current crisis, I don’t think we can have Pakistani artistes coming here.”

Well, isn’t it funny to invite the Pakistani actor and singers on the award show when they are permanently banned from the country? They don’t seem to be encouraging enough to come back to India as well.

Another fact came up when we saw that the Filmfare didn’t nominate Akshay Kumar for his outstanding performance in Airlift, Taapsee Pannu for Pink, Radhika Apte for Phobia; whereas, Aamir Khan for Dangal, Amitabh Bachchan for Pink, Salman Khan for Sultan and Shahrukh Khan for Fan have been nominated. They are well deserving for their flawless performances in 2016. The people are now calling the Filmfare awards as “Filmfare Awards On Sale”.

This has to be taken care of, Filmfare! What do you think about these incidents? Share your views with us in the comments section below.
