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.

  • Oscars, or the Academy Awards 2017 have just ended, and it was one hell of an event. After the Oscars award night, we thought of taking a satirical take on the academy awards by presenting the BAS KAR awards to the worst performances or appearances in Hindi cinema. The winners have been selected keeping in mind the ‘Tumse Naa Ho Payega’ tag line. LOL! Take a look at the winners…
  • Bollywood is known for its thoughtful stories and plots. Over the years, we have seen many women-centric roles, which have impacted our society in a large way. And, we are expecting the same in the year 2017, because it’s going to be a year full of superb movies, especially emphasizing on the womanhood. Here’s presenting to you all those spectacular Bollywood 2017 movies which will celebrate the very essence of a woman.
  • When we recall the hottest buzzword of the century “Feminism”, many people confuse it with “Male Bashing” which is absolutely rubbish. It is more to do with a genuine status quo and not looking low at the men. By default, India is a misogynist country and most of the men here do not respect the womanhood because yes, the country has a patriarchal set up which really needs to be set right. Hence, the influential women have to come-up and voice for all the women out there to drill some sense into the Indian system. Right from Neena Gupta to Kalki Koechlin and Priyanka Chopra, every Bollywood actress has opined for the female emancipation which has to be heard by all.

  • Bollywood is known for its drama and romance; and the directors always very creatively choose their on-screen couples! So, we thought, this Valentine’s Day let’s grace the Director’s chair and pair-up some Bollywood jodis who we’d want to see together in real life! Of course, many actors have worked together in n-number of films and after seeing them on and off the screen, we predicted some love affairs which should happen for real.
  • 2016 was a bundle-full of good movies and we enjoyed them a lot.
