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.

  • In Bollywood, there was a time, when supporting actors did not receive the appreciation they do now. They were looked at as mere pawns to make the lead look good. But times have changed, and talented artists have taken these so called side roles, and evolved them into the backbone of the films. They are now taking the limelight, and sometimes even overshadow the leads.
  • Unlike popular belief, there have been a large number of celebrities who broke the ‘Career is finished after marriage’ taboo and came out shining like true stars only after they got married. Some turned out to be the major superstars of the country, whereas some struggled to leave an impact on the industry, but the one thing that all of them have in common is that they were married before they set their foot on the silver screen.
  • Whenever a celebrity does something whether good or bad, extraordinary or mundane, the news always manages to make its way to the headlines. The frenzy around Indian celebrities who became politicians is therefore justified. And when the theme is women-centric, it’s even better.
  • We all know actors who are also singers seem to be the latest trend in B-town. And you must be aware there are quite a few of them, but we have news for you! First, this trend is not new-found and secondly there are many celebrities who possess this talent. Shocked aren’t you?
  • Having a legal notice attached to one’s image is not good for any individual, but when you are a star, it is even worse, as every star has a brand name to maintain and landing up in trouble due to such unforeseen circumstances is nothing short of a controversy! Here is a list of top Bollywood stars who went to jail.
  • Delhi is not a place….its a feeling! Being the capital city, it has its advantages and disadvantages, but we sure love it more than anything. A lot of our stars are Delhi kids and proud to be a ‘Dilli ka Launda’ or ‘Delhi ki Tota’. Lets check them out!
