It seems Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is quite following Aamir Khan's footsteps or she has also adopted Aamir's approach towards awards. It was way back in 90s when Aamir couldn't win the Best Actor Award for a particular film (reports have it that he was upset for not winning the Best Actor Award for RANGEELA and instead Shah Rukh Khan walked away with the award for DDLJ that very year), reportedly he decided to boycott awards and award ceremonies. And his stand regarding shunning awards is still intact.
Similarly, Kangana also seems to be bit upset for not winning any award up till now for her highest grossing film this year TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS (or rather losing out to archrival Deepika Padukone who has been shinning at award shows for her film PIKU). Kangana recently even expressed that she does not believe in the concept of film awards and award shows.
She said, 'I feel it's hard to stand against the system. But most of the time, the right thing is not the easiest to do. And I choose the right thing. I feel that awards shows today are just a facade that the event organisers put up. They are not genuine awards functions. I understand that these are commercial functions that are meant to generate TRPs and make money. So why this façade of felicitating artistes when that isn't the case? Genuine artistes, like the best technicians, writers and actors are pushed to the tenth row, and sit with their families, hoping to figure out what's going on with these fancy people, who are in the news for their relationships and item numbers. The main category goes to people who can help generate TRPs. And they might or might not even be deserving candidates. I feel this is not done and we need to change this. Organisers should be honest in saying that this is not an awards function; it's just a function. I won't be part of something so dishonest. I completely condemn them for that reason'.
While Kangana is easily slamming the award shows and awards now, it is strange to see when Bollywood's numero uno actress Kangana Ranaut was bestowed a National Award or any other award for the film QUEEN; she gratifyingly accepted it and even attended the award functions without any opinions.
Well looks like grapes are really sour for these people!
