Akshay Kumar is on cloud nine in his personal and professional space. His hands are full with films and Khiladi Kumar is doing his bit after he joined hands with government to help army officials and their family.
Apart from being superbly busy, Akshay is elated to be holding a new title after winning national award for Best Actor for his film RUSTOM.
However, several questions were raised about the credibility of the awards and their jury. Many people from the industry and outside the industry felt that the other contenders were more deserving than Akshay.
However, Priyadarshan, the chairperson of National Awards, clarified in a statement, “Akshay was given the best actor on the basis of his performance in two films AIRLIFT and RUSTOM. It was the jury’s decision. One performance was dramatic and one was realistic. But according to the rule book, only one film can be mentioned and RUSTOM was mentioned in the list. But the award recognizes his performance in both the movies.”
Post which Akshay Kumar too shared his thoughts. As per media reports Akshay said, “Itna keh sakta hun mai ki ye award bhi maine imaandari se jita hai. Maine aaj tak cheating nahi ki. Neither have I ever made a call to anyone to win an award nor have given money or done favours for it.”
On the work front, Akshay Kumar is currently shooting for PAD MAN along with Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte.
