Awards shows in India are no Oscars or Golden Globes, and we all know that. Rather than appreciating and honouring the talent, these shows are mere televised events for TRPs. Shows have been being slammed since past few years for being biased towards a certain actors and their films. Kangana Ranaut and Aamir Khan, are two popular names who have stopped attending award shows. Recently, Amitabh Bachchan, during an interview with Rajeev Masand, agreed that award shows hold no credibility but are mere events for TV. Now, singer Amaal Mallik, popular for Sau Aasmaan, Bol Do Na Zara etc. has penned a powerful post on Facebook, lashing out at award shows.
Many award shows this season have failed to recognise real performances, and rather went for the ones that would appease the masses. Randeep Hooda from Sarabjit has been omitted from many nominations list. Amaal Mallik points this out by writing, “#Sarbjit had #RandeepHooda almost kill himself to bones, and play that character,
and you nominate only #AishwaryaRaiBachchan hahahahaha !” He also hints at the fact that he thinks he did not deserve to be nominated for Baaghi, as he writes, you nominate a #Baaghi that has had average music””.
Now to question your own nomination requires some guts!
“I have not spoken about this, but I need to address the issue !!!!!
A big thank you to the award functions that nominated me and a bigger thank you to the ones That didn’t….
I am nominated for my Albums #KapoorandSons & #Baaghi at the award shows which is an honour because Kapoor and Sons was a beautiful collaborative effort by Me
#Badshah, Tanishk Bagchi & Arko Pravo and the result is for all to see !”he begins his post, and you know something strong is going to be said.
He then says, “But if you nominate a #Baaghi that has had average music, only a #SabTera #ChamCham & till a point it was #AgarTuHota that did decent, it’s unbelievable
because a #BaarBaarDekho & #MSDhoni are bigger albums with 4 successful songs in each.
It is so funny & surprising that you go out of your way and give a star kid all the new comer awards for the best debut, for a performance no one even saw…..
Whereas a #DiljitDosanjh who deserved that award for #UdtaPunjab is nowhere !!
#Sarbjit had #RandeepHooda almost kill himself to bones, and play that character, and you nominate only #AishwaryaRaiBachchan hahahahaha !
Why forget albums like #Kahaani #Neerja by a new composer, #BaarBaarDekho #MSDhoni #Airlift #Jugni and what about a super albums like #Fitoor & #Banjo….
#MSDhoni makes it to the Oscars and it doesn’t even get considered as a best film by the award functions…..
#NeerajPandey not nominated for #MSD, #RajaMenon not nominated for #Airlift, and no #AkshayKumar for Best Actor seriously ?
Why don’t these honest to script yet commercially successful films and albums make it to the nominations list…..
A nomination is an acknowledgment of Good Work , well that’s what I know, but we are disragarding the contribution people have made to the year with their good music
and good films, and great performances.
What happened to Aligarh & Airlift as films, #ManojBajpayee was incredible and so was #AkshayKumar.”
