Filmfare Awards need no introduction in India. Half of the nation waits with bathed breath for the glittering ceremony to see their favourite stars getting praised for their work. Today, nominations for Filmfare Awards were announced and everybody was shocked as actor Akshay Kumar was not nominated in any category.
Last year, Khiladi Kumar has given many critically acclaimed and successful box office movies like ‘Rustom’ and ‘Airlift’. But, neither the actor nor his movies got a single nomination. This made his fans disappointed and they expressed their anger on social media with the trend “Filmfare Awards On Sale” on blogging site Twitter.
Here are some tweets that can’t be left unnoticed.
For the best film category for Filmfare, ‘Dangal’, ‘Kapoor And Sons’, ‘Neerja’, ‘Pink’, ‘Sultan’ and ‘Udta Punjab’ were nominated. On the other hand, Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Shahid Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput would be fighting for the best actor Filmfare award.
In any of the category none of Akshay’s fims have been nominated.
2016 started with Khiladi Kumar’s ‘Airlift’ that entered the coveted 100 crore club. His another film ‘Rustom’ that was based on the sensational Nanavati case was not only liked by the audience, but it also performed well at the box office.
This is definitely an unpleasant shock to all movie buffs who were expecting that this time Akshay would be awarded.
