Veteran actress Shabana Azmi says her Ek Doctor Ki Maut co-actor Pankaj Kapur deserved a National Award for his performance.
"Pankaj Kapur should have won the National Award for Ek Doctor Ki Maut. I loved working in the film directed by Tapan Sinha," Shabana tweeted.
The 1990-released film, which touched upon the themes of ostracism and bureaucratic negligence, features Pankaj as a doctor who discovers a vaccine for leprosy but others take the credit for it. Shabana plays his wife in the movie.
On a related note, Shabana Azmi was last seen in Bollywood film Neerja for which she won Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award. On the other hand, Pankaj Kapur last appeared in Shaandaar, which tanked at the box office.
