Last month, Abhay Deol referred to as out awards reveals and stated that he and Farhan Akhtar had been demoted to ‘supporting actors’ in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara when the nominations had been introduced, whereas Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif had been nominated as actors in a ‘leading role’. He blamed this on Bollywood’s ‘lobby’ tradition.
“I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as ‘supporting actors’. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as ‘actors in a leading role’. So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes. There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I of course boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it. #familyfareawards,” he wrote in an Instagram publish.
Earlier, in 2017, Kangana Ranaut stated that she as soon as misplaced out on an award as a result of she failed to achieve the ceremony on time. “Early on, I got dressed up for some award, I don’t remember the award but I was supposed to receive the award for supporting cast for Life In A Metro. I got stuck in traffic. I started getting calls asking ‘where are you’. The hysteria and panic that I experienced, I didn’t make it and Soha (Ali Khan) got it for Rang De Basanti,” she stated in an interview.
