No Filmfare for Akshay
Versova - New year is the harbinger of Award season in Bollywood. On Tuesday Filmfare announced its list of nominees for 2017 and the hornet's nest was stirred as Akshay Kumar is missing from the list for reasons best known to it.
While Dangal, Kapoor And Sons, Neerja, Pink, Sultan and Udta Punjab have been nominated in the best film category,
Aamir Khan (Dangal)
Amitabh Bachchan (PINK)
Ranbir Kapoor (Ae Dil Hai Mushkil)
Salman Khan (Sultan)
Shah Rukh Khan (Fan)
Shahid Kapoor (Udta Punjab)
and Sushant Singh Rajput (MS Dhoni: The Untold Story) have been nominated in the Best Actor category at Filmfare Awards.
Last year also Akshay got no mention in Filmfare despite giving a stellar performance in Baby. Hours after the nominations for Filmfare Awards were announced Tuesday, fans of Akshay Kumar took to Twitter to express their outrage over the fact that Akshay’s Rustom did not get even a single nomination.
Slamming Filmfare awards as ‘sold’ awards, people flaunted their wittiest best making “FILMFARE AWARDS ON SALE” trend on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
