We saw some great performances on the silver screen this year and now that 2017 has begun, TV channels are flooded with Award shows. While everybody is content with their victory, one actor is upset about not winning the Filmfare this year. Apparently, Harshvardhan Kapoor who has made his acting debut with the film, ‘Mirzya’ that didn’t do so well at the Box-office, thinks that he deserved the Best Actor Debut award this year instead of Diljit Dosanjh.
In an interview with Indian Express, the actor who also happens to be Anil Kapoor’s son and Sonam Kapoor’s brother, said, “I won every award except Filmfare. You don’t know what kind of goes into it. Some awards have a jury and they decide. Some have a popular vote. So I don’t know how they decided this year. I think debutant awards should be for people who are relatively new to films. I have done less work. Otherwise, it is like saying I have done 100 English films and now I am doing a Hindi film so I am a debutant. So if Leonardo Di Caprio wins an Oscar and then comes to do a Bollywood movie, he is a debutant which is not something I agree with.”
Talking about his sister bagging the Filmfare trophy for the Best Actress (Critic) award, the actor says, “Sonam should have won the main category. Neerja is highest grossing female film of the year and in terms of popularity, it’s massive. I don’t understand how it works.”
Well, we’re not sure if Harshvardhan deserved the trophy or not but we think Diljit Dosanjh gave an outstanding performance in the film, ‘Udta Punjab’ and totally deserved the Filmfare Award this year. Also, we remember Sonam sharing the fact that Papa Anil Kapoor says that Awards are not to be taken seriously, so don’t get disheartened Harshvardhan! Though, we wonder what Diljit has to say to this. (Also Read: Here’s The Complete List Of Winners From The 62nd Jio Filmfare Awards 2017)
