After battling it out with six other nominees, Harman has emerged the winner of this prestigious award
It’s awards season and we at BollywoodLife have our own version with some quirky and interesting categories that you can vote for. And one of the sections we focussed on was Bollywood’s hugely forgotten actors. Interesting, hai na?
So let’s begin the show, shall we? The category is Bollywood’s Forgotten Actors and your nominations are Harman Baweja, Uday Chopra, Aftab Shivdasani, Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan, Ameesha Patel and Sushmita Sen. We would like another forgotten actor, Urmila Matondkar to present this award. Any guesses on who has emerged as the winner? Well, it’s none other than Harman Baweja. Yes, you read that right! The young man who aped Hrithik Roshan with his first release Lover Story 2050 and then crashed through Victory and What’s Your Rashee is now best known for dating Bipasha Basu, remember?
BollywoodLife received a total of 2,244 votes, of which Harman bagged 478 votes, making him the winner of the poll. But the lad who was once known as Priyanka Chopra’s arm candy had neck to neck competition in Fardeen Khan, who received 475 votes. The third position was claimed by Sushmita, who bagged 393 votes. Following closely behind is Zayed, who received 350 votes. And then there is Uday, most recently seen in Dhoom:3 after ages, who bagged 216 votes, thus claiming the fifth position. While sixth and seventh place have been claimed by Ameesha Patel and Aftab Shivdasani, with 200 and 132 votes respectively.
These results don’t come as a surprise to us, because we have seen Uday and Aftab (Grand Masti) on the big screen fairly recently. And Ameesha was seen at the start of 2013 in Race 2. But for all that they did onscreen, they may as well have starred on our list, hai na?
