That's the question on everyone's mind, including his fans...
A lot has been written about the number of records Salman Khan's Bajrangi Bhaijaan has broken (or is still breaking), but there isn't much literature available on how this film is truly the actor's career defining moment. When was the last time you heard someone say, "Salman should win a National Award for this!", or even used those two words in the same sentence ? Well, things have changed, and the industry including critics has taken notice of Salman's well nuanced performance in BB.
While the National Awards are a matter of prestige, honestly they don't really get the number of eyeballs and attention that a more popular award show like Filmfare or Screen Awards would get. If Salman does win the National Award, he will definitely make the trophy look cool! It isn't a secret that Salman is averse to accepting these awards and making speeches on stage. He is ready to perform and dance at a steep price, but doesn't believe in walking up the stage to receive a trophy.
Ever since the nationwide craze for BB began and is now refusing to subside, industry insiders are speaking in hushed whispers about this probability that Salman might stand a chance of winning the Award. While there are some who believe that intense lobbying goes in fetching a certificate and trophy from the President, it might be the best PR exercise for Salman if his team manages to pull off this coup.
Whether he gets the award or not, there is no denying that come Award season, Salman's Pavan act in Bajrangi Bhaijaan will top every Best Actor category. Lets us know what you think. Does Salman deserve to win the National Award for Bajrangi Bhaijaan ?
