Rishi Kapoor bemoans the current state of film awards...
After a few awards were held and telecasted this year, people and journalists started talking how the award shows have lost their way. A few people from the industry also expressed their concern, however Rishi Kapoor is outraged by way popular awards are being doled out to all and sundry. The actor has always made us smile with his hilarious tweets, but what follows will make you ROFL. Rishi Kapoor mentions, “I couldn’t believe it when they recently gave an award to Parineeti Chopra for losing weight. Can someone please give me an award for gaining weight?”
Says Rishi, “I never did believe in popular awards. It’s gotten much worse now. I use award trophies as doorstops in my home. What they have done to film awards is truly tragic. They’ve reduced them to trivia. Shameless. Agar sabko khush karna hai toh phir award ka matlab kya hua?”
Rishi laments the commercialisation of the awards. “It’s all for television now. One or the other of these awards keep playing in some corner of the world. I’ve personally seen our awards functions being televised in Mauritius, New York, Los Angeles and many other parts of the world.”
This year, Rishi Kapoor has received another lifetime achievement award. “It’s my fourth or fifth lifetime achievement award. They pleaded with me to accept it. They think my work is over, so they keep giving me lifetime achievement awards. But my work continues irrespective of whether they give me an award or not.”
