Akshay Kumar has bagged his first National Award for Rustom and Twitter is going berserk, The 64th National Awards winners list is out and Akshay has bagged an award for his performance in Rustom. Are you shocked as well? Because Twitterati is having a field day, trolling the actor for this win. There has been a huge debate about whether he deserved an award for the film or didn't. While many Akkians (that's what Akshay fans call themselves) were happy for the actor and praised him, others found it incredibly hilarious. The biggest debate right now is whether the actor truly deserved the film and how performers like Aamir Khan in Dangal, Manoj Bajpayee in Aligarh were ignored. That is quite an arguable topic if you think about it. Many on social media have posted crazy tweets starting from how good actors have been ignored to how the 'gormint' is sold to how the new face of government (Akshay).
Some people have even tweeted to Mrs Funnybones (Twinkle Khanna) telling her that her husband has finally bagged the National Award. What's funnier is the fact that quite a few Bollywood award functions snubbed Akshay on their Best Actor nominations list. Perhaps the National Awards sympathised with the actor and decided to give him an award. Oh yes, you folks better get some popcorns with you and read the tweets because they're hilarious!
