Last year, an array of women-centric films like Queen, Highway, Mary Kom and Mardaani hit the theatres and took Bollywood by storm. The lead actresses of each of these films got nominated for various categories at every award function. Some of them even managed to grab many trophies this season so far. However, there’s an one ace heroine who didn’t manage to bag any award this year despite delivering a powerful performance in her film. I am referring to Vidya Balan and her daring act in Bobby Jasoos.
In the past, the extraordinary performer had won a lot of acclaim and accolades for her roles in The Dirty Picture and Kahaani. However, though a lot of critical acclaim came her way for her performance in Bobby Jasoos, it looks like this time there are no accolades in store for her. And that has left the film’s producer, Dia Mirza, a tad miffed. She tweeted:
Previously, we’ve seen Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha pouring their heart out through their social networking profiles on how they were disappointed to see that their movie, Lootera, was ignored during the award season.
What do you think – is Dia right? Should Vidya have been nominated this year around?
