It’s award season in Bollywood right now, and with each passing year, there are newer award functions that pop out of nowhere! While awards are meant to be celebrated and are given to those with credible performances backing them, today, they seem to have become some sort of a joke. Take a look at all the categories at award shows for example. They find a way to felicitate everyone some way or the other, and this really makes you question their credibility.
Turns out, we’re not the only ones doing so. Bollywood’s badshaah, Shah Rukh Khan, also agrees. At the launch of a recent award show, this is what SRK told the media (Pinkvilla).
Television has destroyed the credibility of awards functions to an extent. Honestly, what happens now is an award function is made more television friendly. It is really sad according to me. The organizers initially start with a lot of earnestness and ethic….but somewhere we get entangled in the loop. I won’t take away the fact that everyone tries to be credible, everyone tries to make the best step possible but I think that reasons of commerce and economics sometimes don’t let it go to the extent.
Hmmm… what do you guys think? Agree with SRK?
