More Bollywood Stars Join Aamir Khan In Boycotting Award Ceremonies
January 20, 2011 : Bollywood star Aamir Khan was hardly seen in any award ceremonies, which are organized to honour the actors, directors, singers and other crew members. Now, many more Bollywood stars are joining to this bandwagon formed by Aamir Khan.National Award winner actor Ajay Devgn has joined Aamir Khan saying that he has also lost interest in such ceremonies, which are cropping up almost every year. He thinks that the aim of the organizers is to only market themselves through these awards and celebrities. The 41-year old actor says that he has stopped attending award functions as these are given to only those actors, who attend the events. He adds that if all actors start attending these events then the awards will have to be divided into three categories. He further says that they need to market and sell their awards.
This year, Ajay was nominated for four awards - Star Screen Awards, Big Star Entertainment Award, Zee Cine Awards and Apsara Awards in the best actor category for Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai. But the actor did not attend any one of them and did not receive any too.
His Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai co-star Emraan Hashmi has also same opinion. According to him, the award ceremonies try to keep everyone happy. He adds that these award ceremonies keep three categories of awards for every actor. He finds this very ridiculous and does not want to be a part of this circus.
Bollywood's leading lady Kareena Kapoor also feels that most of such awards are given to the undeserving candidates. She adds that the actors, who do not attend them, are never declared as the winners.
Suniel Shetty thinks that some of these awards are rigged but not all of them. He maintained a diplomatic stand saying that he does not attend award ceremonies because of his other prior commitments.
