Kashmir Files is one of the most loved movies of the year. It is directed by Vivek Agnihotri. The film became a blockbuster hit at the box office. Made with a budget of about 15 crores, this film earned 340 crores only from cinemas. The director of the film is very vocal on different issues. Recently he brutally criticized a colorful star and people linked with Ranveer Singh.
In a recent interview opens up on the controversial tweet. He said, “Ranveer is undoubtedly one of the most talented actors in the industry. But then, one should be awarded for good acting, not when one is not doing anything or any great film. Here, I would like to mention that it is not Ranveer Singh. It is not about him. It is about the way these award events function,”
He further said, “I don’t care who gets the award. My only contention is that these are all for sale awards. Anybody who has the money and power can buy it. Or somebody who is attending gets an award. I don’t understand why it is called an award function, it should just be called a festival or a get-together.”
He further criticizing the award shows said, “They are giving such a bad name to our country, look at the kinds of awards they give, and how they do it. It is shameful. Cinema, which should actually make the brand India stronger, is actually demeaning it. Every single award has 10-12 people, all those friends of each other. They are seen everywhere, as if nobody exists in this industry.”
In his controversial tweet he wrote, “I was shocked to know how the Bollywood awards mafia works. For example, this year one colourful star managed to get all 10+ awards despite both of his films being disasters and rejected by audience. This shows how corrupt and ‘for sale’ is the awards mafia. But Bollywood is silent.” He also replied to his own tweet asking everyone, “Please comment and share your views on Bollywood’s corrupt awards mafia.”
