A few days back, the internet was abuzz with hard-hitting claims made by Harshvardhan Kapoor who was pissed about Diljit Dosanjh winning Filmfare’s best debut award over him.
He took to twitter to express his difference in opinion. Here’s a recap of what he said:
Speaking to The Indian Express, Harshvardhan said, “I won every award except Filmfare. You don’t know what kind of goes into it. Some awards have a jury and they decide. Some have a popular vote. So I don’t know how they decided this year.”
“I think debutant awards should be for people who are relatively new to films. I have done less work. Otherwise, it is like saying I have done 100 English films and now I am doing a Hindi film so I am a debutant. So if Leonardo Di Caprio wins an Oscar and then comes to do a Bollywood movie, he is a debutant which is not something I agree with,” he added.
Diljit Dosanjh who kept quiet on the controversy, came out of his cover and spoke on the matter.
According to a report in the Bollywood Life, he said,
I am not hurt. I am not sad. I am thankful to Filmfare Awards for the honour that they gave me. I don’t think I was deserving enough. It’s a big award (and) I think they would have seen something in me and so they gave me the award.
He also added, “For me the love of my fans matter the most and that’s the biggest award for me. I love Harshvardhan Kapoor. I also like his father Anil Kapoor, he is a superstar.”
So much lou!
Full points for that reply, Diljit!
