The recently-held Filmfare Awards 2020, organized in Guwahati, Assam was as always high on the entertainment and glamour factors. Among many others, it was Zoya Akhtar’s directorial ‘Gully Boy’ that dominated the awards and made history by winning all the 13 awards for which it was nominated in.
However, this time the award show has disappointed its fans, who are now slamming Filmfare for neglecting better performances and questioning the credibility of the award show. To express their disappointment, netizens are trending the hashtag #BoycottFilmfare on social media.
As per netizens, Kesari’s soul-stirring song ‘Teri Mitti’ should have won the award over Gully Boy’s ‘Apna Time Aaega’. Also, Twitterati feels that the performance of Shahid Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee, Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar, and Kangana Ranaut shouldn’t have been ignored. Twitterati are also not happy with Ananya Panday winning the award for Best Debut Female and feels Pranutan Bahl deserved the award more.
Amidst many Tweets from angry Twitterati, an old video of Salman Khan has resurfaced on twitter where he can be seen slamming the award shows and explains how he is against them. In the viral video, Salman Khan says that this award shows runs because of actors like him. As per him, only National Awards are all that matters as they are prestigious, unlike other awards ‘stupid award’ shows. He said:
“I think the people who don’t have confidence in themselves want awards. I won’t go up and pick Filmfare or any stupid award. National Award mile toh that’s prestigious. That I’ll go and pick.”
“Magazine that is running on our strength. Ke aapke interview pe aur stars ke interview pe jo magazine chal rahi hai wohi aapko bulate hai aur bolte hai ki they’re going to give you an award. You come and perform. Then they send it to Pan Parag and Manikchand and we are like idiots.. suit-boot pehen ke baithe hai aur award le rahe hai. It is like tomorrow my driver, spotboy and my make-up man will say that baba aaj hum aapko award dete hai. That’s stupid.”

However, this isn’t the first time that Salman Khan has called out on award shows. In another event, Salman was seen slamming the shows saying, “I don’t mind being nominated with Aamir and Salman Khan if the money is given to Being Human Trust. Why should we actors, who are friends, compete, and get nothing in return? Aapki TRP badh jati hai, but humein kya milta hai?”
