The award ceremonies in India have never failed to disappoint the fans of Bollywood. They have always been the subject of the debate.
Rajkumar Rao, undoubtedly is one of the most talented actors of India. He might have not won many awards for his back-to-back brilliant performances but he has won millions of hearts and a huge fan base.
Bareilly Ki Barfi, Newton, Shaadi Mei Zaroor Aana, Raabta, and Behan Hogi Teri, Rajkumar Rao gave back-to-back brilliant performances in the year 2017. He has gained a lot of appreciation for every role he has done till now but still, it seems having talent is not considered to be nominated for these award ceremonies in this country.
It’s not the first time Rajkumar Rao is being ignored for his brilliant performances but this time, one of the prestigious and popular awards for Bollywood, Filmfare has not even thought of considering Rajkumar Rao for any of his five movies.
Filmfare have nominated the following actors in the Best Actors category:
1.Akshay Kumar – Toilet: Ek Prem Katha.
2.Ayushmann Khurrana – Shubh Mangal Saavdhan.
3.Hrithik Roshan – Kaabil.
4.Irrfan Khan – Hindi Medium
5.Shah Rukh Khan – Raees
6.Varun Dhawan – Badrinath Ki Dulhania
It is very disappointed to see such a talented actor, Rajkumar Rao not in the list.Not just us, every fan of Rajkumar Rao and Bollywood movies was infuriated by this.
Thus, Twitteratiis flooder the Twitter with their angry tweets. Have a look at some of the tweets:

You guys nominated Hrithik Roshan and Varun Dhawan for best lead actor but not Rajkumar Rao?????? You guys have once again proved that Bollywood awards shows are and scam. Filmfare has lost all its credibility. Shame!

I really appreciate the nomination list of Filmfare for the best actor(male) but why isn't Rajkummar included.I havent seen either of his films but i have heard so much about his performances.This is kinda unfair

FIVE MOVIES IN A YEAR AND RAJKUMMAR RAO IS NOT LEADING ACTOR YET FOR YOU, FILMFARE?

Actually Rajkumar ONLY must be nominated for Best actor chategory and win it for his superlative performance for Trapped. He can Filmfare nominations be so foolish?

That's no logic! In that case why not nominate Golmaal and its actors too in various categories. Nominating Badrinath, Varun And Alia and ignoring Newton, and performances of Rajkumar and Kangana just shows @jiteshpillaai is trying to please @karanjohar

Over the years when Aamir Khan,Ajay Devgan,Nawaz can get ignored them why you are surprised if Rajkumar name is missing?
