Soon after the IIFA awards there has been a lot of talking about award functions and their hypocrisy. Powerful posts from various celebrities went viral and many condemned the fact that fine actors like Akshay Kumar didn’t get an award for their brilliant performances in various films.
Even in the past, we have seen that Akshay has hardly received any award, though he is a deserving actor. But, Akshay Kumar has a different take on this. He says that he doesn’t believe in awards but in rewards. The love he gets from his fans is bigger than any award.
Recently, Akshay made a shocking revelation on ‘Aap Ki Adalat’, when Rajat Sharma, the famous TV anchor asked him a question about awards. He said that at many award functions he had been asked to lower his performance fee and in return he can get an award. Explaining further he said,
It happens sometimes that the people from the award night call you and tell you that if you perform their then they can give half the money and give an award as well. I tell them that they can give me complete payment and keep their awards with them. My fans have never stopped giving me rewards in form of their love and support and that is what matters.
He also shared that his wife, Twinkle Khanna, who is famous for her funny blogs and witty tweets takes digs at him and says that her parents are National Award winners.
I don’t think this is something to be so worried about or I should lower my morale. Sometimes my wife (Twinkle Khanna) taunts that her parents (Rajesh Khanna and Dimple Kapadia) are National award winners but I don’t get awards.
The amazing actor, Akshay Kumar, has definitely left all of us shocked with the revelation he made. Award or no award, Akshay Kumar will always remain the number one Khiladi of Bollywood.
