Bollywood is all about nepotism! There are hardly a bunch of people in the industry who are outsiders and have maintained their stature. Recently, the national film awards were announced and the awards ceremony took place at Delhi. The list of awardees like always is the posh star clan.
No doubt, Neerja was a good film, but was Sonam Kapoor’s performance so extraordinary that she deserved a National Award for the same? Moving onto, Akshay Kumar, whose film ‘Rustam’ could barely create a buzz, also got the National Award this year. But were the two actors really deserving?
Many a times, actors more deserving are left on the pity of the jury, the ones more popular take away the awards, while others are left on the mercy of barely their hard-core talent.
This year, after spending over 3 decades in industry, actor Manoj Joshi is finally given long due credit for his acting.
Manoj won a National Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in the Marathi film, ‘Dashakriya’.
A prolific film and television actor, Manoj Joshi has been acting in television since 1990 and films since 1999. He also starred in some hit films like ‘Sarfarosh’, ‘Hungama’, ‘Garam Masaala’, ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa’. Finally, after spending many years in the industry, the actor got his well deserved credit.
