Hypocrisy In Bollywood Awards Nothing New As Rishi Kapoor Admits to Buying His ‘Best Actor’ Award

Updated on 15 February, 2017 at 8:01 pm By

Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor in an interview about his biography ‘Khullam Khulla’, has made a startling revelation, that he bought his 1973’s “Best Actor Award” for the movie Bobby.

In a live facebook interview about his book, Rishi said that he felt extremely guilty about the episode and said that it was a “mistake” and that he did it because he was a “naive… 20-year-old brash bacha” when he did it.

Though he quickly went on to add that though he bought that award, it doesn’t mean that he bought all his awards after that.

That same year (1973) Amitabh Bachchan was also nominated for his amazing performance in the movie Zanjeer, which over the years went on to become a cult.

Though talks about “buying awards” is nothing new, this is the first time that a known Bollywood actor has openly admitted to doing it.

In the past few days, another news about ‘hypocrisy’ of Bollywood Award function had hit headlines when music composer Amaal Malik had taken to Facebook and slammed various award nominations this year.

While many have slammed Award functions after not being nominated, Amaal’s case was different as he was disappointed for being nominated for a performance that he considered ‘average’ while many deserving ones got ignored.
