You Can Take Back My National Award: Akshay Kumar
The controversy around awards is nothing new, he says.
Despite being one of Bollywood’s biggest stars, Akshay Kumar has rarely won awards and when he finally won a National award for Rustom, he was criticised, questioned and trolled widely on social media. Saddened by the hullabaloo surrounding his win, Akshay Kumar spoke about it in a recent interview.
According to a report by The Tribune, he said there was always a controversy when someone won an award in this industry.
I have noticed it in the past 25 years that whenever someone wins, there’s bound to be a discussion on it. So it’s not something new. Someone or the other creates a controversy that this person should not have got it. I have received a National Award after 26 years, take it back if you want to.Akshay Kumar, Actor
