After a host of filmmakers, including Dibakar Banerjee and Anand Patwardhan, returned their National Awards to express solidarity with FTII students, a few members of the film fraternity termed it as a ‘publicity gimmick’ and an ‘insult’.

Actor Anupam Kher and filmmakers Madhur Bhandarkar are among those who have called the step ‘disrespectful’.

In my view, giving away the National Award is a disrespect to oneself and also to the actors, technicians, audience, jury members, and honourable President.

In a series of Tweets, Anupam Kher slammed the group of directors and branded them “Award Wapsi Gang”.
