Actors like Amir Khan publicly boycotted every award function. His boycott came to life when his hit film Rangeela didn’t get the best film award and Shah Rukh Khan’s Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge was awarded.

Since then 3 idiots star has made a strong point and stood with it. On this stance Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Kangana Ranaut, Ajay Devgn joined the league and shared a similar thought.

Talking with Hindustan Times, Guru star said, “Koi bhi yeh bole ki main award mein nahi maanta hoon…kyunki aapko award mili nahi hai. Simple si baat hai. Dekhiye, hum sab kalakaar hai, kalakaar ko jab nawaza jaaye, jab unki waah-waahi ho

(If someone says, ‘I don’t believe in awards’, it is because they didn’t get one. It’s simple. We are artists.  if we are praised if we are lauded), that is greater than any award for anybody.”

“We work a lot for appreciation. Yes, this is our business, we have to run our houses, and there is a financial side to it. But you praise an actor and he will be happy. We work for praise, which is the function of the profession.

The award is the ultimate praise, right? Everybody loves awards. If you didn’t get an award, you are not popular enough or your performance wasn’t good enough, that’s the way I look at it.

‘You are good enough’ – Abhishek Bachchan

Agar hum woh conspiracy theory mein ghuse na, phir toh anek hai (If we get into conspiracy theories, there are many). If you are good enough, it will come to you, simple as that,” he added.

Abhishek Bachchan and his family last year tested positive for Covid-19 which made it to the headline for some serious concerns.

“One of the very few regrets that I have is that when I made my debut, I felt that I wasn’t prepared to work with the great JP Dutta. You get to work with such an honored director on your first film, you need to be prepared for that challenge and that honor,” he commented.

“I should have been more prepared for him. I felt I was very underprepared as an actor for JP saab. He is family and I love him.”

However, this was also a lesson for Abhishek as he concluded the interview, “But this was also learning. If I had been so prepared at that time, I would have never learned anything as an actor.

It’s not how you start, but how you end. But your start determines a large part of how you are going to end. Because my start was so shaky from the preparation perspective, it pushed me to pull up my socks.”
