It’s been a day since Filmfare Awards has been receiving flak on social media. A video of Salman Khan talking about the said awards is going viral on social media. All of this started with Kesari’s Teri Mitti lyricist Manoj Muntashir posted a long note about how he is bidding adieu to Filmfare awards.
In the video, we can see Salman Khan saying, “I think the people who don’t have confidence in themselves want awards. I won’t go up and pick Filmfare or any stupid award. National Award mile toh that’s prestigious. That I’ll go and pick.”
He also adds, “Magazine that is running on our strength. Ke aapke interview pe aur stars ke interview pe jo magazine chal rahi hai wohi aapko bulate hai aur bolte hai ki they’re going to give you an award. You come and perform. Then they send it to Pan Parag and Manikchand and we are like idiots.. suit-boot pehen ke baithe hai aur award le rahe hai. It is like tomorrow my driver, spotboy and my make-up man will say that baba aaj hum aapko award dete hai. That’s stupid.”
"People who don't have confidence in themselves they want awards. I'll take a national award that's prestigious but who cares about @filmfare jin logon ka magazine bhi hamare dum par chalta hai".-@BeingSalmanKhan #SalmanKhan #BoycottFilmFare @jiteshpillaai #FilmfareAward2020 pic.twitter.com/7Vi95WOA5A
