The saga related to Sushant Singh Rajput and how his death has led to several people coming out in the open and slamming the fact that the industry only seems to be favoring the 'popular' and 'saleable' actors as opposed to real talent. Probably the best example of that has been the several Award Shows in India. Time and again, even the biggest of celebrities have berated the way Award shows function in India, and now another actor has come out to highlight just that.

Actor Abhay Deol is known to be a person who speaks his heart out and he just did the same pertaining to the times when he starred in Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara.

In a long post, Deol opened up on when the film was released back in 2011, almost all award functions had demoted him and Farhan Akhtar to a supporting role category further slamming the logic behind it. Deol said, "“Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”, released in 2011. Need to chant this title to myself everyday nowadays! Also a great watch when anxious or stressed. I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as “supporting actors”. Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as “actors in a leading role”. So by the industry’s own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes. There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case it was shamelessly overt. I of course boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it. #familyfareawards"

Well, it certainly makes sense, doesn't it? What do you think about the same? Leave in your comments below.
