The Filmfare awards took place last week and while everyone was celebrating their wins, Harshvardhan Kapoor came out and slammed Filmfare for giving the best debut award to Diljit Dosanjh for his performance in Udta Punjab. Harsh claimed that this isn’t his debut movie and can’t be considered as one because he’s a well established Punjabi star. He also added that he came with no experience while Dosanjh has been doing this for a while now.
In an interview with DNA, Diljit finally opened up on the matter.
I am not hurt. I am not sad. I am thankful to Filmfare Awards for the honour that they gave me. I don’t think I was deserving enough. It’s a big award (and) I think they would have seen something in me and so they gave me the award. For me the love of my fans matter the most and that’s the biggest award for me. I love Harshvardhan Kapoor. I also like his father Anil Kapoor, he is a superstar.”
That’s very gracious of him, don’t you think?
