With all the massive hits like Sholay that Dharmendra was a part of and with all the appeal that he’s had with the masses those days, one would think that he would have won the filmfare a number of times in his career. But you’d be shocked to know that he’s never ever won it all in all of the 38 years that he was still acting. Ironically, he received the lifetime achievement award in 1997, long after he’s retired from the field!
“I’ve longed for this Filmfare trophy for 37 years… but it always evaded me. Every year, I’d stitch a new suit and buy a matching tie in the hope that I’d be called to receive a trophy… then after a few years I gave up. I decided that I would attend the function wearing a T-shirt and shorts… ya kachcha pahen ke chala jaaonga (or I would just wear underwear)” was what Dharmendra said when he finally won the award in 1997..
Bollywood’s Khiladi surprisingly is also one among those actors who’s literally ruled the industry for a very long time but never in his career won the best actor award at all! The only time he’s won an award was the best actor in a negative role award that he’s won for ‘Ajnabee’.
Starting his career in the year 1990, Akshay Kumar worked in nearly 100 films in all of his career and some roles that he played were absolutely award-deserving, so it’s totally unfair that he hasn’t won an award at all..don’t you think?
The gorgoeus Kapoor girl has always chosen some really intense and offbeat roles in her career, like Sawariya, Bhaag Milka Bhaag, I Hate Love Stories and Raanjhanaa but unfortunately was not able to win as amny awards as her contemporary actresses like Deepika managed to win.
But there’s nothing to worry really, as she is just in the beginning of her career and with a very long career ahead of her, we are sure that Sonam Kapoor will very soon get the recognition that she deserves and win an award..
Yes, Katrina Kaif, despite being the numeruno actress in bollywood and despite being a part of really big films that would not have been half as successful without her in them, hasn’t ever won an award in the whole of her career! The one time that she was nominated was for New York for which she hasn’t won it.
They’ve watched in awe as she danced away like a diva for Chikni Chameli and Sheila Ki Jawani and couldn’t take eyes off her whenever she was on the screen, but ignored the fact that if there’s anyone in bollywood who deserves an award, it is her! We sure hope that they realize the grave mistake that they are committing and give her an award already.
Govinda might have been the superstar of the 90′s and every single person in the whole of the country might have wanted to be like him back in the 80′s and 90′s but despite all that, he’s never ever won an award for the best actor. The only time that he’s won an award was for the best ‘comedian’ for Haseena Maan Jaayegi despite all the 140 films that he’s acted in.
So unless he’s making a comeback sometime soon, Govinda might not be able to win any other award except for the lifetime achievement award which he can win only 10 or 20 years from now..
