Bollywood went into shock when Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn were ignored at major award functions. Though it was hoped that they will get their due at Filmfare Awards, which is the most prestigious award function in Bollywood. But surprisingly they did not even get nominations. Other than that there were many controversial winners. Lets take a look.

Best Actor:

There is no doubt that Ranveer Singh did a fabolous job in Bajirao Mastani but honestly speaking Salman Khan richly deserve this award for Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The film was also the biggest hit of the year. Best actor critics award was given to Amitabh Bachchan for Piku but in fact he was in a supporting role. Nawazuddin Siddiqui or Irrfan Khan would have been a better option.

Best Actress:

Kangana Ranaut won the critics award for Tanu Weds Manu Returns while Deepika won popular award for Piku. But it should be the other way around as TWMR was much more successful than Piku. It was also the first female oriented film to cross 100 crore mark. But since Kangana does not attend the award shows (and rightly so), they awarded Deepika.

Best Film:

You don’t need rocket science to figure out that Bajrangi Bhaijaan was the best film of 2015. It was the biggest success at the box office and also at the television premire. The film had universal appeal, positive reviews and terrific word of mouth. Yet the award was won by Bajirao Mastani. The critics award was given to Piku and films like Masaan and Talvar were ignored.

Best Supporting Actor:

Nawazuddin Siddiqui was flawless in Badlapur and richly deserved best supporting actor. Instead the award was won by Anil Kapoor for Dil Dhadakne Do.

Best Debut Male:

Sooraj Pancholi was way below the mark in Hero. The film was also low on content as the audience were laughing on the emotional sequences. Vicky Kaushal was brilliant in Masaan and even won best debut award at some other functions. Also even Kapil Sharma would have been a better option than Sooraj as his film KKPK turned out to be super hit.

Best Song:

Gerua was the biggest hit song of the year but Arijit Singh won best singer award for Sooraj Dooba Hain. T-Series connection may be.

These are just few examples. There were many more deserving films and performances which have been ignored by Filmfare.

It is a shame that we do not have any credible award functions here in Bollywood. It is now an open secret that awards are up for purchase. Bollywood have to wake up and take a stand against this. But will they?

  2. One time u are saying that they should be awarded based on how good they have their job and then youre saying salman should have cuz his film was the biggest hit. I love salman but what he did was he came out of his cliché acting n did a good job not the best . Ranveer was way better

    • Tara you love salman my foot this artical is porfect bajrangi bhaijaan ww all time bolckbuster you think people are fool highest footfalls of the decade bb
      one more eg:- filmfare give best actor Hrithik for dhoom2 Not for munna bhai mbbs (sanjay)

  3. And I agree with u that vicky deserved best debut ; sooraj was horrible . Best supporting actor should have been nawaz NOT anil kapoor . N they completely ignored manji.
    Ajay n akshay should have been nominated.
    N one thing more bajrangi was a nice movie n became so big becuz of salman n got best story award . Bajirao mastani wad way more well made movie it wad a masterpiece so deserved best film award

  4. Actually Ranveer Singh very much deserved the Best Actor award thats what I feel. I mean yeah Salman acted well in Bajrangi but it was not something out of his comfort zone. Ranveer on the other hand was completely transformed for his role, something which required a lot of hard work and passion. The kind of role he was offered and the effort he put in.. it was nothing like Ranveer Singh as we know of him. So I disagree with you on this one.

  5. Money hai to honey hai…….nthing possible

    shahrukh , kajal aur Sonam kapoor ne esa kya kar diya 2015 main Jo inhe nomination diye gye aur sabse bada shock hai nawaj ko koi award nii mila manjhi is fabulous movie & Acting to do……bajrangi bhaijaan aur badlapur me suprb acting ki but….

  7. wtf!!!!!!!!! this is your opinion but you want to make it general woooow what a concept you like salman i liked ranveer singh so if they chose salman you satisfied if not it’s fake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and kangna for what???????????? it’s deepika’s year and she deserves every bit of it and to your knowledage their is no award for double role beacause this is not real!!! you can’t be there twice yes you get nominated but to win !! never happened anywhere in the world and for this stupid tone kangna doesn’t attend so they gave it to deepika ! what about last year, was she there???? why she received it while priyanka was there and they could give it to her so please please
    p.s this is the most stupid article i have read on this site big dislike

  8. Well said BA.
    I thought ajay and akshay thoroughly deserved a nomination. Even salman for that matter fit PRDP. I thought he was sensational in the movie.
    But the fact is..these guys don’t care anymore for awards.

  9. bajirav nhi hota to filmfare award bajrangi ka hi tha. so award is not fake. but supporting award must be gone to nawajudin.

  10. Salman and Amir are above of any award they don’t need it, Salman always said that he don’t want award all he care about love of his fans that’s the biggest reward for him. Salman attend award function b/c he wants to entertain his fans, it’s doesn’t matter for him which platform it is whether it is movie or TV or award function.

  11. Ranveer singh hell yeahhhh … He is. deserve that award !!! …. He didn’t act he just lived this role .. His transformation is just WOW … He keeps 1 and half year bald head , mooch , he learn: Marathi accent , horse riding , sword fighting , and – even eating sleeping standing sitting everything is changed !!! Hater gonna hate no matter He is the best !!

  12. Superb Article BollywoodArena… Yeah It’s A shame for bollywood …Such a Fake awards…Rightly said Filmfake Awards….Non sense Winners and Rubbish Nominations…..How Can they Forgot Akki and Ajay Devgn…Bullshit Filmfare/Fake….I’m gonna Boycott this Function in future…Best actor must be Salman Khan and Best Film Without any doubt BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN…F***** Sooraj Dooba hai Best song….omg…What abt Gerua U Foolish Filmfare Fakers…

  13. Thanks bollyarena, well said. I am 100 percent agree with you. Salman Khan was more deserving best actor award and bajrangi bhaijaan best film. Filmfare is film fake awards. I salute you bollywood arena.
