Since last few years, Bollywood’s biggest award shows have come under scanner for being rigged and biased. People had started believing that no matter what powerhouse performers like Manoj Bajpayee and Naseeruddin Shah do on screen, and no matter how many hearts they win, the main awards will only be given to popular actors like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. But at the Star Screen Awards 2017, the tables turned and it was the newer lot of Bollywood which managed to sweep through major trophies leaving fans happy. It is indeed a moment to celebrate for all the cinema-goers who have believed in these actors and wanted to see them being appreciated for the incredible work they have been silently doing for the past few years.

At the award show, despite the presence of stars like Salman Khan, it was Rajkummar Rao and Irrfan Khan who grabbed the Best Actor titles. Also, while films like Tumhari Sulu and Bareilly Ki Barfi won accolades and bagged a lot of nominations and honours, Dangal remained the highest winner. Rajkummar even won award for Best Supporting Actor for Bareilly Ki Barfi. He shared his happiness on Twitter and wrote, “Best Actor #NEWTON, Best Supporting Actor #BAREILLYKIBARFI, Best Film #NEWTON. Thank you #StarScreenAwards2017. Thank u team #Newton & #BareillyKiBarfi & all u wonderful people for all the love & blessings. Thank u Mom.

More happiness for you @RajkummarRao may you reach the stars always.This award for #starscreen best supporting role for #bareillykibarfi will be special in my life forever.”

Irrfan took to Twitter and wrote, “Haasil se Hindi Medium tak, villain se popular Hero tak…. Thankyou #StarScreenAwards2017” Their win in a way welcomes a change which Bollywood lovers wanted to see and witness.
