star screen awards 2017 winners Star Screen Awards 2017: Bollywood wins hearts by awarding deserving nominees.

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. GRATITUDE πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»β€οΈ” His director Ashiwini Iyer Tiwari also wrote, “There are times when you have faith in the other person more than your self. 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.

      WHY "SOME" HINDUS DONT BELIEVE IN LOVE JIHAD.........the ONLY REASON behind this is that our Hinduism NEVER TEACHES US to convert anyone!!! So we cant believe that other religions will teach and motivate them to convert others........but if you OBSERVE CAREFULLY you will find that islam is ALL ABOUT CONVERTING OTHERS,,, ENTIRE CULT of islam is based on conversion, every single person who calls themselves muslims are actually convert!!!.....islam works like a CHAIN MARKETING SCHEME, where those convert first are told that if they convert more, they will get heaven and allah will be happy.......And in this scheme all the Madarsa, Maulavi, etc motivate muslims to convert others, by marrying them, by brainwashing them or whatever..........BUT DO WE HINDUS ever get such teachings when we visit temples??? NO we dont!!......AND THATS THE REASON we cant believe that others will do it....we think they are also like us...but they have hidden motives...... ###Share on WHATSAPP/WEB-SITES

        LOVE JIHAD TACTICS TO CONVERT started in a PLANNED MANNER from mid 1990s........when UNDERWORLD put their muslim agents in bollywood with the purpose of SPREADING ISLAM through bollywood and spread love jihad by marrying UNSUSPECTING HINDU ACTRESSES..............Since Hinduism doesnt teach anyone to convert so we dont suspect others motives of converting us...........but islam is ALL ABOUT CONVERSION, every single person in islam is a convert..........so these SHARUKH, SALMAN, AMIR etc all started marrying Unsuspecting Hindu ancestress in a systematic manner, and started SHOWING OFF THEM IN MEDIA to send a msg of love jihad...........these muslims of bollywood keep visiting islamic countries like saudi, dubai and Haz etc,,,,,,Underworld and Maulavis tell them SPECIFICALLY to marry only Hindu actresses to send an "Inspiration" for love jihad..........We must boycot these islamic people in bollywood....no matter which political party we support....... ##### Share it on WHATSAPP/WEB-SITES

          -----MURDER OF BHAKTI SINGER GULSHAN KUMAR by a muslim singer nadeem of nadeem-shravan fame was done on the orders of underworld, he was murdered becaz he was becoming an obstacle in ISLAMISATION OF BOLLYWOOD, which muslim actors/singers/producers were trying to do with the support of underworld.............underworld invested fake Indian CURRENCY PRINTED IN PAKISTAN in bollywood through these muslim agents like nadeem, SHARUKH, SALMAN, AMIR etc etc...............then they used this money to kill our people in blasts and running kidnapping and extortion rackets--------------We HINDUS DUE TO IGNORENCE kept supporting these islamic agents IN THE PAST, but now we should stop watching their movies and on TV.............muslims again stabbed us in back, we supported those sharukh, salman, amir etc and gave them all the MONEY AND FAME, but in return they made money for islamic terrorists, spread islam from behind the curtains and mocked our religion... ##### Share it on WHATSAPP/WEB-SITES

            ...UNDERWORLD/TERROR FUNDING IN BOLLYWOOD started from mid 1990s, and muslims like SHARUKH, SALMAN, AMIR also started to rise during that period..............This WAS NOT COINCIDENCE, That terror funding was used to make movies invloving these muslims, and some Hindu directors/producers were THREATEND to cast these muslims in their films and invest terror money.............terrorists with the help of these muslim actors made HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY.........and then underworld used that money to do blasts in our country, attack on civilains and army...........We Hindus kept supporting them in THE PAST becaz MEDIA AND P.R. EXCERCISE always showed these islamic agents in bollywood as good people...........but underworld/terror funding in bollywood is a fact and a big threat to OUR security....... bollywood is the BIGGEST ISLAMIC ORGANIZATION in India and we Hindus must boycott islamic people in bollywood..... ##### Share it on WHATSAPP/WEB-SITES.
