Why are Akshay Kumar, Dangal girls missing from Filmfare nominees list?

Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have been named as nominees for Filmfare awards but these stars are conspicuous by their absence.

Akshay Kumar films and Dangal girls – Sanya Malhotra and Fatima Sana Shaikh, are not nominated in this year’s Filmfare.

The year of 2016 was a roller-coaster ride for the audiences as well as the filmmakers. While we saw the heart-wrenching stories like Pink and Udta Punjab, we were also entertained by Kapoor & Sons and Housefull 3. After such performances, a reward to them is not a bad idea. Usually, when we think of an award show or an award, we know it is considered to be a form of appreciation. However, with the nominations of an upcoming award show have left us nothing but shocked and disappointed.

Irrespective of his marvellous performance in three films – Airlift, Rustom and Housefull 3, this year, Akshay Kumar has not even bagged nominations at the upcoming 62nd Jio Filmfare Awards 2017, and what’s even more shocking is the fact that though Aamir Khan’s film has been recognised under many categories, there is not even a mention of the debutants, Fatima Sana Shaikh or Sanya Malhotra, under the debut section or supporting role section.

To add to it, while Rajkummar Rao has been nominated in best supporting role category, Manoj Bajpayee, the driving force of the film, has not bagged any nomination. So, while we are talking about it. As a layman, it seriously makes us want to question the integrity of these awards. Now, some might even argue that the stars we have named here, they do not require this kind of promotions but then why is even Aamir in the category or Shah Rukh Khan?

However, nowhere we would say that any of the nominated actors are any less deserving than people we think should have bagged a nomination, at least.
