Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif will be honoured with the Smita Patil Memorial Award by the Priyadarshni Academy Global Award on September 19 in Mumbai in recognition of being an outstanding individual who has shown excellence in her work in films.
But it seems that the Twitter world is not too happy with this decision by the Priyadarshni Academy, the NGO giving away this award. Many think that this is an insult to the memory and acting prowess of the late actress who won immense critical acclaim for her powerful performances in films like Manthan, Bhumika and Arth. Check out some really funny tweets on Katrina Kaif below.

Katrina Kaif getting the Smita Patil award is wonderful news. It has paved the way for Chetan Bhagat getting the Nobel Prize for Literature
An actress who can hardly speak Hindi, wins an award for performance in Hindi movies. Incredible India. #KatrinaKaif

On the work front, Katrina Kaif's last release with Sidharth Malhotra, Baar Baar Dekho, didn't perform well at the box office. It would be Katrina's third flop film after Phantom and Fitoor.
Meanwhile, the actress has also been finalised to be cast opposite ex-boyfriend Salman Khan in the sequel to Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger Zinda Hai.
Salman khan and Katrina Kaif's Tiger Zinda Hai will hit the screens on Christmas, next year. Reportedly, she would also work opposite Shahrukh Khan in Anand L. Rai's film.
