Bollywood seems to have a divided opinion when it comes to award functions. While most of the celebrities happily attend these events, there are others like Akshay Kumar and Aamir Khan who have always been vocal about questioning the credibility of award functions.
Recently, Taapsee Pannu too slammed these functions and called them 'beautiful television shows'. In an interview to Bollywood Hungama. the 'Naam Shabana' actress said, " see what I've achieved and received. I'm always overwhelmed in that and I'm always happy. Mera life mein yahi maan na hai ke jo nahi mila uske baare mein mat socho jo mila usme khush raho. Today when you see award shows, they're beautiful television shows you've to sit and watch people dance and get together. The fact that only winners get to attend the shows is a big indication so let's watch them as beautiful TV shows."
She further added, "When I got a rising star award at an award show (I'm rising only since so much time) someone from their media asked me how you're feeling. I said this does not validate of me being good or bad as an actor. It's just a bunch of people who believed that you've achieved something or you've reached somewhere. That person asks me how can a person getting an award say such a thing about award, generally it's like who don't get award say that. I said tabhi bolungi toh you'll say sour grapes. So I said let me achieve a position where I get the award then I'll say how I feel about awards."
