Don’t care about film awards: Irrfan Khan

Mumbai, July 2 (IANS) Internationally acclaimed Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan says awards can only mean anything to him they are genuine.

The actor says that some awards like tge Padma Shri are very important for him but film awards hold no importance for him.

“Some awards and recognition matters to me like when I was given the Padma Shri. I don’t care about film awards at all. They (the organisers) also don’t give me award me unless and until it’s a necessity for them.

“Even the National Award was given to me when they couldn’t ignore me, they couldn’t avoid me and that’s why they gave me the National Award. Otherwise, I was never nominated for the National Award. I received it for ‘Paan Singh Tomar’,” he told IANS when asked about the importance of awards in his life.

The actor believes when the awards are partial there is no sense in it.

“When the awards are partial then there is no point, no sense of that award because it is not genuine. Awards can only mean anything or something when it is genuine. Otherwise I don’t know how people even receive that award when they know that they have exercised a kind of lobbying to win it. How do they face themselves when they receive the trophy,” he said.

“I mean don’t you feel ashamed receiving awards that are not genuine,” said the actor who is currently busy promoting his forthcoming film “Madaari”.
