Emraan Hashmi recently opened up about of award shows in the film industry and said that their value has diluted over the years. He also talked about his relationship with his Gangster (2006) co-star Kangana Ranaut.

During the podcast with Shubhankar Mishra, he was asked about what Kangana had earlier said about award shows being worthless. He responded to it, saying, “Maybe because she isn’t winning any longer? I remember winning once, but I soon understood the ‘game’ behind this. It’s essentially a barter deal; you make an appearance and dance.”

He added that he doesn’t want to diss award shows. “But if someone wants to decorate their living room by dancing, all power to them. But I can’t pat myself on the back and say that I have delivered a good performance, because it’s a lie. You should win if you have done well. What’s the point of winning if it’s going to be a barter deal? The value of these awards shows has been diluted over the years” he said.

The actor reflected on his relationship with Kangana and said, “I am very fond of her, she’s very fond of me. Unfortunately, we haven’t met in a while. We last worked together in 2015 on a Dharma film. We haven’t met since then, but I am very fond of her. We have done a lot of films together, so our tuning is special.”

Emraan and Kangana were last seen together in the black-comedy Ungli (2014). They have earlier starred in films like Raaz: The Mystery Continues (2009) and Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai (2010).
