‘Boycott Filmfare’ trends as Gully Boy, Ananya Panday win top awards
Fans are angry that Akshay Kumar’s Kesari and Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 did not win a single Filmfare award
The internet is miffed with Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy sweeping 13 awards at the 65th Filmfare Awards, which was held on Saturday. Netizens are also cheesed off that Ananya Panday, who forayed into Bollywood with last year’s Student of the Year 2, won for Best Debut.
On Monday, hashtags such as #boycottfilmfare and #boycottfilmfareawards started trending on Twitter. Fans are angry that Akshay Kumar’s Kesari and Hrithik Roshan’s Super 30 did not win a single award. Two days ago, lyricist Manoj Muntashir, whose song Teri Mitti from Kesari was tipped to win, tweeted about the snub, vowing to boycott award shows for good.
Good bye Awards..!!! pic.twitter.com/iaZm0za40u
