Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur is very vocal about the dirty practices in Bollywood. He has been talking about ‘nepotism’, ‘outsider vs insider’ debate, and a lot more things that have been happening in the industry. He had also taken a dig at Bollywood Awards. In a tweet, he wrote, “Bollywood film awards are not an appreciation of creativity, but a negotiation. Will you dance for me on stage if I give you an award? Terrific fearless expose by a journalist once in charge. Must read” referring to an article by a senior journalist who exposed the Bollywood Awards shows.

Replying to Shekhar’s tweet, Adnan Sami shared his own ordeal. “Absolutely correct! I have faced similar ‘negotiations’ where they have wanted me to perform free of charge and bag the award… I told them to F*** Off- I will never ‘buy’ an award!! My dignity & self-respect is all that I will take into my grave- nothing else!!”, he wrote.
