Actor Aamir Khan is known for delivering many memorable performances over the last two decades in his career. However, despite such strong performances, one wonders at the absence of this superstar at the prestigious award functions, where almost all the B-town biggies are present.
Today, when many award ceremonies are close to losing their credibility, what irked Aamir Khan so much that he decided never to attend them?
Let’s take a look at the same, through pictures.
Finally! Stopped making his presence felt
So, perhaps this is the reason that still today Aamir Khan hasn’t shown up on any film awards the one’s he didn’t find credible.
Gave the function a miss
Finally, Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist picked up his first Best Actor for ‘Raja Hindustani’ in 1997 but perhaps it was too late as the damage was already done for him. He didn’t attend the ceremony that year and never made it to any future ones as well.
The final blow
Following this, the final blow, sealing his displeasure towards the Bollywood awards came in the year 1996 when one of his best performances as tapori Munna in ‘Rangeela’ was not given the coveted statute. That year Shah Rukh Khan had picked up the trophy for his film ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’.
The first blow
After this successful win, Aamir was perhaps the only actor to hold the record for getting a nomination for the Best Actor category consecutively for 9 years (1989-1997) in Filmfare Awards. Reportedly, the actor was upset losing the award to Anil Kapoor’s performance in ‘Beta’ in the year 1993. The reason for this is he felt that his performance in ‘Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar’ was much superior and even his film had picked up the Best Film award that year.
The first awards ceremony
Aamir Khan had first attended the Filmfare Awards ceremony which was held in the year 1989 where he received the Best Debutant award for ‘Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak’. Though he was nominated for Best Actor as well, he lost it out to Anil Kapoor’s performance in ‘Tezaab’.
