Mumbai: Social media pundits went into a frenzy when both commercially and critically successful Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Airlift’ went unnoticed at awards shows this season. Things aggravated when a certain, well-known Awards show did not even mention the film in any of its categories.

Akshay, who many believed deserved a nod in the ‘Best Actor’ category, if not win an award, has kept mum on this issue. But when he was asked if he felt wronged about the awards drought this season, he reportedly said, “That’s okay because maybe I don’t deserve it. There are many people who have done much better so they get it.”

 

Last to last week, actress Kareena Kapoor Khan had revealed on a chat show that Akshay had advised her against worrying about awards and to emphasise more on rewards. When Akki learned about this revelation made by the actress, who has co-starred with him in eight films, he jokingly said, “She said that? I thought it was a secret. I told her to never say about it. I have to have a word with her. I just said ‘keep on working, don’t think so much. If you don’t get any award, just think that you’ve got the reward and carry on’”

 

He sure loves to work without expecting recognition in return. Next level dedication!
