Mumbai: Every year has its inexplicable omissions from the awards list. This year was no different! It had its share of baffling oversights. Taapsee Pannu’s restrained and gripping performance in Pink went completely un-awarded.
Commenting on the omission, Taapsee laughs, “My performance in Pink has gone unrecognised by all the awards functions this year. So, let’s not point fingers at any one awards organiser. I am used to being ignored for awards. My aim is to become a favourite among the audiences. Awards are not as important as audiences’ approval of the work I’m doing.”
Commenting on the film Pink being ignored in all the major categories of the just-concluded FilmFare awards, Taapsee says, “I think Pink has proved what it had to. No award can further endorse its message. If it is not given awards, our achievement is not diminished in any way. The awards can’t equal the numbers of hearts that we’ve touched.”
Incidentally, Taapsee’s Baby co-star, Akshay Kumar has also been ignored for the awards. Taapsee responds nonchalantly to this as well, “I don’t want to think about awards and waste my time. I am busy working hard so that my films become successful. This is more important to me than these awards. I am sure Akshay sir feels much the same.”
