The commercially and critically successful Akshay Kumar starrer Airlift went unnoticed at awards shows this season which sparked a controversy. It irked many fans and they slammed especially Filmfare Awards.
Akshay Kumar has kept mum on this issue so far. 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.”
Earlier actress Kareena Kapoor Khan had revealed on Koffee With Karan 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, 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."
