Everyone knows Aamir Khan is a perpetual absentee at the award ceremonies. Well, lots of comical plays have been staged on his unique trait. But nothing seems to be shaking his firm decision as the actor admits of receiving couple of Indian awards wholeheartedly, which still remains as an unknown fact for many. During the recent press meet that was held with accordance to the release of Dhobi Ghat, Aamir Khan and his wife-filmmaker Kiran Rao interacted with media channels.
When it was time to poke Aamir’s habit of attending Oscars and not Indian awards, he came up with a surprising response. “I would love to keep away from certain organizations for which I have no values. Instead, I wholeheartedly accept the felicitations from the organizations that are quite unparalleled in its mottos. Say for instance, I have attended couple of award functions – Deenanath Mangeshkar Awards and Gollapudi Srinivas Awards. Gollapudi Srinivas Award is hosted by a prominent family of Telugu film industry in memory of its director Gollapudi Srinivas, who lost his life while shooting his first film. Every year, a best debutant filmmaker chosen from the entire Indian film industry is honored with this award, which I received for my Taare Zameen Par. Not many of the media channels knew about my presence in these award ceremonies.”
Totting up on these awards ceremonies, Mr. Perfectionist stated that they weren’t hosted for the sake of TRPs or spinning revenues, but for the pure reasons of honoring the talents.
