New Delhi, July 27 (HS) The debate of Nepotism in Bollywood has intensified these days. Meanwhile, the questions are also being raised on the award ceremony, its category and the manner of awarding the stars after a journalist wrote an article revealing the secrets of award shows and shared it on social media.

Director Shekhar Kapur wrote in one his tweets, "Bollywood film awards are not an appreciation of creativity, but a negotiation. Will you dance for me on stage if I give you an award? Terrific fearless expose by a journalist once in charge."

Responding to this singer Adnan Sami wrote, "Absolutely correct! I have faced similar ‘negotiations’ where they have wanted me to perform free of charge and bag the award... I told them to F*** Off- I will never ‘buy’ an award!! My dignity & self respect is all that I will take into my grave- nothing else!!"

Earlier actor Ranvir Shorey also shocking revelations about award shows. In a series of tweets he said, "This actually unfolded on a popular Bollywood awards show: A star kid is co-hosting the show. They announce the next category - Best Actor. The nominees are played out, and the star kid is one of the nominees. Surprise-surprise!"

"To present the award, the hosts invite two esteemed film personalities, who happen to be the star kid’s parents. What a sweet coincidence! The presenters open the envelope and announce the winner to be - drumroll please! - the star kid, of course! What a Kodak family moment!" he said.

His another tweet read, "The star kid walks from the host’s dias to accept the award and makes a short thank you speech and heads back to hosting the rest of the show like business as usual. This is how mainstream Bollywood is a family. - The End -
