Actor Ranveer Singh, who has been attending numerous award functions of late, says that sometimes he is not so sure about them.

"Sometimes I find awards questionable. At times I get surprised looking at the winners' list... at times it glares out to me as well, but it's all subjective. For me, awards means live performance and I love live performances," Ranveer told IANS.

This year, Ranveer's "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela" got nominations, but his "Lootera" was snubbed.

Just like his co-star Sonakshi Sinha, he too is disappointed that the period love saga was not nominated despite getting critical acclaim.

He said: "It is very disappointing that the technical team of 'Lootera' didn't get their due credit. 'Lootera' is technically one of the superior films of Hindi cinema.

"I would rate 'Lootera' more than 'Ram-leela' as 'Ram-leela' was easier for me to do, while Lootera was tougher. I am proud of 'Lootera'. It's a timeless film. It's sad that 'Lootera' went unnoticed by many."

After the success of "Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-leela", Ranveer will be next seen in "Gunday" and currently he is busy promoting the action thriller.

Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the drama, set in 1970s Kolkata, will see Ranveer teaming up with Arjun Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra.

    Ranveer and Sonakshi were both amazing in Lootera and the entire team deserves applause for that film!

    I completely agree, Lootera and Aurangzeb both deserved so much more in my opinion. Lootera made me fall in love with both of them.

    I'm just glad that a beautiful movie like Lootera is not nominated in the same category like a trash movie Chennai Express

    Awards never was a meritocracy thing anyways, but still whether a film is acclaimed and liked or not is highly reflected on the money it manages to get, because it's people/public who pay to see a movie, and if a movie is achieving crores, then of course it must be liked... Each their own point of view... Doesnt mean one can say what is garbage or not! Definition of garbage would vary according to people!

    It is pissing off how Amit Trivedi has been ignored in all the award shows this year..

    I do agree with what he is hinting at.
    Lootera was a beautiful film. Subtle and Simple yet beautiful in that fact itself. The promo itself had me enraptured.

    The irony of it, when did award functions truly acknowledged excellence? Glad that lootera isn't a part of that rat race where meaningless movies making some hundred crores take credit, it's far superior to be put in the same category.
