Bollywood actor Aamir Khan
known for his firm beliefs as far as work is concerned and is also
famous for not attending award functions because he believes that
they’re all rigged. At the recently held Nokia 14th Star Screen Awards
(to be aired on Star Plus on Jan 27, 7 30 pm onwards
), the organizers placed a huge cut-out of Aamir Khan
from the film Taare Zameen Par to make up for his absence at the function.
Aamir’s latest release Taare Zameen Par bagged 17 nominations in the
award function. Conspicuous by Aamir’s absence, the organisers still
wanted the audience to feel his presence and hence each time his name
was announced, the camera would move to an Aamir cut-out placed in the
audience for his virtual presence. Host Sajid also ended up making a
dig at the actor’s nonappearance during the award ceremony.
The highlight of the evening was also the announcement of the Best
Director Awards. For the first time at an award function, The Best
Director Award went to not just one, but two well-deserving people,
for Taare Zameen Par and Shimit Amin
for Chak De.
Remember to tune in to STAR Plus for
all the excitement of Nokia 14th Annual STAR Screen Awards on Sunday,
January 27th, 7.30 pm onwards.
