The 65th Filmfare Awards courted a lot of controversy especially since it chose to ignore a lot of well-deserving films and performances and focused only on Gully Boy that snatched 13 awards. Netizens, lyricist Manoj Muntashir, singer Neha Bhasin and Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel called out Filmfare and the jury members for their biasness and partiality as well as celebrating mediocrity and nepotism.
Today, at the trailer launch of her Netflix film Guilty, Kiara Advani was asked about the controversy surrounding the Filmfare Awards. However, the actress dodged the question and said, “I was so happy celebrating a wedding in my family that I am not aware of this. However, Kabir Singh won the Best Album of the Year, we won, so I am very happy.”
