As we know, Aamir Khan didn’t like to attend the awards, expect National Awards. So, that’s the reason why Dangal didn’t get any nominations in Filmfare Awards, happened in early 2017. Even, Dangal didn’t get any nominations in IIFA too. Since then, a lot of questions being raised about the credibility of such awards.
Recently, Censor Board Chief Pahlaj Nihalani even burst on IIFA Awards by calling it as a Paid Holiday for the Celebs in the foreign countries. This is not all, even social media went ablaze with this news.
After hearing all these flak, IIFA has now issued a statement in clarification. Director of Wizcraft International, Andre Timmins said, “So basically, in IIFA, forms are sent to various production houses. They fill those forms up and send it back to us. Those forms are then put out to the industry for voting and from there it becomes a nomination. So, Dangal has not sent their entry in. We would love Dangal to be a part of it. I think it’s a movie that’s broken all records. We love Aamir Khan and the two little girls. They did a great job. But unfortunately, they didn’t send their entry in. We feel sad.”
Altogether, it is now clear that it is not IIFA’s mistake as they didn’t get any entry from Dangal side.
