1) I am surprized to see that there are 02 categories “Best Actor in Comic Role” & “Best actor in negative role” that does not include any female nominee………extremely surprizing…….

For me Priyanka & kiron kher were too good in their comic performance ……..no way less than Abhishek & others. so either separate them in subcategories……(Male & female) or also do justice to the female talent.

2) Extremely surprized to see that “Fashion” was not included in the list best movies……….wonder y?

3) Priyanka was outstanding in Dostana……in terms facial expressions, dialog deliver etc……i am surprized to see that she is not nominated for best actress for this film……….she should be nominated twice for both the roles(i.e., fashion & dostana)

Best regards,

From a proud Pakistani
