Please give me a Filmfare award:Katrina

19 02 2010

For once, diplomacy saw its defeat. Katrina Kaif surprised one and all when she chose Priyanka Chopra and Vidya Balan as the two actresses who deserved to get the Filmfare Best Actress award for 2009.

“If I had to choose, apart from myself, I would choose Priyanka or Vidya. ‘Kaminey’ is one of my favourite films . And I loved Vidya in ‘Paa’,” said the current toast of B-Town while announcing the 55th Idea Filmfare Awards 2009. “But why can’t I choose myself?” she added with a mischievous grin.

Besides Katrina, who has been nominated for ‘New York’, the other nominees include Deepika Padukone (‘Love Aaj Kal’) and Kareena Kapoor (‘3 Idiots’ and ‘Kurbaan’). India’s oldest cinema awards which is often compared to the Oscars, is scheduled to be held on the 27th of February at the Yash Raj Studios, Mumbai.

Dressed in a figure-hugging brown knee-length dress, Katrina further said that she would be happier if her movies win the award. “Everybody wants to win. But I would want my movies to win,” she said. However, she added, “I am happy being nominated. I don’t want to go through that nail-biting experience of whether I am winning the award or not. As long as I am nominated, it is fine. And I am more than happy to be part of the event than winning any award. This is my second year at the Filmfare awards and I will be performing, too,” said Katrina who was found adjusting her hair too very often.

When queried whether her beau Salman Khan comfort her, since he has never got a single best actor award in his entire career of over two decades, and nor has she. While nodding in agreement vigorously, Katrina’s spontaneous reaction to the organisers was – “So please give me an award,” amidst uncontrollable giggles. And the organisers couldn’t help saying that they should have brought a trophy for Katrina on the day of announcement itself.

Speaking on the occasion, Tarun Rai, CEO, Worldwide Media Private Limited, said, “I am really amazed that we have been doing this for 55 long years. Year after year, we have been celebrating and once again we will raise a toast to the immense talent of our film industry. Earlier, we merely had three categories and handful of fims. Today, we have 111 films vying for 37 categories.” Continuing the legacy, nominees were chosen through audience polls and the nominations were then whetted by a specially appointed jury for the final results.
