Abhay Deol exposes Filmfare, reveals they nominated Hrithik & Katrina as lead actors and him & Farhan as supporting actors in ZNMD

After Kangana Ranaut, Abhay Deol is amongst the one slamming the whole Bollywood industry for lobbying. The actor reveals an incident from his film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara when the Filmfare awards allegedly showed bitterness in nominating the actors. The awards which are considered one of the prestigious awards in Bollywood, nominated Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in the leading actors' category, while Abhay and Farhan Akhtar were nominated as supporting actors.

 
He wrote, "Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara', released in 2011. Need to chant this title to myself every day nowadays! Also, a great watch when anxious or stressed. I would like to mention that almost all the award functions demoted me and Farhan from main leads, and nominated us as "supporting actors". Hrithik and Katrina were nominated as "actors in a leading role". So by the industry's own logic, this was a film about a man and a woman falling in love, with the man supported by his friends for whatever decisions he takes. There are many covert and overt ways in which people in the industry lobby against you. In this case, it was shamelessly overt. I, of course, boycotted the awards but Farhan was ok with it. #familyfareawards."
 
After the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, the complete Bollywood industry has come under the spotlight for various malpractice against young actors. Kangana Ranaut is one of the many who's openly criticising nepotism and lobbying practices in the industry.
