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.

“Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara”, released in 2011. Need to chant this title to myself everyday 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 Very creative artwork @kalakkii
