We have a fresh controversy regarding Bollywood awards! When it comes to credibility, Bollywood awards have nothing much to offer. It’s been the case for many decades. Ever since the award season kicked off in December last year, we have been waiting for the controversy. And we finally have one.
Stardust Awards is the latest culprit. The award, which gives prominence to upcoming talents, landed in a fresh controversy last week when they announced the winners. Though fans are shocked about number of categories, they are all fuming about the music category.
Honey Singh, the hugely popular rapper, who churned out hits after hits, walked away with ‘Best Music Director’ award with 4 other music directors for the songs in Yaariyan. Notably, Yaariyan wasn’t a great musical. Just that one song titled “Sunny Sunny”, composed by Honey Singh, had became a huge chart-buster. Pritam also composed a song for the movie. Surprisingly, Yaariyan received the award beating A R Rahman’s score in Highway & Amit Trivedi’s winning songs in Queen.
Soon after the awards, there were rumors that Stardust Award organizers were forced to give awards to Yaaryan. According to rumors, T-Series, which own the music of Yaariyan, threatened the award organizers last minute by saying that they will take legal action against the illegal use of T-series songs for the performances scheduled for the award. Fearing the cancellation of the awards at the last minute, they were forced to give awards to Yaariyan. Well, we don’t know about the legitimacy of this claim.
All that we know is that Bollywood awards are getting uglier by the day!
