Murugadoss Slams National Film Awards
Just a day after the 64th National Film Awards were announced, popular South director AR Murugadoss has come out in open slamming the jury. He said that the jury was partial.
“Can clearly witness the influence & partiality of people in jury, it’s biased,” said Murugadoss.
It is not clear why he targeted the jury. It has to be noted that the 11-member jury was headed by veteran filmmaker Priyadarshan.
Before Murugadoss officially rebuked the jury, a lot of discussion happened on social media especially over the Best Actor award. Akshay Kumar was adjudged the Best Actor for his performance in ‘Rustom’. It is known that Priyadarshan has directed Akshay in several films and he shares very personal bond with the actor.
Moreover, a special jury award was given to Mohanlal, who is the favorite actor of Priyadarshan. The duo have worked together in many films, including the latest ‘Kanupapa’ (Oppam in Malayalam).
