Akshay Kumar rejects his Annual Star Screen Best Popular Actor award
Akshay Kumar has rejected the best popular actor award that he recived at the Nokia 15th Annual Star Screen Awards. However, Akshay was in a happy mood when he came with his wife to attend the award function. But later on when he was presented the Best Popular Actor award he refused to accept it saying that Aamir Khan had done much better than him in Ghajini and deserved it. Akshay said that he had watched Ghajini recently and he felt that Aamir Khan had done a lot better than him or any other Bollywood actor this year. He said that he believes that Aamir Khan should have won the award irrespective of the fact that he attends award functions or not.
Akshay Kumar said
It is Aamir Khan who deserves this award. I will request Aamir to accept this award instead of me
However, many people also think that the best actor award won by Hrithik Roshan although Aamir Khan and Akshay were nominated might have hurt him. But everybody appreciated this show of appreciation by Akshay Kumar. Akshay’s gesture was a bit weird but everybody believed that Aamir had done far better than anybody else and deserved to win the best actor award for Ghajini without any doubt.
