Abhishek Bachchan slams down actors who dont believe in awards 

In our country, film awards are often criticised for being bogus and phony. Several actors and filmmakers have openly expressed their displeasure towards these awards and have stated that they simply do not care about them. However, actor Abhishek seems to have a different school of thought. He believes that awards have a great significance in an actor's life and if someone says they don't care about awards, it must be because they do not get awards.

In a conversation with Radio Host Siddharth Kannan, Abhishek said, "Koi bhi yeh bole ki main award mein nahi maanta hoon...kyunki aapko award mili nahi hai. Simple si baat hai. Dekhiye, hum sab kalakaar hai, kalakaar ko jab nawaza jaaye, jab unki waah-waahi ho (If someone says, ‘I don’t believe in awards’, it is because they didn’t get one. It’s simple. We are artists, if we are praised), that is greater than any award for anybody."

He further added, "We work a lot for appreciation. Yes, this is our business, we have to run our houses, there is a financial side to it, absolutely. But you praise an actor and he will be happy. We work for praise, that is the function of the profession. Award is the ultimate praise na? Everybody loves awards. If you didn’t get an award, you are not popular enough or your performance wasn’t good enough, that’s the way I look at it. Agar hum woh conspiracy theory mein ghuse na, phir toh anek hai (If we get into conspiracy theories, there are many). If you are good enough, it will come to you, simple as that."
