New Delhi: Indian filmmaker AR Murugadoss on Friday took to Twitter to express his disappointment over the recently announced 64th National Awards. The 42-year-old director alleged bias and stated that 'influence & partiality' of people in the jury can be sensed.
"#NationalAwards Can clearly witness the influence & partiality of people in jury, it's biased," he posted on the social media.
The whole debate began when Akshay Kumar won the 'Best Actor' award for his performance in 'Rustom'. It was being said that there were several other candidates who deserved the honour more than him.
