Mumbai: The 18th Annual Screen Awards had a big shocker in store for all Sallu fans. The 2011 ‘hit machine’ Salman Khan was not nominated in any of the categories, including that of the ‘Best Actor’ – a domain that belonged strictly to him in the year gone by.
Amrita Rao attending the event said, “Salman Khan is such a big superstar, and he doesn’t need a nomination to prove it.”
Dia Mirza said, “People who get nominated treasure that nomination and it means a lot, having said that, I am sure there will be enough award shows who will nominate him and he will win enough.”
Bigg Boss 5 contestant Siddharth Bhardwaj said, “I am one of the biggest fans of Salman Khan and it’s disappointing that he has not been nominated, but I’m sure had he been nominated, he would have won an award.”
After giving 2011 two of the biggest blockbuster in ‘Ready’ and ‘Bodyguard’, Salman Khan was left without any popular award.
So much so that his name didn’t even feature in the nomination list.
Call it the streak of bad luck, but for his diehard fans the dabangg Khan will always be most ‘wanted’.
