Katrina Kaif is one the most hardworking actresses in the Bollywood Industry. Though, she didn’t win any big Bollywood awards in her career of over 13 years but still her movies do wonder at the Box-Office cash counters. At latest, when she was bestowed with ‘Smita Patil Memorial Award‘, it really shocked certain sections of Bollywood fans. As they were not expecting that this award will be given to Katrina Kaif.
To give you a more glimpse about this award, let me tell you about late actress Smita Patil. She has worked in both parallel cinema and mainstream movies for over 12 years, before dying of childbirth complications. In this brief career, she won two national awards and a Filmfare awards. She gave birth to the only child Prateik Babbar, who is now a Bollywood actor.
So this award dedicated to Smita Patil was instituted to honour and promote Indian actors’ work in films. The previous holders of this award were Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, and Tabu. As you have read that, this award has given to some of the senior actresses in Bollywood. In comparison to that, Katrina is still not that worthy enough for the award. Well, that’s the reason why certain sections of Bollywood fans didn’t like the award being given to Katrina Kaif.
When BollywoodLife approached to Prateik Babbar, this is what he said, â€œIt’s a good news, I have heard she is a hardworking actress.â€
It seems he didn’t want to spark the fume into a burning fire!
