Rajkumar Rao is inarguably one of the finest actors working in Bollywood right now. The year 2017 has been a very good year for the actor, as he gave back to back hits. He received lots of praise from critics and fans for his performance in films like Trapped, Bareilly Ki Barfi, and Newton.

Rajkumar Rao has won the appreciation from masses as well as classes. However, when it comes to awards, he gets ignored. The latest example of the same is Filmfare Awards. Filmfare Award is regarded as the most renowned award shows in Indian cinema.

Filmfare announced the nomination list for the upcoming award ceremony, which shocked everyone. People were expecting that Rao would get the maximum nomination, but it was not the case. Filmfare even ignored him in the category of best actors.

Nomination for Filmfare Best Actors:

Akshay Kumar: Toilet: Ek Prem Katha

Ayushmann Khurrana: Shubh Mangal Saavdhan

Hrithik Roshan: Kaabil

Irrfan Khan: Hindi Medium

Shah Rukh Khan: Raees

Varun Dhawan: Badrinath Ki Dulhania

It is really sad to see a fine talent like Rajkumar Rao was not on the list. It has not gone down well with Twitterati as well, who are simply unable to understand the meaning behind ignoring him. They trolled Filmfare left, right and center.
