Akshay Kumar is always at his diplomatic best so, it’s rare to see him let his guard down only once in a while. The hunk who is running from pillar to post promoting Housefull 3 was asked about Baby and why it didn’t win any awards. Akshay who’s generally his non committal self was a bit ticked by the question as he replied candidly, “The reality of the awards is that you have to perform at the function in half the money, that’s how you win an award.” Is he also referring to his confession on how he tried buying an award and his acts across the event nights?
No, Akshay doesn’t stop there. He stresses that if a star consents to perform at a function in half the cost and they will get an award! But the actor had a very different opinion about the National Awards. He said, “National Awards are credible because they see your work carefully and then they let you know if they like it.” He added, “If Baby was not nominated for the National Awards then it must not be that great.”
