Abhishek Bachchan Says Actors Who Claim Awards Don’t Matter Never Got One In The 1st Place

When people work hard, they tend to expect some kind of recognition and appreciation for their work. That is where awards come into play – recognising a person’s hard work and determination and lauding them for it. However, many celebrities have revealed that award functions work in very different ways than we expect. And hence, some have said that they don’t believe in awards.

Actor Abhishek Bachchan recently opened about this and in his opinion, those who say they don’t believe in awards tend not to get any awards in the first place.

Hindustan Times quoted him saying:

“If someone says, ‘I don’t believe in awards’, it is because they didn’t get one. It’s simple. We are artists. if we are praised, that is greater than any award.”

He went on to add that people crave appreciation and that in the acting business, people expect to get praised for good work. He further claimed that “everybody” loves awards.

“We work a lot for appreciation. Yes, this is our business, we have to run our houses, there is a financial side to it, absolutely. But you praise an actor and he will be happy. We work for praise, that is the function of the profession. The award is the ultimate praise, na? Everybody loves awards. If you didn’t get an award, you are not popular enough or your performance wasn’t good enough, that’s the way I look at it. Agar hum woh conspiracy theory mein ghuse na, phir toh anek hai. If you are good enough, it will come to you, simple as that.”

In the past, Saif Ali Khan has spoken about how the credibility of award functions has been compromised ever since it developed a more commercial aspect. Nowadays, people argue that many undeserving candidates receive awards and some of the highest recognitions in the country.
