Amitabh Bachchan’s performance in Paa wins him national award for acting! :-)
It would have made plenty of sense if the award was for fancy dress.
Am sure the poor Big B himself is embarrassed to be caught up as the protagonist in this national joke.
I don’t know if i can i call it the national blunder of the decade? We have to wait for the completion of Commonwealth Games to know which is the greater /worse blunder.
But it beats me - what on earth were the jury thinking when they zeroed in on Bachchan’s performance in Paa for best actor award? Did they redefine the concept of ‘acting’ and exclude emoting with facial expression from the definition?
I think they owe an explanation to the nation about the criteria for this ridiculous ,howler of a choice.
