Absolutely correct! I have faced similar ‘negotiations’ where they have wanted me to perform free of charge and bag the award... I told them to F*** Off- I will never ‘buy’ an award!! My dignity & self respect is all that I will take into my grave- nothing else!! https://t.co/TDmt7Hx6m5— Adnan Sami (@AdnanSamiLive) July 26, 2020
Since Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, filmmaker Shekhar Kapur has been quite vocal about the industry's nepotistic nature and double standard. His death has not only re-ignited nepotism debate but is also seeing many people coming out in the open to talk about industry’s partial behaviour. Earlier, Shekhar Kapur had announced that whenever SSR’s Paani will be made it will be dedicated to him. However, he had clearly stated that it will be made with those who will walk in with humility, not with arrogance.”, clearly hinting at his fallout with Aditya Chopra.
Now, Shekhar Kapur has taken a dig at Bollywood Awards. In his Tweet, the filmmaker revealed that the award is not an appreciation of creativity, but a negotiation. And guess what? Renowned singer Adnan Sami is in agreement with him. Sharing a link, Shekhar Kapur wrote, “Bollywood film awards are not an appreciation of creativity, but a negotiation. Will you dance for me on stage if I give you an award? Terrific fearless expose by a journalist once in charge. Must read.”
Replying to the filmmaker, Sami wrote that once he was asked to perform for free but he brushed them off. Agreeing with the filmmaker, Adnan wrote, “Absolutely correct! I have faced similar ‘negotiations’ where they have wanted me to perform free of charge and bag the award... I told them to F*** Off- I will never ‘buy’ an award!! My dignity & self-respect is all that I will take into my grave- nothing else!!”
Earlier, reacting to AR Rahman’s, ‘there’s a gang spreading rumours about me’ statement, the Shekhar had said, “You know what your problem is @arrahman? You went and got #Oscars . An Oscar is the kiss of death in Bollywood. It proves you have more talent than Bollywood can handle ..”
