It came to us as a shocker too! Urvashi Rautela winning Dada Saheb Phalke Excellence Award. But, for what? Well, it’s for an item song.
Yes, the former International pageant winner Urvashi Rautela, was recently awarded the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke Excellence Award under the 'Best Promising Performer' category for her special song, Saara Zamaana from Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam starrer, Kaabil.
Urvashi Rautela, who made her Bollywood debut with 2013 movie Singh Saab The Great, was ecstatic about the news and took to her Instagram handle to post a series of pictures and a video.
But what we observed was – one, she was trolled heavily and two, the troll comments on the pictures were disappearing very quickly! PR team on the go, we must say!
Here are some comments we got hold of but they are not there anymore in the comments section.
Urvashi, while talking to a section of media about her victory said, “This is a huge honour for me. I never expected this award to come my way. It was an honour receiving this award with the likes of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Hema Malini on the dais. This is a huge achievement for me. I am truly humbled.”
