SPECIAL SAJID KHAN LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD: Sajid Khan

This last category is presented to someone who has consistently and persistently delivered the worst projects and performances, and irony of all ironies is that it is being presented to Sajid Khan himself this time around.

Many nominations have gone on to prove that in an attempt to go commercial, Bollywood sometimes loses all common sense like Salman Khan’s Kick and Jai Hu. Year after year, Bollywood adaptations of Hollywood flicks is getting cringe worthy and exasperating, like the recent horde of horror flicks which were released. Original Content, even when it’s low-budget is lively and entertaining.
