Katrina Kaif is all set to receive Smita Patil memorial award on September 19, apparently for her outstanding contribution in Hindi cinema and it is really not funny. Now one can ask what all she has contributed to the Bollywood industry other than being Chameli and Sheela?
Despite of the fact, that there are lot of other deserving actresses such as Kalki Koechlin, Radhika Apte, Konkana Sen Sharma, to name a few, Priyadarshani Acadmey has picked her and her selection is not only an insult for Patil but for also mocks all the previous actresses who have received it.
Smita Patil was one of the finest actresses of television and theatre. She appeared in over 80 films in a career that just spanned over a decade. During her career she received two National Awards and a Filmfare award. She had also received Padma Shri.
On the other hand, Katrina is 30 films old in this industry and she has also made a name for herself in the industry but she cannot be felicitated with Smita Patil award and this is because of vast dissimilarity between the two actors.
Smita Patil captured the imagination of an entire generation; she became the first lady to play working woman onscreen. She played working woman in Arth, a prostitute in Mandi , a spice maker in Mirch Masala. She was used to blow off socks of people from her sharp acting skills.
Katrina is still not among the finest actors, in her career of 13 years she has learned few good dance moves, she has killer abs to show but her caliber as an actor can never reach to the level of Smita Patil, who died untimely at the age of 31 and Bollywood had lost a legendary actor.
This news has taken Bollywood by storm and twitter burst out of laughing. Here are few tweets:
Katrina Kaif receiving Smita Patil Memorial Award is same as Sajid Khan getting an Oscar
