Naseeruddin Shah says he uses his Filmfare trophies as washroom door handles, calls awards a 'result of lobbying'


Naseeruddin Shah never shies away from speaking his mind. In a recent interview, the veteran actor spoke about award ceremonies in the Hindi film industry and why he prefers to stay away from them. Mr Shah revealed he uses his Filmfare awards as door handles at his farmhouse. 

In the interview, Mr Shah said, "Any actor who has put their life and effort into portraying a role is a good actor. If you just pick one person from the lot and say that ‘this is the best actor of the year’, how’s it fair? I am not proud of those awards. I did not even go collect the last two awards I received. So, when I built a farmhouse, I decided to put these awards there. Whoever goes to the washroom will get two awards each as the handles are made of the Filmfare awards."

He added, "I don’t find any value in these trophies. I was happy when I received the initial ones. But then, trophies started piling up around me. Sooner or later, I understood that these awards are a result of lobbying."

Naseeruddin Shah is currently seen in the web series, Taj: Reign Of Revenge.
