Award functions and their weird categories! Well, Bollywood fans rang in the new years by watching the Star Screen Awards on Sunday night and to say that they were left astonished with a new category that the awards’ committee had come up with wouldn’t be an understatement. Brace yourself, the award is titled, ‘Nothing To Hide’ Award. As absurd as that sounds, it’s true. And the recipients of this “one-of-a-kind award” were none other than Kriti Sanon and Shahid Kapoor. It seems, both of them received the “prestigious” award for being absolutely honest and candid about the upheavals in their career and personal lives apart from keeping their fans updated about everything via social media.
The awards’ function was recorded earlier this month. While Shahid couldn’t receive the award in person, Kriti looked beautiful in a black ensemble as she went on stage to accept the award. Both seemed legitimately proud of being the recipients of the awards. Shahid described his win as cool, while Kriti couldn’t stop expressing her gratitude for receiving the award. But, Twitter couldn’t digest the fact that they came up with a weird award category such as this and ,needless to say, had a field day slamming/trolling the star studded event.

It’s truly funny how awards’ function these days come up with the most obnoxious category of awards to give. Not just that, we’re equally appalled with the way actors have no qualms accepting awards that are obviously “so made up”. While Shahid Kapoor, who is best known for updating his Instagram almost daily, has got upto almost 12 million followers on the photo-sharing site, Kriti Sanon, on the other hand, has recorded just 9.4 million followers. Surprisingly, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone who are known to have a larger fan following on social media didn’t bag this award. Meanwhile, on the professional front, Kriti was last seen in Bareilly Ki Barfi while Shahid’s long awaited release is Padmavati, which is still awaiting a release date from the CBFC.
