Bollywood awards rigged: Abhay Deol

Taking a dig at the numerous Bollywood awards, actor Abhay Deol said Saturday that most awards are either rigged or actors are paid for their presence.

‘Talk to any actor off the record and he will tell you, you either go because you are winning an award or because you are getting paid. Otherwise, you don’t go,’ Abhay said during the 43rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) here.

‘In that case, pay me and I’ll perform. If you tell me you are awarding talent, then no. It is to appease those you want to work with,’ he said candidly.

When his movie Dev D, rocked the theatres, Abhay was not nominated for any awards.

‘I was promoting Road, Movie at the Awards and no one wanted to talk about Road...’ I said, ‘It was a family fare...And I stick by that,’ Abhay said.
