Last night 65th Filmfare Awards took place in Assam. Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy won mostly all the major awards including the Best Lyrics award for the song Apna Time Aayega.

Well, this made lyricist Manoj Muntashir quite upset and he took to Instagram to announce that now he won’t be attending any award functions. In a note, he wrote, “Dear Awards… Even if I try all my life.. I won’t be able to write a better song than #TeriMitti, a better line than.. ‘Tu Kahti Thee Tera Chaand Hoon Main Aur Chaand Hamesha Rahta hai’. You failed to honor the words which made millions of Indians cry and care for their motherland. It would be a great disrespect to my art if I still continue caring for you. So here I bid you a final good bye. I officially announce – I won’t attend any award show till I breathe my last. Alvida.”

Gully Boy winning multiple awards at Filmfare Awards 2020 has not gone down well with many people on social media. A lot of people feel that Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt didn’t deserve the awards, and Shahid Kapoor and Hrithik Roshan should have won an award for their respective performance in Kabir Singh and Super 30.

We wonder if this time Filmfare lost its credibility.
