‘I don’t consider, care or believe in other popular awards’


Vishal Bhardwaj is taking a trip to heaven as his film ‘Haider’ has bagged five National Awards. The filmmaker said that he doesn’t consider any other award than the National Award. “Award excitement is only for the National Award. I don’t consider or care in other popular awards. I only care for the National Award. I have never gone for any popular awards this year and will not go in future,” said Vishal. While ‘Haider’, shot in Kashmir which is known as the heaven on earth, has bagged so much honor, its lead actor Shahid Kapoor did not win an award for the same. “Shahid is a very talented actor. I am feeling a bit bad because it was indeed National Award winning performance,” said Vishal.
