So, let us go through some of the tweets by them, related to this issue

The sense of self entitlement some of these newcomer actors have is beyond imagination. If only they were half as talented.

It’s amazing , you can’t share your thoughts at all , then you become the anatagonist you guys run a business on things actors say

It’s not entitlement it’s an opinion just like how your magazine always has one

– Harshvardhan Kapoor (@HarshKapoor_) January 19, 2017

Don’t feel entitled to any award,I’m questioning the principle of who is a newcomer,have zero problems losing to a genuine newcomer

He has also told Indian Express in an interview that “I think debutant awards should be for people who are relatively new to films. I have done less work. Otherwise, it is like saying I have done 100 English films and now I am doing a Hindi film so I am a debutant. So if Leonardo Di Caprio wins an Oscar and then comes to do a Bollywood movie, he is a debutant which is not something I agree with.”

The Filmfare Awards were widely criticised this year for leaving Akshay Kumar, star of Rustom and Airlift, off the Best Actor nominee list but including Salman Khan’s performance in Sultan. The award was won by Aamir Khan, whose work in Dangal has been hailed as his finest so far.

Harshvardhan Kapoor is working on Bhavesh Joshi, scheduled to release this year.
