Pleasing Katrina Kaif

How many best actor awards do we see given out at Oscars or Golden Globes? One each for both male and female actors. But the award functions in Bollywood, it seems, have their own standard by which they try to please all the actors who hold sway in the industry.

No surprise then that a special award category was created at the recently held Star Screen Awards just to honour Katrina Kaif.

Some of the awards given out during the evening did raise brows among the skeptics.

There’s no doubt that Amitabh Bachchan and Vidya Balan deserved to win the Best Actor awards, male and female respectively. Even Kareena Kapoor being given the Best Actress award in Popular Choice category could be understood. But what was the need of creating a new category (Entertainer of the Year) altogether?

The answer is simple. Katrina Kaif who had given the maximum number of hits last year could not be snubbed at the award function, particularly when she had agreed to perform during the event.

So Presto! A new category was created and Katrina given the trophy.

No wonder Aamir Khan stays away from popular award functions.
