Star Screen Awards took Twitter by storm soon after its airing on New Year Eve. Twitterverse was in splits at the introduction of a new title, the Nothing To Hide Award, which was given to Kriti Sanon and Shahid Kapoor in the female and male categories respectively.
Among the many users left scratching their heads over the title, questioning, “What does that even mean?”. It was reported that the award was introduced for celebrities who share details about their career and private lives ‘honestly’ with fans on social media.
Now, Actress Kriti Sanon have chosen up to speak about the same. Kriti told a leading daily that it was a tag line of one of the sponsors of the award show.
“As long as I am not asking someone to give me an award, it [the win] is fine. If I am given an award, I would be humble enough to accept it.” The now infamous title, she says, was in fact a tag line of one of the sponsors of the show. “This award connects me with my fans,” she rebuts, adding, “I don’t think I needed to respond to this, but a lot was written about the win. Besides, nowadays, there are different awards being handed out, including one called a ‘Youth Icon’. So, I don’t see why this is surprising.” She told Mid-Day.
On the work front, Sanon is set to reunite with Raabta (2017) director Dinesh Vijan for a comedy that pairs her alongside Diljit Dosanjh for the first time.
