Actress has said she felt sad when she didn’t receive a nomination at the award ceremonies for her performance in the 2007 film Bhool Bhulaiyaa.
Vidya spoke about it at the announcement of nominations for the first edition of the Critic’s Choice Film Awards, initiated by the Film Critics Guild and Motion Content Group here on Tuesday. In Bhool Bhulaiyaa, Vidya plays the role of a woman haunted by a ghost and her effortless transition from Avni to Manjulika was praiseworthy.
Asked if she has ever felt sad about not receiving a nomination at award ceremonies, she said: “I remember I wasn’t nominated for my performance in Bhool Bhulaiyaa at the award ceremonies. At that time, I really felt sad because everybody was saying that I had performed really well in the film, but no one nominated me for that film. I remember I was bit shocked after that but I think it’s a part of life.”
Vidya has received several awards, including a National Film Award, as well as multiple Filmfare Awards, Screen Awards, IIFA Awards, and also accolades from the Producers Guild and Zee Cine Awards in her 14 year-long film career.
Sharing her thoughts on award ceremonies, she said: “I have received many film awards in my career, so I am really happy about it. I think as an industry, we should appreciate each other’s achievements. Sometimes you win and sometimes someone else wins the award, but you shouldn’t take it so seriously that you should feel a grudge about it.”
