‘Haters are gonna hate’ is probably an understatement over the recent uproar on Katrina Kaif winning the Smita Patil award for her contribution to Indian cinema. Known majorly for her girl-next-door roles, a recent jury announced that she has been selected for the prestigious Smita Patil award which represents acting and talent.
What followed was twitteratis expressing their anger over the kind of insult being targeted at the late Smita Patil who is considered as one of the most iconic performers of Indian cinema. Netizens unleashed their fury over this selection on social media and Katrina Kaif was being trolled as twitteratis continued to share quirky and sarcastic comments over the same. Here’s a collection of few tweets.
@SirJadejaaaa: Katrina Kaif To Be Awarded The Smita Patil Award For Contribution To Cinema. Only Acting She Ever Did Was Dating Salman To Enter Bollywood.
@jhunjhunwala: An award honors an idea. Giving Katrina the Smita Patil award is like giving creator of Food Panda app the Albert Einstein Medal in science. They are giving Katrina Kaif the Smita Patil Memorial award. Smita Patil must be turning over in her grave.
@thebobbydeoll: Katrina Kaif receiving Smita Patil Memorial Award is same as Sajid Khan getting an Oscar
@DOCTORATLARGE: Katrina Kaif getting the Smita Patil award is wonderful news. It has paved the way for Chetan Bhagat getting the Nobel Prize for Literature. While Katrina Kaif gets Smita Patil award, Vidya Balan gets Dengue. Both pieces of news are accurate reflections of the state of our country.
