Rajkummar Rao was easily one of the most appreciated actors in 2017. Not just he won the heart of classes with his performances, his films like Bareilly Ki Barfi and Newton proved to be Box Office hits.
But when it comes to awards, actors like him are always ignored. Filmfare announced its most anticipated nomination list for the upcoming award ceremony today. There were huge expectations from Rao but sadly, Filmfare didn’t nominate him in the category of best actors. Here’s the list of actors that they nominated-
Akshay Kumar – Toilet: Ek Prem Katha
Ayushmann Khurrana – Shubh Mangal Saavdhan
Hrithik Roshan – Kaabil
Irrfan Khan – Hindi Medium
Shah Rukh Khan – Raees
Varun Dhawan – Badrinath Ki Dulhania
It was unfortunate to see a great talent like Rajkummar Rao absent from the list. This really infuriated Tweeples who couldn’t think of the reason for ignoring him.
Angry Twitterati is therefore trolling Filmfare on the microblogging site right now. Have a look at some of the reactions-

You guys nominated Hrithik Roshan and Varun Dhawan for best lead actor but not Rajkumar Rao?????? You guys have once again proved that Bollywood awards shows are and scam. Filmfare has lost all its credibility. Shame!

Over the years when Aamir Khan,Ajay Devgan,Nawaz can get ignored them why you are surprised if Rajkumar name is missing?

That's no logic! In that case why not nominate Golmaal and its actors too in various categories. Nominating Badrinath, Varun And Alia and ignoring Newton, and performances of Rajkumar and Kangana just shows @jiteshpillaai is trying to please @karanjohar

Actually Rajkumar ONLY must be nominated for Best actor chategory and win it for his superlative performance for Trapped. He can Filmfare nominations be so foolish?

I really appreciate the nomination list of Filmfare for the best actor(male) but why isn't Rajkummar included.I havent seen either of his films but i have heard so much about his performances.This is kinda unfair

Do you think it is fair? What are your thoughts on it?
