Today Katrina Kaif was honoured with the prestigious “Smita Patil Memorial Award” for her great and an outstanding contribution towards bollywood by honourable Minister of Road Transport, Nitin Gadkari.
The actress was mocked and ridiculed widely over the social media for receiving this honour just because her acting talent diffrentiates her from Smita Patil. The actress has always be seen as someone who can dance well but cannot act. But the actress has set some benchmarks by her acting skills which are yet to be broken by anyone. Her recent performance in Baar Baar Dekho highlighted her plight when it comes to acting. But as she has been honoured by such a prestigious award means the lady has some spark in her.
The actress said inema has given her the purpose in her life and she has been truthful about it and promised to keep her sincerity towards her work intact.
Katrina Kaif was wearing a green and gold heavy embroidered dress for the occasion and she looked as ravishing as ever. Apart from this award, the actress has previously won over 21 awards including FHM World’s Sexiest Woman, Hello Hall of Fame Entertainer of the Year award and also the Rajiv Gandhi National Award, not to be confused with the National Award given by the Central government. So while there was an outrage against her name being considered for the award, there was actually no need for any such thing.
Katrina paid tribute to Smita Patil, after whom the award is name, by saying, “This award honours the memory of one of the greatest and accomplished actresses whose role served as an inspiration to the lives of millions of women. It is said that woman hold up half the sky but a woman like Smitaji showed us not even the sky is the limit.”
