Director Gurvinder Singh, whose internationally acclaimed Punjabi film “Chauthi Koot” has been honoured with a National Film Award, described ‘Baahubali’ as a totally crap film.
While speaking with the media, Singh alleged that regional cinema has been neglected this year in favour of “commercial films”.
“All the main awards have gone to commercial films. ‘Baahubali’, which is a totally crap film has got the Best Film award. I think it is a BJP award and not National Award,” Singh said.
“It’s a complete farce and all the art films have been neglected this time. The National Awards are mainly meant for regional cinema, but they have been completely neglected this time. Overall, all the awards have gone to Bollywood,” added Singh.
