Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh was very disappointed to find out that his critically-acclaimed film ‘Lootera’ which also saw Sonakshi Sinha pitch in a brilliant performance was no where to be seen in the nominations at most of the award shows!
Vikramaditya Motwane’s period drama ‘Lootera’, based on author O Henry’s 1907 short story The Last Leaf, had received a mixed response after its release.
Ranveer Singh was highly appreciated for his performance in the movie, and hence was quite disappointed that it failed to get nominated for this year’s movie awards.
“I don’t think ‘Lootera’ is a failure. The producers earned money and it is a great film. If ‘Lootera’ was the best reviewed film of the year, then where is the recognition. It is a technically superior film of all the films released last year. I think Vikramaditya Motwane deserved nomination for direction,” Ranveer said.
“Such a technically superior film missing from nominations is very surprising. So, yes it is disappointing. I am disappointed for the team,” he said.
However, he is happy that his co-star Sonakshi was nominated in the Best Actress category for the Screen awards.
“Sonakshi deserves to get a nomination. For me, ‘Lootera’ was higher in terms of performance than ‘Ram Leela’. I can’t talk about whether I deserve a nomination or not. ‘Ram Leela’ was easy in comparison to ‘Lootera’ as the latter was challenging,” Ranveer said.
