After news of Priyanka Chopra receiving Dadasabeb Phalke award for being an International Icon, another bollywood actor will be recipient of the coveted honor. This time around it will be Tiger Shroff, who will receive the award for having the ‘best Physique in Bollywood’.
The Best Physique category was just recently added to the list of categories for the award. Sources say that the move was aimed at promoting health consciousness amongst the youth. “Some other names in the race were that of Hrithik Roshan and Vidyut Jamwal. But Tiger clearly managed to impress the jury with not just his muscular torso but also his flexibility. His dedication to fitness is something the youth can get inspired with,” said a source close to the development.
Though Tiger was unavailable for comment, his father Jackie Shroff was ecstatic and in his characteristic style said, “Bhidu, he deserves it.”
The award will be presented in an ceremony which will be held next month and is expected to be attended by A-listers from the industry.
With Priyanka and Tiger both being honored, other bollywood actors are now hopeful that they too will someday lay their hands on one. The Awards Committee which has eminent names such as Johhny Lever, Pahlaj Nihalani and Mithun Chakraborthy in its board of trustees is doing its best. “We are coming up with as many awards categories as possible so that no one gets left out. ‘Best Human Being’, ‘Best Actor in a TV commercial’, etc are some of the categories under consideration,” said a source from the committee.
Insiders say that online retailer Amazon has tied up with the awards committee to home deliver these awards for our super busy celebs so that they don’t have to attend awards ceremony anymore, but this piece of news has not been confirmed yet.
