Best Actor National Film Award To Suriya Is Surrounded In Controversy As His Manager Was A Part Of Jury!

The most accolades, including Best Actor, Best Feature Film, Best Actress, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Music Direction – Score, went to Suriya’s Soorarai Pottru in the recently announced 68th National Film Awards for movies produced in 2020.

Following the National Film Awards announcement, journalist and critic Namrata Joshi pointed out the “clash of interest” on Twitter.

She revealed the names of the people who served on the jury that selected the winners. S Thangadurai’s name was on the list of people.

In the second picture, she shared a screenshot of S Thangadurai’s Twitter account where his bio read that he is a manager of a number of South Indian film celebs like Shankar, Vishnu Vishal, Tamannaah, Kajal Aggarwal & Suriya and his wife Jyothika.

Joshi tweeted, “This has been in circulation since the national film awards were announced. Was wondering which mainstream film journalist/publication would question this? Clash of interest or not? Doesn’t this raise doubts about the process? Predominance of awards for one film in particular?”

She further tweeted, “At least we question Bollywood and whip it and rip it apart regularly and most so recently for it’s so called “spinelessness” which has been mauled to nothing anyhow. Radio silence on this! Only a YouTube reviewer so far am told!”
