The Filmfare nominations list has hit the social media and names of the nominees have raised many eyebrows among the audience and in the B-Town as well. Any guesses on what is so different about the nominations list this year. No? Lemme tell you. 

We all are familiar about how badly Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil(ADHM) landed in trouble during its release, as the Pakistani actor Fawad Khan was a part of the film, ADHM had to face the outrage. Because Maharashtra Navnirman Sena ( MNS) enacted a ban on all the Pakistani Artists working for Indian Film Industry. This decision by MNS was the result of Uri terror attacks that took place in September last year.

Coming back to the very fresh controversy that is slowly acquiring minds, I would like to warn you about how 62nd Filmfare Awards 2017, may face the rage. So all the Bollywood buffs out there, this piece of information is surely for you.

The following is the list of nominations this year. Zoom in to read.

If sources are to believed, a leading filmmaker said he will neither attend nor accept any awards at a function where Pakistani artists are welcomed. He quoted "It's a matter of self-respect. We are not welcome in Pakistan. They brutally kill and maim our soldiers. And we behave as if our cinema can't do without their artistes," (via:Bollywoodlife.com)
