Amitabh Bachchan hurt by IIFA awards in Sri Lanka: Times of India

[TamilNet, Thursday, 20 January 2011, 09:19 GMT]
Amitabh Bachchan’s recent exclusion from the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) was because he was hurt by the IIFA decision to hold awards last year in Sri Lanka, Times of India said Thursday. Amitabh was the founder-initiator of the IIFA. Without taking Bachchan's opinion, they not only held the event in Sri Lanka but also signed up Salman Khan to host it. These awards were Bachchan's baby, and hence he was terribly hurt, Times of India said. At the height of arrogance, establishments in strategic partnership abuse art and peoples media, but the boomerang will come when the creative world rises against those who were responsible for it, commented a Tamil writer in Colombo, who was also hurt not only by the Indian show but also by the so-called international writers meets in the island held to boost the image of the genocidal regime.

South Indian Film Chamber boycotted the 2010 IIFA awards in Colombo. Amitabh Bachchan, his son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya along with Shah Rukh Khan and many others also stayed away from the event.
