Bollywood award functions are something that have maintained to grab headlines now and then. When we talk about the controversies of the award functions how can we forget about the time when filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker got angry when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan did not win an award for her role in Jodhaa Akbar. For the uninitiated, Jodhaa Akbar was released in 2008 and was co-written, produced and directed by Ashutosh Gowariker. Aishwarya had portrayed the role of Jodhaa Bai in the film whereas Hrithik Roshan had played the role of the Mughal Emperor Jalal-ud-din Muhammad Akbar. 

The film was a critical and commercial success. Ashutosh had won an award for the Best Director at an award show but instead of Aishwarya, Priyanka Chopra had grabbed the award for the Best Actress on the same award show. PeeCee had won an award for the Best Actress for Fashion and Dostana. While receiving her awrad, Priyanka had said in her speech that she was very happy to be nominated for Fashion and Dostana among the likes of the beautiful Aishwarya Rai and the talented Kajol. 

The next award was given to Asutosh for Best Director for Jodhaa Akbar. While receiving the award he said that he loves Priyanka but he doesn't know how did she get an award for Best Actress when Aishwarya was also nominated in the same category for Jodhaa Akbar. He further said that maybe it was because PeeCee is very hard-working and Aishwarya is a natural. Audiences were stunned with Asutosh Gowariker's this speech. He continued saying that Jaya Bachchan was also asking him the same thing. 

Our Desi girl was hurt by the filmmaker's this gesture but kept it to her and did not speak about it at that time though she shared her feelings with her close friends and family. 

Asutosh has worked with Priyanka in the 2009 film What's Your Rashee.

I definitely agree with Ashutosh. Aish deserved the Best Actress award for Jodha Akbar. (and the true Fashion standout was Kangana only)

Aishwarya should have been given the best actress award for her mind blowing exceptional performances in Dhai Akshar Prem Ke, Albela, Shabd, Aao Ab Laut Chalein, Yeh Kiya Ho Raha Hai, Kyun Ho Gaya Na and other trash that she has acted in throughout her illustrious career.

Priyanka and award? What for? Being a part of the most annoying couple on earth?

Fashion was dominated by Kangana... Anyone with a knowledge on films would know that Aishwarya was better than Priyanka's boring performance in Fashion & Dostana.

PC is now so washed up in hollywood, so who cares

100% he was right. PC's 'acting' is nothing compared to Aishwarya. Hands down. Oh well, now what to do? Can she give it back?

Aishwarya is good.but PC was played role in fashion movie no one can play like PeeeCeeee

Priyanka is a better actress than Aish. But in Jodha Akbar Aish was definitely far better than Priyanka. It was snatched out from Aish who genuinely deserved the award.

PC got the national award for fashion, it is a explanation it itself that who was more deserving. Aishwarya looked beautiful as Jodha, she did nothing extraordinary in the film.

Aish is plastic, PC is versatile. Fashion was Awsome ..... ‘Barfi’ was superlative .... another level ..... just to remind you about PC’s acting abilities!

LOL. The Irony when you call others as plastic, but not Priyanka.

Priyanka lived the characters in both the movies,she looked like a model n diva but Aishwarya didnt look like Jodha at all...characters have to be the skin of the person..

Aishwarya is a great actress and did an amazing job in that film. She definitely should have won.

Aishwarya an award? For what? For being part of the most annoying and weird mom-daughter duo?

Aishwarya is beautiful...but priyanka acting in fashion is the best..

Aishwarya is beautiful...but priyanka acting in fashion is the best..

PC won all major awards that year including National Award. She deserved it.

Priyanka Chopra was phenomenal in Fashion. Anyone who have knowledge about films can say her performance was better than Aishwarya. Jodhaa Akbar was dominated by Hrithik.

Aishwarya is talentless compared to Priyanka who is a talented and versatile actres.

Aishwarya is talentless compared to Priyanka who is really talented and versatile.

Right so....aishwarya was just boring and awful...pc deserved the award... and of course jaya bachchan will speak in favour of her daughter -in 'law (at least in those years...lol) and ashutosh for his heroine...
