No One from Bollywood Deserves Padma Award?

Film director, Vivek Agnihotri expressed his disappointment about the lack of representation of Bollywood at the recent Padma Awards, as Bollywood had no recipients for the awards this year. The supposed reason is that nothing significant occurred in the industry.

So, was there no single deserving recipient from Bollywood? Definitely, a lot has been said about the industry and the past events revolving Sushant Singh Rajput’s demise have caused a stir, but that shouldn’t affect the years of hard work of other prominent personalities. We lost a few gems last year and we haven’t been enough grateful for their contribution towards industry. For example, the late Rishi Kapoor and Saroj Khan had entertained this country for years and it’s time to acknowledge their efforts.

Who, according to you, should be considered for the next Padma awards?
