Award shows today mostly are all a carefully worked out PR exercise. All the dealings regarding the winners happen backdoor with the most interested star backed by a strong PR network team winning the award. It must be a mutually beneficial thing for the star in question and the award show. So, keep that in mind and check out the Filmfare Awards 2017 nominees for Best Actor below.
1. Allu Arjun – Sarrainodu
2. Jr NTR – Nannaku Prematho
3. Nani – Gentleman
4. Nagarjuna – Oopiri
5. Naga Chaitanya – Premam
6. Ram Charan – Dhruva
Among the nominees above, if the Filmfare Awards were to be genuine, we know which star would be getting. It would be none other than Akkineni Nagarjuna for his wheel bound act in Oopiri. But giving him the award wouldn’t get the required mileage for the awards. Well, that’s how they think. It was the reason why Allu Arjun won for Racegurram when Nagarjuna was nominated for classic Manam.
Getting back to where we began again, and looking at the nominees there are only two actors who fit the criteria for winning the award. They are Jr NTR and Allu Arjun. One could guess the winner based on whom among the two stars attend the awards show, later in the night. The chances are bright for Tarak, and if he wins, it would be his first Filmfare after almost a decade. Jr NTR last won it for Yamadonga. Will it be his night again or Allu Arjun keep up the excellent PR work, what with DJ arriving in few days?
Stay tuned to this page as we will update the winner later tonight.
Update: NTR has won the best actor award for Nannaku Prematho
