Twitter users die laughing on Katrina Kaif being chosen for Smita Patil Award


The news of Katrina Kaif getting the prestigious Smita Patil Memorial Award has left the social media users utterly shocked with many venting their shock and frustration on the microblogging site Twitter.

This was after the Priyadarshni Academy Global Award decided to choose Katrina for the award, which is usually given to actors for being an outstanding individual who has shown excellence for her work in films.

The previous recipients of this award, according to NTV, has included Tanvi Azmi, Sridevi and Manisha Koirala, Urmila Matondkar, Tabu, Vidya Balan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra.

The online users have been shocked primarily because of questionable acting skills of Katrina, who’s had a number of hits to her credit but has often been criticised for being a mediocre actor.

Her latest release Baar Baar Dekho has failed to enthuse even her hardcore fans to visit the theatres.

The Priyadarshni Academy, according to Times of India, is an NGO engaged in socio-cultural and education activities and has been holding the awards event since 1984.
