Sonu Sood at Stardust Awards 2015
Sonu Sood at Stardust Awards 2015

There is no doubt that Sonu Sood is one of the most talented actors of Indian cinema, but the Best Actor in a Negative Role award for his performance in "Entertainment" has raised serious doubts on the credibility of Colors Stardust Awards 2015.

Actors Sonu Sood, Riteish Deshmukh, KK Menon, Amol Gupte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui were nominated for Stardust Awards 2014 in the category of Best actor in a Negative Role for their performances in the films "Entertainment", "Ek Villain", "Haider", "Singham Returns" and "Kick" respectively.

Compared to Sonu Sood's acting in "Entertainment", Riteish and KK had done better jobs in "Ek Villain" and "Haider" respectively. Keeping this in mind, many viewers expected either of the two to walk away with the Best actor in a Negative Role award.

However, when Sonu Sood grabbed the award for "Entertainment", many viewers were shocked and some of them took to Twitter to vent out their anger and disappointment against the organisers of Colors Stardust Awards 2015. 

Here are some opinions posted by viewers on Twitter:

Dear stardust awards.... For best villain you think Sonu sood for entertainment was better than ritesh Deshmukh from ek villain and from kk Menon in haider than u should seriously rethink of your claim to be most genuine award show... Highly disappointed
