Certain tweets can be extremely shocking as it can give you sleepless nights, not because it is a derogatory remark addressed to you but it is indeed a sham for the entire human race.
One such tweet from controversial baba Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan popularly known as Love Charger Baba took my breath away and left a lot of Twitteratis in a sorry state when he tweeted:
Good news 4 all of U! Honored wid Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Award for most popular Actor,Director&Writer. #MSGdedicatesAwardToGuruji

Facepalm indeed! Wondering whether this man with the capability of producing the most terrible films, music and fashion can win a Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation award? Well, the tweet is a straight answer and the pictures are a testimony to what really happened. Shocking? Well, it is and quite embarrassing too for the entire film fraternity.

Some of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan’s Quotes In an Interview After Receiving the Award
“The movie MSG 2 was based on a real incident. We saved lives of many tribes of Udaipur, Rajasthan”
“My next movie is almost ready. It is a huge movie. It’s like Avatar, full VFX. We’ll call it Online Gurukul because it is about the Vedas.”
“I have so many talents because God has gifted me. Not everyone can do this. In this movie, I am the art director and dialogue writer also.”
Manoj Bajpayee and Priyanka Chopra Too Have Been Honoured by the Same Foundation
Don’t be surprised when we tell you that the same foundation has also honoured Manoj Bajpayee and Priyanka Chopra this year besides choosing the godman for his horrendous films MSG and MSG-2.
While the entire film fraternity came forward and congratulated Bajpayee and also celebrated his success by wishing him on social networking sites, nobody talked anything about the foundation honouring Gurmeet Ram Rahim an award for his terrible movie.
This Award Has No Affiliation with the Original Dadasaheb Phalke Award
Though Bajpayee has been praised, there is hardly any support for the godman which isn’t surprising. However, it certainly makes us doubt the credibility of a film award function that has the name of the greatest personality in Indian cinema.
Well, this Dadasaheb Film Foundation Awards which has honoured the Godman and his films have no affiliation with the original Dadasaheb Phalke Award, which has been around for more than 6 decades now.
Eager to know the jury ? Well, the jury of this ‘Dadasaheb Phalke Film Foundation Awards 2016’ consists of film personalities like Anees Bazmee, Ismail Darbar, Anup Jalota, Udit Narayan, Saroj Khan, Kamlesh Panday and Runa Laila. The Advisory Panel includes – Imtiaz Hussain, Naqsh Lyallpuri, Bhargav Patel, Rumi Jaffrey and others.
Strangely, the foundation that bears the name of the thespian honours a powerhouse of talent like Manoj Bajpayee, but also keeps some unwanted VIPs happy like ‘The Messenger Of God’.
We are simply wondering whether it was a forced award – What do you think?
