Bangalore: Barfi, which is already on its way to the Oscar, has bagged the prestigious Anu Malik Award for “Inspirational Work”.
On being contacted by the News Bureau, Anurag Basu gloated, “I was sick and tired of people confusing me with the other Anurag . In fact I had to check with them twice to confirm that they wanted to give this to Anurag “Basu” and Not “Kashyap”. Thanks to Anu ji who himself is an inspired err.. an inspirational person from the Film Fraternity for this recognition.”
Anu Malik was all Praise for Anurag and his music director who he feels reminds him of His younger days: “Pritam is such a genius . 99% inspiration 1% perspiration. I feel just like how Bradman must have felt on seeing Sachin bat the first time.”
Priyanka Chopra ranked this as her best performance after her Miss World Final where she brought Mother Theresa to Life on stage.
Soojith Sircar who is still upset over Vicky Donor not making the cut remarked: “Though I am very happy for Anurag, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (which gives away the oscars) should be conducting a competition to find out which Frame of this movie is not inspired.”
On being quizzed about the recent developments , Ranbir Kapoor took in a deep breath and just muttered “Barfiiiiii…”. Maybe he wants to save his Best act for the Oscars!
