A lot has been written and said about the 'award wapsi' issue and the film industry has mixed reactions about it.
While Dibakar Banerjee and other filmmakers returned their National awards, Kamal Haasan and Vidya Balan have refused to return theirs.
BJP leader Hema Malini feels the honour should not be given back.
"It’s an honour given to you and shouldn’t be given back," she says. "Why should you return it?”
Anupam Kher is set to lead a march to Rashtrapati Bhavan on Saturday, November 7, to protest against the award wapsi issue, and Hema Malini fully supports him.
Today, Kundan Shah of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron fame also returned his award.
If reports are to be believed, 23 filmmakers will return their awards.
