At a recent award, a special category was created for the actress, to make up for the Best Actress award she lost to Vidya
The recently held Star Screen Awards created a special category for Katrina Kaif. The actress was to perform for the awards but it wasn't live. It was for the telecast only. And it was to be recorded after the ceremony ended.
Says a source, "When Katrina came to the venue, she learnt that Kareena Kapoor was getting the Best Actress award (Popular) for 3 Idiots. Although she was nominated for Best Actress for her performance in New York (Critics' Choice), Vidya beat her to it for Paa. It is learnt that she was miffed at being left out because, after all, she had the most hits in 2009."
For Kat only
Finally, the organisers (the Morani brothers) and the publishing house behind the award decided to give her an award. Word is, that they decided to create a special category for her -- the best entertainer of the year -- and was presented the award before her act. When the award was announced, she came out of her van, accepted it and returned to her van. She didn't sit in with the rest of the starry guests that evening."
Mohommed Morani says, "I have no idea what happened. I was there to only coordinate Katrina's performance. Screen can best answer this question."
Katrina Kaif remained unavailable for comment.
Sandeep Khosla of Screen says, "It's true we created an award for Katrina but this was decided by the Screen jury. We had a special award to Katrina her for the three hits -- New York, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, De Dana Dan -- that she had last year and the jury thought she deserved it. Katrina didn't insist or ask for any award. Nor did she throw any tantrums. She came and performed according to her commitment."
