Renowned Bollywood actress Sharmila Tagore was bestowed with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the current Jaipur International Film Festival (JIFF) which was inaugurated by dream girl, Hema Malini. The 5th edition of JIFF that started yesterday would run until the 3rd of Feb and during this 5 day long festival we may see several known celebrities being honored for their contribution to the industry.


Sharmila Tagore thanked the panel of judges present at the fifth edition of JIFF for giving her such an honor. She also seemed glad about the way Rajasthan has been associated with the film industry. “Forts, palaces and sand dunes of Rajasthan are always been a grandeurs of the Indian cinema”, she said.


Sharmila Tagore is known to be one of the finest actresses of the Indian film industry and the honor given to her is indeed well deserved. However, if sources are to be believed, the jury at JIFF had earlier considered giving this award to actress Nagma however they later opted for Sharmila. It is being said that this change in the jury’s decision was made at the last moment and left Nagma shocked and annoyed. Following this, Nagma lent her anger out on a social networking site. “Surprised and disgruntled with the way the jaipur international festival operates, few months since they confirmed my life time achievement award with me and hv requested me to accept it as it was decided by their Jury, bv their emails for the same. now they suddenly decide on last min to gv it to sharmila tagore. rigged! I guess one award attracts the others! Here's wishing sharmilaji congratulations for the same”, read her update on the site.


JIFF director, Hanuman Chaudhary on the other hand said that, “We did send her an invite but she did not respond to the invite properly. We thought she is not interested in the award so we scrapped her name”.
