Things which are loud and clear:
We can clearly see and witness that award functions now a days are not that authentic and justified as it was a long way back. It totally depends on commercial aspect and television rating points only. When they can ignore the performance of Salman Khan in Bajrangi Bhaijaan or the films like Zor laga ke haisha or hottest future aspect of Bollywood Varun Dhawan then no one will deny that these awards are merely a celebration ceremonies rather than some authentic and justified award system.
Then awarding Rishi Kapoor for life time achievement award is doing injustice to the likes of Dharmendra, Shasi Kapoor, Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar and Nargis who are not yet awarded in this category by Screen awards.
