Itsmajja.com concluded their first edition of Majja Digital Awards’ with a massive response from industry and viewers across. The nominations as well as the grand finale went LIVE on Facebook and was hosted by none other than actor Abhijeet Khandkekar. This is the first time that an award on has been conducted on such a large scale and I much say that they were fair and we awarded to the most deserving.
“When Sourin Dutta, the man behind this idea, wanted me to be a part of this esteemed project, I was very sure what I wanted to do with it. For me, the credibility of an award is a must, and that’s what I strived to achieve,” states Salil, who has been a part of creating these awards.
Salil has been a part of a lot of Bollywood as well as Television Awards, and he feels that except for the Nation Film Awards, none of the awards is respected.
“In the west, we have awards like Oscars, Golden Globes, Emmys, and many more, which are revered and have a lot of credibilities. Both actors as well the technicians respect these awards. However, back home, I do not see any such awards that the industry, on the whole, looks up to.” states Salil, with loads of disappointed.
Majja is just a year old, and this web portal boasts of more than a million followers on its social media pages like Facebook and Instagram. It also encourages young Maharashtrian talent by giving aspiring artists a unique platform to showcase their skills. Itsmajja.com’s movie reviews are appreciated across age groups.
Salil is hopeful that in the years to come, Majja will be a force to recon with and would be the frontrunner as far as the credibility of the awards is concerned. Yes, you cannot please everyone. Winners will be happy, while people who don’t, would have something or the other to say. All I know is that you cannot please everyone, as there would always be a difference of opinion.” sighs off Salil, who is very optimistic that the awards would create a mark for their own shortly.
