When asked about the dissatisfaction of certain fans about their favorite stars not being part of the nominations Mrs. Brinda Pasad Adusumilli said “We tried to adopt a transparent mechanism of selection of nominations based on various parameters like Artists Performance, Movie Success, Critical Acclaim, Return of Investment etc. No two persons have similar taste and we tried to come to common consensus through our surveys as well as committee opinion but in the process we might not be able to satisfy every one and we are prepared for some kind of criticism. The number of votes polled in less than 48 hours show how popular SIIMA is and I thank every movie lover across the globe for making SIIMA the most popular awards show”
#SIIMA2016 is happening at SUNTEC CONVENTION in SINGAPORE on 30th June and 1st July.
