Choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant is might upset with the awards committee for nominating her ‘dear friend’ Salman Khan as a Best Choreographer at a recent awards function.
Merchant, who is very well known for her own caliber as a performer as well as a talented dancer was nominated for Nashe Si Chadh Gayee. However, in the same category, even Salman was nominated for Jag Ghoomeya. If you remember, even this song has been choreographed by Vaibhavi.
But at an interview given during the time of Sultan promotions, the celebrated choreographer stated how the famous hook step was Salman’s idea. This may have resulted in the awards committee crediting the entire song to the superstar, leaving the dancer fuming. In fact, she took to Twitter to share her angst as she tweeted, “Why not nominate me as best actor for Sultan if you cud nominate my dearest Salman for best choreographer Jag [email protected]”

According to DNA, she even walked out of the event when Salman’s name was announced during the nominations.
Well, this is not happened first time. Ever since Filmfare Awards took place, a lot of questions from a lot of industry folks have popped up, calling it unfair.
