NEW DELHI: Blaming high interest rates for the companies holding back investments, leading industry body Ficci's new President Jyotsna Suri today said the RBI and the government need to shed their "confrontationist approach" and sit together to address the issue. Suri said there is an urgent need to cut the interest rates by as much as 1-2 per cent. "He (RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan) really needs to relent a little.

But as a newcomer, he also must have been enamored by the glittering award ceremonies every year. Is this something he learned over the years, or was sure from the beginning? “My father is an action director (Jai Singh Nijjar), and has received a couple of awards for films like Shivaay (2016) and Gangaajal (2003). I remember going for them (ceremonies)… there are some awards which are very real, some are not. The whole perception about it is that do you really need the trophy? There are people who haven’t earned it, yet they get it. Here are writers who work their a** off like anything. Why don’t you give the credit to them? There are female actors who are good as leads, they don’t get the credit. That’s the reason I don’t feel like,” adds the 34-year old, recently seen in Jai Mummy Di. … [Read more...] about Sunny Singh on not being too keen on awards: ‘Some are real, some are not’
