The ‘Jolly LLB 2' star, who was present at an event by Movie Stunt Artistes Association for the insurance of all the stunt artistes who work in Hindi films, said: “I have noticed it in the past 25 years that whenever someone wins, there's bound to be a discussion on it. So it's not something new. Someone or the other creates a controversy that this person should not have got it.”

“I have received a National Award after 26 years, take it back if you want to,” he said.

For the unversed, Khiladi Kumar was named the Best Actor for his performance in the crime thriller ‘Rustom'. —ANI
