Sachin Pilgaonkar pricked the question
The Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Awards were instituted in Mumbai by its founder Ram Gopal Gupta. Even then, many organizations had requested him that his awards should be publicized not as Dadasaheb Phalke Award but as Dadasaheb Phalke Academy Award. This is because as soon as they get these awards, many of these actors start pressurizing the film journalists of Mumbai to publish the news of these awards. And, in many such releases, the words Academy or The Legend are intentionally omitted. When he started talking to Sachin Pilgaonkar in connection with the second season of the web series ‘City of Dreams’, when he was asked about it, at first he did not say anything wrong in it but on giving information that the National Emblems or National Awards It is not even legal to imitate it, they put the onus on the government to stop it. Not only this, he also requested to keep this conversation focused on the second season of the web series ‘City of Dreams’.
