Faking News: Indian politicians praising demonetisation to be considered for acting awards

Delhi: Next year’s National Film Awards are going to be slightly different: Along with the actors, various politicians are going to be in the running for the best actor award. All the politicians who are on record praising the decision to ban old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes will be in consideration for this award.

This was confirmed to Faking News by a source at the directorate of film festivals. Politicians from the ruling coalition will get extra credit for their acting.

“We realised that we can’t restrict ourselves to films alone, acting is acting, no matter where you do it.

Even Leonardo diCaprio will give his Oscar to these guys if he sees this excellent performance,” an official at the directorate said.
