Actor Vidya Balan, who has won many accolades in her successful film career, contradicts the popular notion that award ceremonies in India are rigged.

At an event to promote the 2020 edition of a popular Bollywood awards function, she said that everything seems fair when an artiste wins an award.

"People often say many things about award ceremonies but I feel when you get that (award) in your hand then everything is fair," said Vidya, at a promotional event for the upcoming 65th edition awards of a media house in Assam.

She further said: "I feel it's every Indian actor or actress' dream to win an Award. It was my dream as well but I never prepared my acceptance speech, because the more you want to win an award, the more you feel anxious after winning it.

It actually happened with me four years in a row. I won Best Actor (Female) award for three year and one year in between I won the Best Actor (Female) Critics' award," she added.

"For four consecutive years, I went on stage to receive an award and I asked myself, 'how can this get any better'. When I got Best Actress for the first time, I thought that I would become mad but when I went on to win it for four consecutive years, I didn't believe it," the actress said.

In 2012, when Vidya won for 'Kahaani,' Priyanka Chopra was reportedly miffed for losing out for her performance in 'Barfi.' Asked for her reaction on that controversy, Vidya said: "I was glad I won it that year," she laughed, and asserted: "I am not that kind to think that she (Priyanka) should have got the award.

I got it and I felt really good about it. As long as enough people felt that my work was worthy. I think this has happened many times in the history of Awards where two performances run neck-and-neck and then one person gets it."
