PTC Awards or Speed Record Awards?
PTC Awards or Speed Record Awards? – Sardool Sikander
A news article has appeared in Dainik Bhaskar which reports that one of the best Punjabi Singers ever, Sardool Sikander suggested that the title of PTC Awards should be changed to Speed Records Awards. He said this at Ludhiana during the “Beti Bachao” movement as held by Hindi Dainik Bhaskar.
PTC Punjabi Music Awards have always been in conflict. Just like previous awards, even this year the awards have come under negative criticism for being biased. Initially there have been many incidents of people raising suspicions against the nominations on their Facebook pages. Mostly the concern has been that the nominations are not justified. When the results came out, there was a flood of posts on social networking sites claiming that the awards were biased towards Speed Records.
This is not the first time this has happened. In most of the award ceremonies held by PTC, be it Music or Movies, the awards always go to Speed Records. One could debate that this might have something to do with the fact that Speed Records is the biggest music company in Punjab at the moment and they have all the big names. On the other hand, it can’t be ignored that most of the other companies (including T-Series, Wanjali Records and Goyal Music) are simply ignored.
In a bold move, esteemed singer Sardool Sikander, voiced his opinions in a sarcastic tone that the title of PTC Awards should be changed to Speed Records Awards. The news in Dainik Bhaskar also reports that Sardool Sikander said that PTC awards are always tilted towards the singers that provide them with advertisements.
