Mumbai: Actress Deepika Padukone, who has lifted several awards last year for her performances in “Chennai Express” and “”Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram Leela”, says that awards are important as it is sign of appreciation and hardwork. “Awards matter to me. I would have been very disappointed if was not given any award last year. No matter what we say but at the end of the day, the person who goes there and wins the award feels good about it,” the 28-year-old told IANS. “It’s a sign of appreciation and hard work. If you are winning one then you are doing a good job,” she added The actress, who made her Bollywood debut in 2007 with “Om Shanti Om”, also feels that her 2012 released film “Cocktail” was the turning point of her career. “Some of my films didn’t work so I went through that rough phase and I think I made use of that time and realized my mistakes. In stead of being bogged down, I made use of it. ‘Cocktail’ was the turning point in my career,” said Deepika who is currently seen in Shah Rukh Khan starrer “Happy New Year”.

‘A lose-lose situation’ – Cozier

Commentator Tony Cozier has said West Indies could fail to send a squad to their upcoming tour of South Africa as well as the 2015 Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand if the standoff between the West Indies Cricket Board, West Indies Players Association president and CEO Wavell Hinds and the West Indies players’ movement spearheaded by ODI captain Dwayne Bravo remains unresolved.

“The BCCI are very upset that the West Indies board and the players should have called off the tour at this stage,” Cozier told ESPNcricinfo in a telephone interview from Barbados on Friday. “Now having done that, meaning that this tour is finished, they were scheduled to go to South Africa right after. They’ve got three Test matches in December, five one-day internationals in January and a Twenty20 and then they are scheduled to move straight from South Africa to the World Cup in Australia in New Zealand. I can’t see that happening if the standoff remains.”

Cozier characterized the abandonment of the West Indies tour of India as a “lose-lose situation” and stated that both the players and the board shared responsibility for letting the dispute get out of hand. Cozier believes the players should have made their stand prior to leaving the West Indies for the start of the tour, but that once they were in India the WICB should have intervened after the situation escalated on tour with Bravo calling for the resignation of Hinds.

“The West Indies board really should have got involved and said, ‘Look, we can sort this out. Let’s wait for the tour to finish, play all the way through and then we’ll go with what your demands are. We’ll talk about it. If it needs negotiating, we’ll agree with that. But we have to talk about it,’ not to abandon a very important tour, a very significant tour virtually before it started.”

Cozier also lamented that another blow had been delivered to cricket fans in the region now that they can no longer watch their team on tour going up against the reigning World Cup champions. Spectator attendance at grounds throughout the West Indies has been in decline for some time and this latest incident will not help resuscitate what Cozier describes as a waning level of support for West Indies cricket.

“The fact of the matter is that the West Indies, under the ICC rankings for Tests and ODIs, they’re eighth in the list and only above Bangladesh and Zimbabwe,” Cozier said. “The interest in cricket here in the Caribbean on the field has certainly waned to a large extent. The Test matches against New Zealand, a very good series here back in June, a good tight series New Zealand won 2-1, you looked at the crowds then and you had maybe 200-300 people at the ground. The biggest crowd perhaps was in Barbados where you had about 1000. That just reflects the exasperation of the supporters here in the Caribbean. They can’t understand why this should be happening over and over and over. You wonder if they’ve all given up on it now.

“In any situation when you have an employer against an employee, which is the board and the players, that public sympathy would be inclined more to the employee who happens to be the players and of course they are the ones who go into the middle. They are the stars. All the same, there are other sports which have come up and challenged West Indies cricket, which after all has been the bedrock of unity within the Caribbean for the better part of 120 years. Whether it will continue, well that’s another question.”

ranbir_katrinaBesides organizing a surprise birthday party for his alleged beau Ranbir Kapoor, Bollywood beauty Katrina Kaif made the day even more special for Ranbir by gifting him a swanky Rolex worth Rs. 1 crore. And that’s not all. The lady also gifted the Kapoor lad a scuba diving gear as he grew a year older.

Sources say that Katrina left no stone unturned to make Ranbir’s birthday a memorable one.

Ranbir and Katrina have always grabbed eyeballs for sharing great camaraderie off screen. Though they have always remained tight lipped about their relationship, the two have always given enough fodder for the media to speculate about their affair. Be it their secret vacations, family dinners, or getting clicked outside each other’s homes in the wee hours, there have been enough reasons for us to wonder if the two stars are beyond just ‘good friends’.

And now with Kat being so generous with Ranbir’s birthday gift, we hope they don’t mind if our tongues start wagging again!
