Rubina Dilaik promised herself she’d never attend another awards show after this harrowing incident.

Actor Rubina Dilaik has said that she promised herself she would never attend awards shows after a particularly embarrassing incident many years ago. In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, the actor recalled when she was nominated for her lead performance in a television show, but didn’t win even though she was convinced she would.

She said that she was eventually told that other factors had been taken into consideration in deciding the winner, and that they weren’t entirely merit-based. After that, she said she vowed to never attend another awards show if she was nominated.

Rubina Dilaik said, “One of the awards nights, I was super excited. I wore a black dress, especially went to Lokhandwala to buy it. Got my hair curled and everything. And my show was at the top at that time. It had a rating of 5.7. I knew I was going to win the best actor award, I had worked hard. You have that confidence about the craft and the skill that you’ve honed. I knew I would win.”
