The 5th Boroplus Gold Awards were not without the usual share of controversies. A heated argument took place on the stage between the winner of the best villain award, Anupam Shyam Ojha and the host of the evening, Manish Paul.
The provocation started due to Manish getting somewhat uncomfortable by the unending thanksgiving speech by Anupam, after winning the award. The senior actor took quite a long time for his speech, which according to Manish should have been short and sweet. After prodding Anupam several times, Manish failed to make him end the speech.
Seeing no other alternative, Manish then went ahead and lied down right in the middle of the stage pretending to take a nap. This action by Manish enraged Anupam Shyam no end. He felt insulted by this act of Manish, which he felt was downright rude.
He minced no words in telling Manish about his feelings and a war of words was started right in the middle of the show. The audiences were the most uncomfortable, as the two actors were on a insulting spree with each other.
