Vidya Balan's absence from the nominations list at this year's award season, despite a good performance in 'Bobby Jasoos', came as a surprise to the film's producer Dia Mirza but the actress says she has no regrets about not getting a nod. The 37-year-old actress dominated awards shows in previous years with her performance in films like 'Dirty Picture', 'Paa' and 'Kahaani'.

"Obviously it is our film so we all feel about the nomination. Glad to know that so many good films were there in 2014 that they are finding it difficult to nominate. I have no regrets about not getting nominated," Vidya said at an event here last night.

Dia had earlier taken to twitter to express her disappointment over the snub given to the film, about a small-town girl's aspirations to become a detective.

"Articles, reviews stated that her performance was excellent. But when it came to nominations she was completely ignored. Why? I have always celebrated the achievements of my industry/colleagues and I will continue to. But I ask, why has #VidyaBalan been ignored," the actress-producer had tweeted.

Vidya, however, said that she still believes in awards

"I have been the recipient of many awards and I believe in them. Awards are appreciations from the audience and fraternity," she said.
