If Manikarnika or I don’t win at National Awards, its credibility will be questioned: Kangana Ranaut
Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has always been known to speak her mind, especially with the recent success of Manikarnika, which she says was ignored by the film industry. Recently, in an interview on her 32nd birthday, the actor speaking about the success of the film said that if she or the film doesn’t get a National Award, then the credibility of the organisation will be questioned.
Kangana, who has previously won National Awards for films like Fashion, Queen, and Tanu Weds Manu said that there are certain things if you don’t respect then it is actually disrespectful to the organisation itself. However, the actor said that if there is another film which is better than Manikarnika that does come out before the awards, then she will be objective enough to accept it. Kangana said among all the other performances last year, she loved Tabu’s performance in Andhadhun, but apart from that, she hasn’t recently seen any other film in contention. She also went on to add that while she will definitely appreciate a better performance than Manikarnika, she does not think it will happen.
On the work front, Kangana will next be seen in Mental Hai Kya with Rajkummar Rao, a film directed by Ekta Kapoor and directed by Prakash Kovelamudi. According to recent reports, she is also set to work on the Jayalalithaa biopic for which she is going to get Rs 24 crore, becoming the highest paid actor in Bollywood right now. Deepika Padukone was earlier said to be the highest paid after she got Rs 13 crore for Padmaavat.
