“Ranaut Said,” Why wouldn’t I go to receive the National Award? Of course I would!”, informs our source. This is Kangana’s second National Award after she won Best Supporting Actress for her performance as a drug-addicted model in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion in 2008. Kangana, who does not attend Bollywood award shows (and wasn’t present to collect the Filmfare prize for Best Actress she won this year), told NDTV yesterday that she had ‘no idea’ that she was in the National Award race but would accept it in person if she won.
She had won her first National Award, as best supporting actress, for “Fashion” in 2010.
While her performance has been lauded, Kangana’s decision of not attending Award shows has caused most functions to not give her any awards. But now that she has won the National Award, will Kangana make a change in her plans? Will she attend the ceremony to receive her Award? Nevertheless, we do feel that she truly deserves it! The National Awards will be handed out by President Pranab Mukherjee on May 3 in New Delhi’s Vigyan Bhawan. Veteran actor Shashi Kapoor will also receive his Dadasaheb Phalke Award at the ceremony.
