Like Aamir Khan, Kangana too, doesn’t believe in awards. And when recently she won the Best Actress award for ‘Queen’ even though she did not attend the function, Kangana seemed overwhelmed. On the day of the awards night Kangana attended a party for Padma awardees which was also attended by Aamir Khan.
Kangana had earlier commented that earlier once she was promised an award for ‘Krrish 3’ if she “showed up”. And this year she was surprised that she actually won an award for ‘Queen’ even though she was absent.
Having said that, a report by Times of India read that Sujoy Ghosh wanted Kangana to attend the award ceremony as it was her year. Also it may be noted that there were reports about Kangana and Sujoy having fallout after she walked out of his Durga Rani Singh over creative differences. But she chose not to attend the function and replied, “Sujoy and I never had any differences. He texted me asking why I wasn’t going for the Filmfare Awards given that it was my year. I told him every year is my year. Queen is just the beginning.”
And as she won the awards, Kangana chose to silence all saying, “Yet, I continue to be get offers. People are actually praying to work with me. And I continue to win awards even in absentia so Sujoy can do a celebratory jig. People like him, Anandji and Nikhil who love and respect me and have made this journey memorable.”
But will this win make Kangana attend award functions? Our ‘Queen’ actor says, “You’re awarding a performance not a person so it’s disrespectful to make attendance a pre-condition. My ‘Queen’ cinematographer, Bobby Singh, is no longer in this world, but his work deserves to be acknowledged posthumously. I may be shooting or unwell on that day. But that shouldn’t stop anyone from recognizing my performance.”
Currently, Kangana is busy with Nikhil Advani’s project ‘Katti Batti’.
