Kangana Ranaut today said winning her career’s second National award for “Queen” came as a special but sweet surprise. The actress was shooting for her upcoming film “Tanu Weds Manu Returns” when she got the news.
“This award is special for me. I had no clue about it because a day before I was busy with my birthday and the poster launch of ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’. It’s a real thing for me because unlike other awards there was no pre-nomination party and ‘ho halla’ about it,” she told PTI in an interview.
Kangana was a front-runner for the honour for her powerful-yet-subtle portrayal of a traditional girl who goes on a journey of self-realisation after being ditched at the altar in the Vikas Bahl-directed movie. The actress won her first National award in the best supporting actress category for “Fashion”.
“To be honest, I really don’t remember the day I won my first National award. I was watching TV and came to know that I won it. I was young at that time. I am glad that ‘Queen’ connected everyone. I think the cheer from the people when the award was announced on March 24th was something which all actor wants,” she said.
