Kangana Ranaut reacts on not receiving National Award for Thalaivii
Apart from Kangana Ranaut, Thalaivii also starred Arvind Swamy, Nassar, Raj Arjun, and Samuthirakani in the Hindi and Tamil versions
The 69th National Awards were announced on Thursday evening at the National Media Center in Delhi. Among the winners were Allu Arjun, Alia Bhatt, Kriti Sanon, Pankaj Tripathi, Pallavi Joshi and a host of others.
While wishes have been pouring from all quarters, there is also widespread disappointment among fans as some films that they rooted for didn't receive recognition.
One such film was Kangana Ranaut-starrer Thalaivii. Reacting to the same, Kangana took to her Instagram handle and wrote, "Congratulations to all the winners of #nationalawards2023. It is such an art carnival that brings all the artists across the country together.... It's truly magical to know and to get introduced to so much important work that's happening across all languages..."
Further, she wrote, "All of you who are disappointed that my film Thalaivii didn't win any... please know I am eternally grateful for whatever Krishna give and didn't give me and all of you who really love and appreciate me must appreciate my perspective as well ... Art is subjective and I truly believe that the jury did their best... I wish everyone the best. Hare Krishna."
Apart from Kangana Ranaut, the political drama which was based on the story of late CM J Jayalalithaa's life, also starred Arvind Swamy, Nassar, Raj Arjun, and Samuthirakani in the Hindi and Tamil versions. GV Prakash composed the music for the film.
