Mumbai, Jan 26 (IANS) After winning the National Award for best supporting actress for her performance in 'Fashion', Kangana Ranaut is elated and says she has won the highest honour at a very young age and maybe she should pack her bags and go back home.
'There's a mini celebration in my house, though my parents were crying when they heard about it. At 23, I seem to have cracked the highest cultural award for the country. What more can I do? I should just pack up and go back to my home in Himachal (Pradesh) now with my parents,' Kangana told IANS.
Kangna was also very happy for her co-star Priyanka Chopra who won the National Award for the best actress for her role in 'Fashion'. 'I messaged her to say how happy I was for both of us,' said Kangana.
Director Madhur Bhandarkar, who personally didn't win any award this year, was very happy for Priyanka and Kangana.
'I'm really happy for Priyanka and Kangna. Altogether this makes 11 National Awards for my movies,' he said.
Farhan Akhtar, the leading man and co-producer of 'Rock On!', which won the National Award for best Hindi film, was amazed at how far the film had come.
'I had now put 'Rock On' completely at the back of my mind, what with all the hectic promotion I'm doing for my new film 'Karthik Calling Karthik', pre-production sequel to 'Don' and my sister Zoya's next film,' Farhan told IANS
'Suddenly, the National Award reminded me of how far 'Rock On!' had come. I'm very proud of my director Abhishek Kapoor and my co-star Arjun Rampal (who also won the National Award). Incidentally, debut films are lucky for me. I made my directorial debut with 'Dil Chahta Hai' and my acting debut in 'Rock On!',' he added.
