On Thursday evening, the 69th National Awards were announced at the National Media Centre in Delhi. Alia Bhatt and Kriti Sanon received National Film Awards for Best Actress for their performances in Gangubai Kathiawadi and Mimi, respectively.
Just a while back, Kangana took to her social media handle to react to the news. Kangana 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 added, 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.”
In the Hindi and Tamil versions of Thalaivii, Arvind Swamy, Nassar, Raj Arjun, and Samuthirakani also appeared. It was based on the life of J. Jayalalithaa, an Indian actress-politician who died on December 5, 2016.
Kangana will next be seen in her directorial debut, Emergency, which will be her second project. The actress is also working on a sequel to the 2005 Tamil film Chandramukhi.
