Tanu Weds Manu Returns actress was also recommended for the prestigious award...
Kangana Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra are the finest actresses of Bollywood. They have amazed us with some fabulous performances in their films. However while Priyanka is on a career high with her American TV series Quantico doing well, Kangana is currently going through a
bad phase as she battles Hrithik Roshan in a legal proceeding. The actress has claimed that she and Hrithik were in a relationship and they have exchanged a lot of emails with each other. On the other hand, Hrithik has SLAMMED these claims and told that an imposter was talking with Kangana. He even added that after he was made aware of the imposter, he gave the actress the real id and since then she has been harassing him with a lot of emails every day.
However, amidst all this controversy the actress was given the National Award a few days back and has now left for a vacation too. In the meanwhile, we hear that Kangana was also recommended for the Padma Bhushan awards (for the Padma Shri award) for this year. But, we now hear that she had not made it to the final cut! If you know, this year
Ajay Devgn and Priyanka Chopra were conferred the Padma Shri award.
According to a report in Times Of India - cricketers Gautam Gambhir and Zaheer Khan, actor Kangana Ranaut and IIT-Bombay director Devang Khakhar were among the many who were recommended for the Padma Bhushan award this year, but they didn't make it to the final cut. A Right to Information query filed by a person revealed that many names were recommended this time around and a few of them didn't walk away with the prestigious award this time.
Kangana had made it to the second list but the nine-member awards committee did not consider her and the cricketers for the award this year. They instead chose Priyanka over Kangana and hence, Priyanka was conferred the Padma Shri. This year's committee comprised of P N Tandon, S Gurumurthy , Dr A Surya Prakash, Dr Sonal Man Singh, Manju Sharma, professor Syed Bari, the home secretary and the secretary to the president.
This year we had 112 persons awardees, comprising of 10 Padma Vibhushan, 19 Padma Bhushan and 83 Padma Shri awardees. It is a usual practice to invite recommendations, but not all make the cut and it seems
Kangana didn't make the cut this time around! Meanwhile she must be happy that she won her 3rd National Award.
