Filmfare Reacts To Kangans’s Allegations & Withdraws Her Nomination For Best Actress Award

Kangana Ranaut who was recently making rounds on social media due to the failure of her recent film Dhaakad is again making headlines. The controversy queen of Bollywood is known for knowingly and unknowingly getting into rifts and controversies. Recently also, she has ignited one with Filmfare magazine. 

Filmfare is one of the highly appreciated and acclaimed magazines and awards when it comes to the Indian Film Industry. The magazine organizes an award function every year to honor the best works and performances of the year. And to continue the legacy, the magazine is preparing for the upcoming Filmfare Award Function.

But before everything could settle well, Filmfare was dragged into an unwanted controversy by Miss Ranaut. Kangana took it to her Instagram account where she shared that she will sue Filmfare. She also claimed that Filmfare wants to give her an award for Thalaivi. In her statement, Kangana also bashed Filmfare by calling it corrupt and totally unfair.

Kangana wrote, “I’ve banned unethical, corrupt and totally unfair practices like @filmfare since 2014, but since I have been getting many calls from them for attending their award function this year as they want to give me award for Thalaivii… I am shocked to know that they are still nominating me. It is beneath my dignity, work ethics and value system to encourage such corrupt practices in anyway, that is why I have decided to sue @filmfare … thanks” 

After the statement of Kangana Ranaut went viral, it made big headlines. Filmfare on the other hand decided not to stay quiet and speak against the same.

Now Filmfare also has released an official statement addressing Kangana Ranaut’s allegation. In the statement, Filmfare also released the exact message that was sent to Kangana for inviting her to the Filmfare awards.

The message reads, ‘Hello Kangana, heartiest congratulations on your nomination for the Filmfare Awards. It’ll be a pleasure to have you there, do confirm your presence at the awards ceremony on August 30 at Jio World Convention Centre at BKC, Mumbai. It’ll help us plot your seats. P.S. Please send us your residential address so that we can send you the invite. Regards.’

Filmfare specifically mentioned, ‘At no time was there any insinuation of an award being given to her or any request for performance at the event made.’

Filmfare also expressed their disappointment to Kangana’s words and behaviour. The popular magazine released a statement that follows, “It pains us at Filmfare, today, to be subjected to unwarranted malicious remarks by Ms. Kangana Ranaut. For over six decades, Filmfare Awards, and Filmfare, at large, has been a platform that celebrates and honours talent in the Film industry impartially and with utmost transparency. It is our strong ethic that has helped us in gaining the trust of our audiences and the film industry. As is customary during the awards, Filmfare’s Executive Editor informed Ms. Ranaut about her nomination in the Best Actor in a Leading Role, Female category and asked for her address to send across the invitation.”

Filmfare has also withdrawn Kangana’s nomination for Filmfare’s Best Actress Award. The statement also added, “This is a patently false accusation being made by Ms Ranaut. Our invitation to her was our effort in bringing together everyone in a collective celebration of what brings this nation together, i.e. Indian Cinema. Filmfare Awards are a celebration of cinematic excellence and are awarded irrespective of the fact that a nominee attends or performs at the function. Further, Ms. Ranaut a 5-time Filmfare Awardee, was given the award twice in absentia (2014 & 2015). Despite knowing that she would neither attend nor perform. Given the irresponsible remarks made by Ms. Ranaut about Filmfare Awards, we are withdrawing her Best Actress nomination for the movie Thalaivii.”  

Not only this but it is also expected that Filmfare will now take this issue to legal levels. Filmfare has ended its statement with, ‘We reserve all rights to pursue any legal action against her malicious and defamatory statements tarnishing our reputation and goodwill.’
