Soon after the announcement was made, Kangana expressed her gratitude through a video message. “I’m humbled and I’m honoured. I am grateful to the Indian government, my fans and friends. I thank my country for this recognition and I dedicate this to every woman who dares to dream. To every daughter… to every mother… and to the dreams of women who will shape the future of our country,” stated the ‘Panga’ actress. Apart from Kangana, filmmakers Ekta Kapoor and Karan Johar were also conferred with the award.
‘Thalaivi’ is a biopic on late actress turned politician Jayalalitha. The film is slated for release on June 26.
