Kangana Ranaut collects National Award in western outfit


Kangana Ranaut who is known for her fashion statement opted for a western outfit for the National Award. Instead of going traditional, Kangana has gone for western dress designed by Bibhu Mohapatra, whose garment was worn by US first lady Michelle Obama when she visited India earlier this year.

“@kangana_ranaut in #Bibhu at #nationalfilmswards #delhi #bestactress…,” Bibhu tweeted.

The 28-year-old actress bagged her second National Award for her stupendous performance in ‘Queen’.

The actress wore a long cape and slit at the back. She completed her look with her hair tied up in a bun and a dark maroon lipstick.

Kangana took home the best actress National Award along with South star Vijay, who won the best actor trophy for his role in Kannada film ‘Nanu Avanalla Avalu’.

Earlier, Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra bagged the National Award for ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Fashion’ respectively.

If we look back, when Kangana Ranaut won her first National Award for ‘Fashion’ in the best supporting actress category, she was dressed in a black salwar kameez.

The actress will be next seen in ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ alongside R Madhavan.

Shashi Kapoor, 77, who is suffering from old age ailment, will collect the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in Mumbai on May 20. A special film on the actor was shown at the ceremony.

The president also congratulated the actor. "My special congratulation is to Shri Shashi Kapoor. His contribution to cinema has been tremendous. He is a true living legend. He began his career as a child artist in the films Aag and Awara, and then we saw him as a flamboyant hero in many blockbuster films," he said.
