Actor Taapsee Pannu recently won the 66th Filmfare Award in the Best Actress category for her performance in Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad. A video clip from the awards ceremony shows how the actor thanked her fellow nominees in her acceptance speech, including actor Kangana Ranaut.
“Thank you so much Kangana for pushing the boundaries. The benchmark of your performances just keeps going higher every year,” she said. Taapsee also thanked Deepika Padukone, Vidya Balan and Janhvi Kapoor.

When a user shared the clip from Taapsee’s acceptance speech, Kangana was quick to reply. In her response, the Thalaivi actor wrote, “Thank you @taapsee well deserved Vimal elaichi filmfare award…. no one deserves it more than you.”
Kangana recently received her fourth National Award – Best Actress for Panga and Manikarnika.
Kangana regularly takes to Twitter to express her anguish with her colleagues from the Hindi film industry. In response to a fan’s tweet recently, she expressed how she praised the work of her contemporaries like Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma and Kareena Kapoor, but none of them reciprocated by lauding her performance in any of her films.
On the work front, Kangana is awaiting the release of the multi-lingual political biopic on former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa, titled Thailaivi, directed by AL Vijay. Taapsee, on the other side, began filming for Shabaash Mithu, a biographical drama based on the life of Indian cricketer Mithali Raj.
