14sep_KangnaRanautKangana Ranaut has achieved what very few mainstream Bollywood actors achieve by winning the prestigious National Award for Best Actress. Kangana won the award for her critically-acclaimed performance in the woman oriented drama/comedy Queen, directed by Vikas Bahl. She is just one of many people to have scored at this year’s National Film Awards, which celebrate the best of cinema on a national scale and beyond Bollywood also. Queen also won the award for Best Feature Film in Hindi.

Kangana has won a National Award before for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Fashion (2008). Given the unanimous praise she has received for her work in Queen, this story comes as no surprise. Congratulations Kangana!

The other big Bollywood winner was Vishal Bhardwaj’s Haider, which won the awards for Best Choreography, Best Music, Best Male Playback Singer for Sukhwinder Singh (Bismil), as well as Best Costume. Unfortunately, Shahid Kapoor missed out on the Best Actor Award, which went to Vijay for the Kannada film Nanu Avanalla Avala.
