She also talked about her own film Thalaivii not getting any awards at the announcement. “All of you who are disappointed that my film Thalaivii didn’t win any… please know I am eternally grateful for whatever Krishna gave and didn’t give me and all of you who really love and appreciate me must appreciate my perspective as well … Art is subjective and I truly believe that the jury did their best …. I wish everyone the best Hare Krishna C2 V,” she added.
More about Thalaivii
Released in 2021, Thalaivii was based on the life and struggles of late politician-actor, former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa. Kangana played the titular role in the film. A. L. Vijay directed the film that was written by V. Vijayendra Prasad. The film proved to be a major failure at the box office. It wasn’t received well in the critical circles as well. While most reviews praised Kangana for her performance, the story and screenplay were widely criticised.
