Kangana Ranaut said: "Their theatre business is crashing because of the influx of digital media. I'm all for world cinema, but it needs to be a film that brings employment and money into our country"
"We were expecting Mr Bachchan to win. I was quite sure that he had great chances of winning the best actor award as he was incredible as Bhashkor Banerjee. I was really hoping for Deepika to win the Best Actress award as I feel she gave a beautiful performance," said the film's director Shoojit Sircar
"However, as the jury thought that Kangana was a better choice. I agree she has done a fabulous job in Tanu Weds Manu Returns. I am very happy for Kangana but as a director and producer, I wanted Priyanka or Deepika to win. Also, I don't make films for awards or box office collections," said Sanjay Leela Bhansali
Baahubali star Rana Daggubati said: "I am thrilled. We took a risk and attempted to do something different with it. Now with this award, we feel honoured." Sanjay Leela Bhansali won the Best Director Award for Bajirao Mastani, starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra
