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"
"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
There were reports that Kangana Ranaut will be seen with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in Sanjay Dutt's biopic to be directed by Rajkumar Hirani. "I don't want to be disrespectful to Raju sir, but the truth is I have not been approached for this film. I am busy with Rangoon at the moment," Kangana said
Kangana is travelling to Manali while Kareena's back in Mumbai
