Filmfare Hits Back At Kangana Ranaut, Remind Her Of Winning 5 Filmfare Awards

After Kangana Ranaut openly slams Filmfare and sues them, the leading magazine hits back at her.

Kangana Ranaut has got into a legal battle with Filmfare. The actress has decided to sue the leading magazine after they informed her about her nomination for Thalaivii and invited her to attend the 67th Filmfare Awards.

Kangana took to her Instagram story and wrote, “I’ve banned unethical, corrupt and totally unfair practices like @filmfare since 2014, but since I have been getting many calls from them for attending their award function this year as they want to give me award for Thalaivii… I am shocked to know that they are still nominating me. It is beneath my dignity, work ethics and value system to encourage such corrupt practices in anyway, that is why I have decided to sue @filmfare … thanks.” 

A few hours later, Filmfare hit back at her on social media. They wrote in their Instagram story, “It pains us at Filmfare, today, to be, subjected to unwarranted malicious remarks by Ms Kangana Ranaut. For six decades, Filmfare Awards, and Filmfare at large, has been a platform that celebrates and honours talent in the film industry impartially and with utmost transparency. It is our strong ethic that has helped us in gaining the trust of our audiences and the film industry. As in customary during the awards, Filmfare’s Executive Editor informed Ms Ranaut about her nomination in the Best Actor in a Leading Role, Female Category and asked her address to send across the invitation. At no time there was any insinuation of an award being given to her or any request for performance at the event made.”

Filmfare clarified, “This is a patently false accusation being made by Ms Ranaut. Our invitation to her was our effort in bringing together everyone in a collective celebration of what brings this nation together, i.e. Indian cinema. Filmfare Awards are a celebration of cinematic excellence and are awarded irrespective of the fact that a nominee attends or performs at the function. Further, Ms Ranaut a 5-time Filmfare Awardee, was given the award twice in absentia (2014 & 2015). Despite knowing that she would neither attend nor perform.’

They withdrew her nomination from the 67th Filmfare Awards and also indicated taking legal action against her. “Given the irresponsible remarks made by Ms Ranaut about Filmfare Awards, we are withdrawing her Best Actress nomination for the movie Thalaivii. We reserve the rights to pursue any legal action against her malicious and defamatory statements tarnishing our reputation and goodwill,” they concluded.
