Taapsee Pannu recently received the Filmfare for Best Actress for her tremendous performance in Anubhav Sinha’s Thappad. The actress while receiving the award thanked her fellow nominees including actress Kangana Ranaut.
A video clip from the award ceremony went viral, where Tapsee says, “Thank you so much Kangana for pushing the boundaries. The benchmark of your performances just keeps going higher every year”. Taapsee also thanked Deepika Padukone, Vidya Balan and Janhvi Kapoor.
A Twitter user shared the clip calling Taapsee ‘sasti (cheap)’. However, has frequently reacted and wrote, ‘Thank you @taapsee well deserved Vimal elaichi filmfare award…. no one deserves it more than you.”
It comes as a surprise for both the actress’s fans. Taapsee and Kangana have a long history of the word war. After Taapsee had said in an interview that Kangana needed a ‘double filter’, which result in Kangana calling her a ‘B-grade’ actor and a bootlicker of producer Karan Johar.
Taapsee had said in an interview earlear, “I have been perplexed for the last few months seeing people calling me out when I have only nice things to say about her and others. You can have your opinion, I can have mine. My opinion not matching yours doesn’t make me wrong. The hypocrisy was exposed when you yourself are fighting for outsiders and simultaneously pulling down other outsiders. Which side are you on? You are using this opportunity to settle some personal scores. You are fighting against harassment and bullying, but in the same breath how can you bully others. That’s kind of wrong.”
