I had no idea that I was nominated. When the team was leaving for the event, they asked me about my travel plans. I had no idea how to go to Singapore, where to stay, and I was too embarrassed to even ask my crew about ticket prices. So I missed that opportunity. When I won, Bobby Singh, DOP of Gangster and Queen, who is sadly no more, called and said he is getting my trophy. I was thrilled and it’s one of my fondest memories,” said Kangana in a press statement. Also Read - Kangana Ranaut Donates Rs 10 Lakh to Daily Wagers Working on Thalaivi And FEFSI UNION
