It was touch-and-go for Kangana Ranaut at her first awards function in Kuala Lampur on Saturday night. Awarded for best female debutante in Gangster, Kangana went
through an unexpected trauma.
A routine delay at the GIFA awards made the actress miss the flight for Dubai where she was supposed to attend the festival the next day.
Laughs the actress, "I don't know if it was a routine delay. I've no experience with awards ceremonies. GIFA was my first ever awards. And I was damn excited to get the
trophy from Rakesh Mehra.
However the function which was supposed to start at 7 pm finally started at 11. I rushed out soon after I got my award. But it was too
late. I had missed my flight to Dubai for the festival there," Kangana shivers at the memory.
Fortunately she was able to find a place in a later flight. "And I reached Dubai just in time for the red carpet at the Dubai Film Festival."
Kangana shudders at the thought of how much losses she'd have suffered if she had failed to reach Dubai.
"It was an endorsed event and heavy compensations
were involved. But no complaints. I loved the idea of getting my first award. This was actually my second award in two days. But I couldn't be in Singapore for my best
–actress award at the Asian Awards For 1st Films."
Is it true the producers Mahesh Bhatt and co didn't arrange for her travel to Singapore in time? "I wouldn't like to comment on that. The Bhatts have been more than fair to
me. In fact I made it a point to thank them at the GIFA."
After GIFA Kangana has become a huge fan of Hrithik Roshan. "In a world filled with dishonourable intentions Hrithik is such a thorough genteleman. He knows how to
make a lady feel special. He spoke to me as if I was the best actress in the world.
I think his wife is very very lucky...Where can I find a husband like that?" sighs
Kangana who has no one that special in her life.
What about rumours of her and Upen Patel? "Are we talking about someone special in my life?" she retorts tongue-in-cheek.
