Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has decided to sue Filmfare for nominating her for her work in the biopic 'Thalaivii', in the upcoming edition of the Filmfare Awards.
The actress took to the story section of her Instagram and wrote a lengthy note explaining the reason for the decision.
“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,” her note on Instagram story read.
Earlier, Kangana had called for a boycott of international awards like Oscars and Emmys for not paying tributes to Lata Mangeshkar.
On the work front, Kangana has the film ‘Emergency’ in the pipeline. ‘Emergency’ also marks Kangana’s directorial debut whilst she plays the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in it.
Kangana Ranaut wrote, "I have been protesting unethical, corrupt and totally unfair practices like @filmfare since 2014, but this year I received many invitations from them to attend their award ceremony and they want to award me ‘Talaivi’ ( sic)."
