Sonam Kapoor has always been a fan of Kangana Ranaut and her work. During an interview with a leading tabloid, she was all praises for Tanu Weds Manu and Kangana’s efforts as an actress. She said,
The two of best performers this year was Kangana Ranaut for Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Deepika Padukone for Piku. For me the most commercially amazing performance was Tanu Manu 2 because she was amazing and she should have got all the most popular awards everywhere. Also for me critically Piku was the best performance of the year and so was Richa Chadda in Masaan. But I feel Kangana should own it by attending award shows as she would have received the awards.
She went on to say that she understands Kangana:
She deserves those awards, because she is not attending the award shows, she is not getting it and she is kind of damaging herself. I understand the principles for what she is standing for and I completely agree with her. However for me Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Bajrangi Bhaijaan are the best films this year and they should be receiving the awards everywhere.
