Kavita Kaushik recently took a dig at Kangana Ranaut’s Padma honour in her Tweet. The actress also asked why an actor like Priyanka Chopra has not been honoured with the award yet.
Take a look at her Tweet here:
Why didn’t she get padamshree!? Fantastic actor, Brilliant human being, Globally a huge success and has put indian… https://t.co/BsLdkIPNKN

Kavita shared a picture of Priyanka and her husband Nick Jonas performing puja at the Los Angeles home. She captioned it, “Why didn’t she get Padam Shree!? Fantastic actor, Brilliant human being, Globally a huge success and has put Indian culture on a pedestrian (pedestal) without holding a flag about it! And yes has never insulted any senior or contemporary artist or anyone for that matter! She is awesome!!”
However, Kavita seems to be unaware of the fact that Priyanka was awarded the Padma Shri in 2016. A fan brought the same to the notice of the actress. He wrote, ‘She received already. But ur words about her are so true. Maybe you don’t know cos she doesn’t brag nor hold a flag about it. She did mention about it around the release of her memoir.’ Another one added, ‘Ya in fact many other actresses are more deserving than #KanganaRanaut for #PadmaShree award.’
Kangana found herself in soup again after she made statements about the Indian freedom struggle. Speaking about it at an event, Kangana said, “Woh azaadi nahi thi, woh bheek thi. Aur jo azaadi mili hai woh 2014 mai mili hai.’
On the work front, Kangana has films like, ‘Dhaakad’, ‘Tejas’, and ‘Sita: The Incarnation’ in her kitty.
