Kangana, who is known for her popular hits including Queen, Tanu Weds Manu series and other films boycotted the award functions after 2014. Kangana talking about her experiences about one of the award show said that she was once refused award as she got stuck in traffic and failed to reach the event on time. 

Sharing her experience in an interview with Hindustan Times Kangana said, “Initially you have this ideal notion of the system. It is about adding to your Wikipedia (page) so it is all a fairy tale image. I have had some very ugly experiences. Early on, I got dressed up for some award, I don't remember the award, but I was supposed to receive the award for supporting cast for Life In A Metro. I got stuck in traffic. I started getting calls asking ‘where are you’. The hysteria and panic that I experienced, I didn’t make it and Soha (Ali Khan) got it for Rang De Basanti.”

Kangana sharing another incident said, “I was in the United States for my screenwriting course when I got a call from Filmfare in 2014. They told me I was going to get an award for Krrish 3 and they requested me to come back for just one day so I could attend the awards.” I told them I am doing my course and going back and forth will cost me around 10 lakh. Because I would miss my classes, I told them it’s not possible. They decided to give the Best Supporting Actress award to Supriya Pathak for Ram Leela instead. It is not to take their credit away, but just that you guys want anecdotes.” 

A National-award winner Kangana also shared an incident which occurred ahead of the National award event. Kangana said, “For another award function, Deepika Padukone got an award for Happy New Year. And they didn’t give me an award for Queen as I didn’t show up. The next year they made sure I didn’t get the Best Actress award for Tanu Weds Manu Returns and later I got the National Award. Then they got trolled.”
