Mumbai, Dec 22 - Debutant actress Kangana Ranaut was taken aback when her trophy was given to Soha Ali Khan at the Sabse Favourite Kaun awards function recently.
Kangana, who was told she had been picked for the Sabsey Favourite Nayi heroine of the year, is both humoured and horrified.
'I was told I was getting the award for Sabsey Favourite Nayi heroine. I got delayed in the traffic. When I reached the venue I could hear Shah Rukh's name being announced. Obviously my category had already passed,' Kangana told IANS.
'I was told to stay on and that my trophy would be sent to me at home. I sat through the rest of the function without knowing that my award had been given to someone else. I didn't even know Soha got the award until a friend phoned to say so. It's rather sad and funny,' said Kangana, who made an impressive debut with 'Gangster - A Love Story' this year.
Kangana refuses to take the matter seriously.
'It's okay. I like Soha a lot. They probably needed a presence on stage. It doesn't look nice to give the award to an absentee winner. I'm sure I'll have many other opportunities.'
As for Soha, just how she qualifies, as a new face after being in the industry for two years, is a question only the awards committee can answer.
