Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, filmmaker Karan Johar and producer Ekta Kapoor have been honoured with the Padma Shri for their contribution in the field of performing arts. The Padma awards were announced by Government of India on the eve of Republic Day on Saturday.

Popular singers Adnan Sami and Suresh Wadkar were also honoured with Padma Shri.

“I’m humbled and I’m honoured. I thank my country for this recognition and I dedicate this to every woman who dares to dream. To every daughter… to every mother… and to the dreams of women who will shape the future of our country,” Kangana said.

Her film “Panga” has released on Friday and director of the film, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, felt proud of the actress and mentioned: “There are very few humans who have the ability to be visionaries not for just themselves but also for others. Kangana has risen on her own through her dedication and hard work despite many challenges and limited support.”
