In a lengthy note, Filmfare wrote, " It pains us at Filmfare, today, to be subjected to unwarranted malicious remarks by Ms. Kangana Ranaut. For six decades, Filmfare Awards, and Filmfare, at large, has been a platform that celebrates and honours talent in the Film industry impartially and with utmost transparency."

"It is our strong ethic that has helped us in gaining the trust of our audiences and the film industry. As is customary during the awards, Filmfare's Executive Editor informed Ms. Ranaut about her nomination in the Best Actor in a Leading Role, Female category and asked for her address to send across the invitation," it added.

The statement further reads, "The exact message was as follows 'Hello Kangana, heartiest congratulations on your nomination for the Filmfare Awards. It'll be a pleasure to have you there, do confirm your presence at the awards ceremony on August 30 at Jio World Convention Centre at BKC Mumbai."

" P.S. Please send us your residential address so that we can send you the invite. Regards.' At no time was there any insinuation of an award being given to her or any request for performance at the event made. This is a patently false accusation being made by Ms. Ranaut," the letter stated further.

We reserve all rights to pursue any legal action against her malicious and defamatory statements tarnishing our reputation and goodwill."

Notably, Kangana Ranaut was nominated in the category of Best Actress at the Filmfare Awards 2022, for her portrayal of 'Thalaivii'.
