Kangana's official Instagram account, managed by her team, shared a photo of the actor and captioned it with the words, "New Year started with a great note! Highly acclaimed Actor and Director, #KanganaRanaut, who has won multiple national awards at the age of 32, has been awarded with the highest honour in the country, #PadmaShri, on the eve of #RepublicDay 2020.
