Kangana Ranaut has been conferred with the prestigious Padma Shri and actress Alia Bhatt sent a bouquet of flowers to congratulate her. Kangana’s sister and manager Rangoli Chandel was amused by this gesture and took to Twitter to express the same.
Sharing a picture of the flowers, Rangoli wrote, ''Yeh dekho Alia ji ne bhi Kangana ko phool bheje hain, Kangana ka pata nahin magar mujhe bahut maza aa raha hai. (Look, Alia has also sent flowers. I don’t know about Kangana but I am really enjoying it.)''

Kangana has often taken nasty jibes at Alia in the past. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Kangana had said, ''I told her if she is only focusing on earning bucks and does not raise a voice, then her success has no value... Hope she understands the true meaning of success and her responsibilities; nepo gang’s life is simply restricted to give and take favours. Hope she rises above that.''
On another occasion, Kangana called Alia’s performance in Gully Boy 'mediocre'. However, Alia has refrained from replying to Kangana’s comments.
Meanwhile, talking about being honoured with Padma Shri, Kangana Ranaut said, "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."
Apart from Kangana, Karan Johar Ekta Kapoor and Adnan Sami have also been awarded with Padma Shri.
The Padma Shri for this year has been awarded to a total of 118 eminent personalities across fields of art, literature and education, medicine, trade and industry, sports, public affairs, social work and science and engineering.
