Kangana Ranaut made her Bollywood debut 14 years ago in Anurag Basu's Gangster.

Kangana started acting at 17, and the film that made her a star released a year later.

On the 14th anniversary of her debut, Kangana revealed how she won the best actress award for Gangster, but didn't have the money to travel to Singapore to collect her prize.

 

 

 

"I had no idea that I was nominated," she recalls. "When the team was leaving for the event, they asked me about my travel plans. I had no idea how to go to Singapore, where to stay. I was too embarrassed to even ask my crew about ticket prices."

"So I missed that opportunity. When I won, Bobby Singh, DOP of Gangster and Queen, who is sadly no more, called and said he is getting my trophy," the actress remembers.

"I was thrilled and it's one of my fondest memories."
