The winners of 62nd National Film Awards were announced a while back and Kangana Ranaut has won the Best Actress award this year for her performance in Vikas Bahl’s directorial venture Queen.

The leggy beauty also congratulated Vishal Bhardwaj and Vikas Bahl for walking away with the coveted awards at the 62nd National Film Awards. While the former won in the Best Dialogues category for Haider, the latter’s film Queen was declared the Best Film (Hindi).
