The ceremony to honour Padma awardees with took place at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. Among the awardees are Kangana Ranaut, Adnan Sami, Ekta Kapoor, Karan Johar and late singer SP Balasubramaniam.

While Ekta Kapoor dedicated her Padma Shri to her parents, Kangana said her award will silence many people. “I am grateful. When I had started my career at a young age, it took me 8-10 years to taste success. But when I finally became successful, I did not enjoy that but launched myself into other issues. I shunned fairness products, items numbers, working in movies with popular male leads and with production houses. I made more enemies than I made money,” she said in a video she uploaded on Instagram.

Karan Johar had written, “It’s not very often that I am at a loss for words, but this is one such occasion…The Padma Shri. Such an honour to receive one of the civilian awards in the country. Overwhelmed by so many emotions right now. Humbled, elated and also thankful for the opportunity to live my dream every day, to create and to entertain. I know my father would be proud and I wish he was here to share this moment with me. #blessed.”

Harshvardhan Kapoor is also celebrating her birthday today. Arjun Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor, among others, wished the actor on his big day.
