“I have been there (at the National Film Awards) before, and unfortunately I wore an anarkali suit that time. The thing is I have that photograph (of the president presenting the award to me) and I look like a ‘behenji’ (not fashionable). I thought, ‘I am a star, so I have to look like a star’.

“Everyone said you can’t wear Bibhu Mohapatra with a cape and go to this ceremony. I said, ‘I don’t care! I want a good picture!’. It was fun but it was quite a task to smuggle a cape to the venue,” she said, adding that she eventually got a good photograph from the ceremony.

The actress was in the city to promote “Tanu Weds Manu Returns”, which releases on May 22.
