Kangana Ranaut says she is happy that her performance in Rangoon is being appreciated but was quoted saying, "I didn't think (I'll be appreciated this much) because many of my favourite scenes, which were important for my graph, were chopped off. I prepare my character's graph in a linear pattern and when I saw the film, Vishal sir explained why he cut those scenes."
She added, "Of course, it was a very legitimate thing to do. But when I got to know several top-notch scenes of my graph have been cut, all my hopes were shattered. I thought now my work will be so-so, it won't be appreciated that much. But despite that people are loving it. I am very happy."
