MUMBAI—Actress Kangana Ranaut says she is happy that her performance in "Rangoon" is being appreciated despite some of her "favorite scenes" from the film not making it to the final cut.

When asked how she felt about people noticing her performance, Ranaut said her hopes were shattered when director Vishal Bharadwaj had to explain to her why certain scenes couldn't be a part of the film.

"I didn't think (I'll be appreciated this much) because many of my favorite 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 told reporters.

"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," she added.

The film, which released on Feb. 24, also features Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan.

The "Tanu Weds Manu" star said expecting every film to do a certain-crore business is "vulgar."

"This is a business proposition, so all you want is that the investments should be recovered. The idea of business has become a little vulgar. With every film there is this expectation of doing Rs 100 crore. But it should be a beneficial business proposition for everyone."

The 29-year-old actress was speaking at a special event, where she introduced Insignia auditorium at INOX.
