Kangana Ranaut is an outsider who happened to break into films by fluke with Anurag Basu's 2006 'Gangster- a Love story'. Even after doing series of big films, Kangana struggled to find a solid foothold in Bollywood. "No matter what I do, I will always be an outsider in Bollywood and I can't change that. I don't even want to. That's the reality. People too will have to come to terms with it."
She once also said, “Why should Bollywood accept me? I should accept Bollywood. I don’t care if Bollywood has accepted me, I don’t seek acceptance. I don’t live up to anybody’s expectations.”
Success hasn’t come easy for Kangana Ranaut and it is after a lot of struggle that she has made it to where she is. Even on personal front, her life hasn’t been a walk on the bed of roses. She was allegedly in a relationship with different men at different points. Speaking about her relationships, she once said, "Relationships can be very trumatic. But being in the healthy relationship can be very empowering."
She candidly said, my boyfriend asked me once, "how do you know everything about my life. It's black magic!" "It's telepathic. If my love is psycho then it's fine. I'll find someone else. I am happy being called a witch."
"I have never gotten the privilege to dump anyone. I always got dumped," the actress once confessed.
When it comes to fashion, Kangana is a trend-setter in the industry; it’s quite notable that Kangana brings her A-game to the fore, in terms of her impeccable style presence. She said, "The modern woman is smart, confident and independent. She has her own opinions and a strong sense of identity. Today’s women know how to express themselves and carry their attitude with unmatched style."
“Style is a way of expressing oneself and my style should tell the world who I am. I just need to be comfortable and confident in what I wear and that’s half the battle won."
Kangana Ranaut was all fiery in her debut episode on filmmaker Karan Johar's coffee show. The actress accused Johar of nepotism in the film industry. Talking about her biopic, Kangana said that Karan will be a Bollywood biggie who is snooty, intolerant to outsiders, flag bearer of nepotism and a movie mafia in it. She sees him as the antagonist in her life who led her to chase her dreams fiercely.
On being a Nationalist
The three time National Award winning actress who calls herself a nationalist once said, "The Americans stand for their national anthem. Why do we feel ashamed of standing? If you want to learn something from Americans then learn good things from them."
"I am a big Modi fan because of his success story. As a young woman I do believe that we need to have right role models. I mean the graph and the ambition of an ordinary man and whenever we have a PM who is a chaiwala, and then I always say that it is not his victory but it is the victory of our democracy. I feel he is the right role model."
"I feel politics is a wonderful field, though it is often misunderstood. But what I don't like is the fashion sense of politicians."
An ode to her free thinking and boldness, wishing Kangana Ranaut a very happy birthday. Keep shining!
