‘In our industry, it becomes difficult to remain headstrong’, Says actress Kangana Ranaut

Kangana again speaks her heart openly. Watch out What she has to say this time.

  • Actress Kangana Ranaut is known to speak her mind despite the reactions her words elicit

Kangana Ranaut says, ‘it is difficult to remain “headstrong” in Bollywood as there are always people who try to make one “feel insignificant”. But she continues to fight it.

“Being an outsider in the business, I have fought to carve a niche for myself. I have also been opinionated and I choose to express my views openly,” Kangana Ranaut told.

“In our industry, it becomes difficult to remain headstrong as you are often judged for not following the status quo. There will always be a segment that will try to make you feel insignificant, but it is important to channel your strength and confidence and work hard to triumph. It’s important to grow a distinct voice to break the clutter,” added the National Award winner.

Kangana, a Reebok brand ambassador, is a part of the second edition of the brand’s #FitToFight campaign, which fights looming gender demons of eve-teasing and pays disparity.

The actress has been actively talking about her struggle in the industry as well as her relationships with actors like Aditya Pancholi and Hrithik Roshan. She tagged filmmaker Karan Johar as a “flagbearer of nepotism” during his chat show.

Does she consider herself “mentally tough and fit to fight”?
“Absolutely,” she said.
“My experiences in life, on the personal and professional fronts, have helped shape the individual I am today. There have been moments in my life when it was very difficult to continue working in unfavorable conditions. But I fought my way, to make a mark for myself.

“I realized the importance of being tough, both mentally and physically, which encouraged me to deliver my best regardless of the odds. In my journey, I learned that challenges may always beset you, but if one is strong-willed and determined, you can overcome them,” added Kangana Ranaut, often tagged the “Queen” of Bollywood.

In her last released film “Simran”, she played an imperfectly perfect girl who wants to lead life on her own terms. Does she think such characters hardly exist in real life where girls are always following the norm?
“My career trajectory is full of characters and films where I am trying to redefine the conventional heroine tag. I think it is important to reinvent oneself continuously and diversify your craft.

“I have been fortunate that I have worked in path-breaking films such as ‘Fashion’, ‘Tanu Weds Manu’, ‘Queen’ and ‘Simran’ where I play individualistic characters. I do know ‘Queen’ had a strong impact on viewers. I always choose to do roles where there is a message being delivered that makes the viewer think differently and shapes their choices,” said the actress, who will next be seen in “Manikarnika”.

She also feels “there are many women who aspire to dream bigger and better” and she is one of them. Kangana, who comes from a small town in Himachal Pradesh, says her circumstances never discouraged her from chasing her dreams.

“I encourage women to believe in their strength and value their hard work. My motto has always been to follow my own path and not succumb to norms. I believe it’s important to celebrate yourself and grow with each experience,” she said.
This is what she is trying to promote with the #FitToFight campaign.

“I hope to inspire other girls through my stories of courage, faith and conviction. I truly believe in the limitless potential that every woman possesses to be physical, mentally and socially fit. I do hope my story and journey of facing adversities, fighting obstacles and emerging stronger and fitter, will inspire other women to be Fit to Fight,” she said.(IANS)

Karan Johar recalled his first meeting with Shah Rukh Khan

Director Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan recently produced movie Ittefaq starring Sonakshi Sinha and Sidharth Malhotra. Both the producers decided not t hold promotional events in a shopping mall as it would lead to the revelation of movie’s suspense.

Recently in a small promotional event of Ittefaq, Karan Johar recalled his first meeting with Shah Rukh Khan in the office of director Anand Mahendroo to audition for his show Indraprastha. There he saw Shah Rukh Khan sitting on a sofa sipping tea. As the director Anand was in his shooting Karan and SRK had to wait for his work to get over.

Meanwhile, SRK was sitting and enjoying tea after tea, as soon as Anand’s shoot was over,  Anand came and walked to SRK and told him that it was a bit late on his part to meet him. SRK replied in a very soft tone ‘Nahi nahi koi baat nahi. I love the tea in your office. It is really delicious, and thus I could relish and gulp a few cups. But I waited only because I wanted to tell you that I will not be able to participate in this show. Thanks a lot’

Director Anand was shocked to know that Shah Rukh waited for four hours just to say NO to his show. This is how he met Shah Rukh for the first time.
