When Bollywood’s Queen: Kangana Ranaut was asked about the prompting reason behind the film choices in earlier stages of her career, she said,
“I did tacky films, took on roles I did not deserve, accepted guest appearances, so my sister could be treated by the best surgeon in India. It took 54 surgeries.”
Taking wise decisions is a talent that comes with time. And more the one struggles in life more he/she takes wise decisions.
Talking about Kangana’s personality. She is one of those rare human elements in Bollywood who speak exactly what is on their mind whether it is about the prevalent gender wage gap in the industry or her choice of films or the politics of the country.
Kangana’s upcoming Bollywood flick: Panga is set to debut on box office this Friday. In this flick, she plays the role of a Kabaddi player. She was giving an interview and there she opened about her struggles when she left home and how she dealt with her early days in Bollywood and the acid attack on her sister Rangoli.
“I was just 19, on the threshold of a bright career, when the attack happened and it was a long, hard struggle to deal with this kind of perverse, sexist cruelty. Financially too, I was not strong back then. Girls around me would feel depressed by a bad hair day or because a meal was not to their liking. I was grappling with something far more real and yet had no time to sit and cry. I did tacky films, took on roles I did not deserve, accepted guest appearances, so my sister could be treated by the best surgeon in India. It took 54 surgeries.”
Kangana further opened up about her experiences that made her a strong and independent woman she is today.
These were her words,
“I fell into bad company straight away. Some people took advantage of the fact that I was alone and couldn’t confide in my parents, and I’ve experienced the worst a person can go through. It toughened me up and made me the person I am. But I wouldn’t want my children to go through such extremes. I would want to be there for them.”
