8 things that nobody but birthday girl Kangana Ranaut could have done!
Happy Birthday Kangana Ranaut! As she turns 30 today, we are looking back at 7 kickass things that only Kangana could have done which make her, our favorite Bollywood badass!
Owning her accent like a boss!
Ever since Kangana entered Bollywood, her accent has been totally ridiculed for being fake and phony. But, that is not stopping her from going forward. Showing off some much needed self-confidence, Kangana once said, “Haan hai mera accent, toh kya hogaya? Yaha pe inko mera accent fake lagta hai, yeh log jab khud bahar jaate hain toh unko inka accent fake lagta hai (Yes, I have an accent so? They feel I have a fake accent and when they themselves go west, people then find their accents fake.)
Doing cut-throat films none of the other actresses ever do!
The girl from Himachal made her debut in Mahesh Bhatt’s Gangster and took home the best Filmfare debut award that year. After that, she went on to do another critically acclaimed film, Fashion. Ever since her debut, her roles have been no less than amazing. She picked on roles that were often trashed by other actresses and in fact, nobody could even have done better. You still wonder why she is one of the best finds in Bollywood.
Not shy of the dreaded 'female oriented' tag!
While other actresses are busy trying not to get stereotyped, Kangana is not hiding away under her roles! Be it Queen, Tanu weds Manu or Revolver Rani, her roles have been a slap against patriarchy. Seriously, if there was an award for revolutionizing Bollywood, we would give it away to Kangana!
Being a total badass!
One heck of a fierce woman she is! She is not afraid of the bullies, trolls or her competitors. She isn’t afraid to call down fellow celebs who talk about being ‘friendly’ with her. She once spoke about how celebs get misinterpreted for their views. Kangana said that "We, as Indians, have a knack for loving a stereotypical, sobbing, sympathy-seeking personality. So she feels the need to promote quirky, cool and youthful talent and stop propagating the sob-story angle of celebs, where they try to be larger-than-life. I cannot be a Sati-Savitri but a badass!”
Owning her hotness
The ‘Queen’ actress spoke bluntly at a recent event where she was conferred with the 'Woman of the Year' award. Pulling attention to her chiseled physique which she flaunted with grace in a beautiful polka-dotted off-shoulder dress, Kangana offered to make a confession that her hotness is so underrated. She asserted that even she goes to the gym, but nobody talks about her abs or asks about her diet. The ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ actress candidly joked about how it is a little unfair to her as no matter how many lingerie shoots she does, it is always with a spirit.
Taking her career further!
Kangana did not let her acting career limit her interest in the technical aspects of filmmaking. She enrolled herself at the prestigious New York Film Academy for a course in scriptwriting. She enjoyed having a normal life in New York where she could do her own cooking and laundry. She even penned down a script that she wants to make one day. Now that’s cool!
Standing upto Bollywood biggies
Kangana has been in the news for her ‘camaraderie’ with biggies in Bollywood. Be it her relationship with Aditya Pancholi or Hrithik Roshan, Kangana has never run away. She doesn’t believe in letting her relationship affect her career or her life. She says, “My life is just about me, not about those who are standing behind me.” Whatever be the truth in the affair that went wrong between Hrithik and her, you have to have guts to speak up and not hide away, just like Kangana did!
A hardworker through and through!
The birthday girl will be celebrating her 30th birthday at work! Yes, leading sources close to the actress have informed that Kangana will be shooting for the first look or poster of her upcoming film, ‘Manikarnika’, which is based on the life of warrior Rani Lakshmi Bai. What an interesting way to turn 30!
