Kangana Ranaut is known to be very frank in whatever she has to say. She doesn’t ever shy away from calling a spade a spade. Recently, at the NDTV Youth For Change Conclave, Ranaut spoke about various things including the Simran controversy, award shows and big cities.
When asked if she had contributed to the direction of the film, she said, “I have not done anything to do with direction in ‘Simran’. I have acted in it and written it. If I had directed the film, I would have proudly said it, but I have not done it.”
Ranaut comes from a small town in Himachal Pradesh and from a non-filmy background, so of course her experience hasn’t been the greatest of them all. “Big cities are money-oriented, small towns are more concerned about what people –buaji, mausiji — will say? I come from an extreme environment, a conservative background. I felt stifled and just wanted to be free,” she said.
Finally, she spoke about awards and how even after films like fashion, Tanu Weds Manu, and Queen, her self isn’t full. “There is a lot of manipulation in our award shows. Like they will tell you in advance that you will get this award, but will ask to perform for them. I try to stay away from all this,” she said and concluded.
There isn’t one point where we don’t agree with Kangana.
