Kangana is one actress who has paved her own path in Bollywood, taking every criticism in her stride. Despite being termed as an “unwanted object” and constantly mocked for her peculiar English accent, she celebrated her uniqueness and proved her mettle with hits like ‘Queen’, ‘Fashion’ and ‘Tanu Weds Manu’. As Kangana experienced a lot of failures in her opening years in Bollywood, she understands the value of it. She says: “Success doesn’t come with any kind of pressure as she feels that failure doesn’t reflect your credibility as an artiste.”
In recent years, her choice of films has been quite selective and right. She adds:
“I don’t pick a project thinking that it will elevate my position in the industry. I haven’t set any standards that I have to do this work or this is where I have to go. I don’t put that kind of pressure on myself. What I tell myself is that I will continue (on the path). I think I am the only top actress probably who has done B-grade films.”
For her, growth as an artist matters the most.
“You can be giving flops and still be a very valuable artiste and that is the case with me.”
She is currently shooting for Hansal Mehta’s ‘Simran’ in Atlanta. Also, her next release ‘Rangoon’ which she calls a “cinematic orgasm for cinematic lovers” is slated to release in January 2017.
