Kangana Ranaut has been in the news for various controversies, but in this conversation, we focused on what acting means to her. She discusses actors and directors, good, bad and indifferent, as well as her penchant for speaking her mind and not caring about who she offends. In a room full of film aspirants, Kangana talks about what she’s done to better her craft, how she has managed to bounce back from failures, and a backup plan if her movie career fails. Her films reveal her as an artist with boundless ambition, and I am excited to see what she creates next.
(Excerpts of the conversation with Kangana Ranaut…)
Anupama Chopra (AC): Kangana, since we last spoke, you have been mired in controversies. There is a writer who says you have stolen his film, there is a director who says you have stolen his…umm… film, again, then there is nepotism which keeps going on, and then there is, of course, the whole Hrithik Roshan thing, but I don’t want to talk about any of that.
