Kangana Ranaut reasons why she rejected Majid Majidi’s ‘Beyond the Clouds’

Majid Majidi’s ‘Beyond the Clouds’ which marks the debut of Shahid Kapoor’s brother Ishaan Khatter, was offered to none other than our Queen of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut. However, the actress rejected the offer because she was not keen on doing a film in which she has a submissive role.

The actress said, “It’s a brother-sister story where the brother is the one doing all the fighting. Since I’m jumping straight into Ketan Mehta’s ‘Jhansi Ki Rani’, who was an iconic Heroine, why would I take on such a submissive role?”

The film was also offered to Deepika Padukone and the actress had also given a look test for the film. While some reports say that it was Majid who opted not to cast her in the film, some say that it was the actress who was not keen on doing the film as the role was not a meaty one. (Also Read: Oops!

Kangana is currently busy with the promotions of Vishal Bhardwaj’s ‘Rangoon’. The movie which also stars Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan is slated to hit the screens on February 24.
