Kangana Ranaut: Others’ opinions don’t matter to me


Talented and outspoken actress Kangana Ranaut, who is riding high on the success of her latest film “Tanu Weds Manu Returns “, says people’s opinion about her doesn’t make a difference to her.

Asked if people’s outlook towards her has changed ever since she charmed the audiences and critics with “Queen” and now “Tanu Weds Manu Returns”, she said: “Other people’s opinions do not matter to me…if they did matter, I wouldn’t have lasted till now.”

“If I would have got affected, I would be full of irrational doubts. I do have a strong sense of what can be achieved and what cannot.”

However, she minced no words when she said that “people’s perception towards me is a revelation after ‘Queen'”.

“People felt I was talented. I was surprised because I thought everyone knew from before that I was talented… with films like ‘Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai’, ‘Woh Lamhe’, ‘Life in a… Metro’, ‘Tanu Weds Manu’, ‘Queen’… I kept proving myself.”

“I thought there was no doubt about my acting abilities. So, the reaction after ‘Queen’ was a revelation to me,” she added.

Kangana, who had earlier bagged a National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress for “Fashion”, says she wasn’t expecting the Best Actress National Award for “Queen”.
