From working with Saif and Shahid to not being on social media, Kangana Ranaut reveals it all

Kangana Ranaut

Actress Kangana Ranaut is a strong woman in real life and she has always stood by what she believes in. In spite of being in many controversies, the actress has shined with her spectacular performances in her movies.

As she is all geared up for her upcoming flick ‘Rangoon’ that is set to release on February 24, 2017, in a recent interaction with the media, she spoke candidly about her equation with her co-stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor and also spoke about why she never had an inclination for social media.

Read on to find out how Kangana gelled with her co-stars, her director Vishal Bhardwaj, why she believes the movie will click at the box office and much more.

Most challenging part of your role in ‘Rangoon’?

The character is an actress of that time and if you see the cinema in those days was very primitive. The silent films had just gone out of fashion and the sound had just come into motion picture, so the films were very primitive, in terms of the content, the execution and the overall feel of the film. The acting too was primitive so my character Julia has a bit of a nasal tone to her dialogue delivery. I also had to learn many things as she was a stunt woman.

How was the experience of working with Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor?

Apart from being eye-candies, they are very good actors and they are terrific. Their combination with Vishal Sir is also terrific.

Who are you more comfortable with, Saif or Shahid?

Both have their own charm. Saif is that classy man who would open the door for you and pull the chairs for you. Shahid will walk with head phones and tease you. So he has that boyish charm to him. I loved spending time with both of them.

You made a statement about nepotism on ‘Koffee With Karan 5’. What do you have to say on nepotism?

I don’t have a speech to give on nepotism, but I just stated the obvious.

‘Rangoon’ is a period drama film, do you think it will click at the box office?

Of course, and precisely why it’s a special film because there are so many films coming out every month, but none of them can brag about the kind of scale and authenticity that ‘Rangoon’ has. So, it’s a different film. Precisely why it has the possibility of having a longer run not just in theatres, but in people’s memories too.

Why are you not on social media?

I feel that social media is a bundle of contradictions. To interact with people you don’t have any personal equation with. I don’t understand what’s the interaction on what basis and on what level, it seems very business-oriented. I get a lot of inner themes like if you tweet you get this much money and all of that and to be on a platform where I actually have my personal opinion and to then sell my opinions like that is not something I’m comfortable with, because that’s not for sale. I’m projecting myself to be genuine through a set of people and it would be 20 million or 20 people and they think that this is what Kangana actually believes in. That opinion is being sold for a couple of lakhs and that’s a fact. So, I think I just can’t figure it out.

Any director on your wish-list?

Shoojit Sircar

Upcoming projects?

I’m doing ‘Rani Lakshmibai’ and ‘Simran’.

Sonam has THIS to say on 'PadMan' clashing with 'Padmaavat'

Actresses Sonam Kapoor and Deepika Padukone started off their Bollywood journey in the same year. Sonam made her debut opposite Ranbir Kapoor with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’ whereas Deepika made her debut with Farah Khan’s  ‘Om Shanti Om’ opposite Shah Rukh Khan.

Both the movies clashed at the box office then. It’s been a decade that these actresses have mesmerized us with their performances, Sonam in ‘Raanjhana’, ‘Neerja’ whereas Deepika in ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘RamLeela’ respectively. After a decade, the actresses are all set to clash at the box office again with ‘Padmaavat’ and ‘PadMan’ clashing this Republic Day weekend. (Also Read: Deepika and Sonam all set to clash at the box office after a decade. Who will win this time?)

So, at a recent media interaction for her forthcoming film ‘PadMan’, when the actress was asked that again after 10 years, her film would be clashing with Deepika Padukone’s ‘Padmaavat’ here’s what Sonam had to say, “According to me, there has been no official statement from the Producer, the PR or Sanjay Leela Bhansali that the film is releasing on January 25, 2018. So till that official statement doesn’t come, I don’t think there is any point commenting on it.”

On the contrary, officials from Viacom 18 have confirmed that director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ will be releasing on January 25, the same day when ‘PadMan’ releases. And it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Sonam smartly dodged the question related to her contemporary Deepika Padukone.

Well, we would like to wish both the actresses for their movies ‘PadMan’ and ‘Padmaavat’ respectively.
