Kangana Ranaut, one of India’s most successful and highest-paid actresses, was initially aspiring to become a doctor. However, by the time she was 16, she realized it was not her calling and therefore, moved to Delhi to pursue a career in modeling. After training with renowned theatre director Arvind Gaur, Kangana shifted her base to Mumbai and made her feature film debut with Gangster (2006). Fashion, released in 2008, became a turning point in her career and she even received a National Film Award for her performance in the film. After a series of flops, another turning point of Kangana’s career was Queen (2014). The film not only won her accolades at all major award functions but also placed her among the A-listers of Bollywood. She is the recipient of three National Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards. In 2017, she courted controversy for calling Karan Johar the “flagbearer of nepotism” on his talk show Koffee With Karan. She also got mired in controversies for disclosing her alleged relationship with Hrithik Roshan, which the latter denies.
