Kangana Ranaut birthday: 7 bold statements by the ‘Queen’ of Bollywood
Bollywood’s firebrand actress Kangana Ranaut is celebrating her 32nd birthday today. The girl from Himachal Pradesh has created a niche for herself in the industry and believes in calling a spade a spade. Let’s look back at Kangana’s 7 bold statements over the years.
Kangana calling Karan Johar a ‘flag bearer of nepotism’:
The ‘Queen‘ actress while replying to a question said, “In my biopic if it is ever made, you (Karan) will play this stereotypical Bollywood biggie who is very snooty and completely intolerant to outsiders and flag bearer of nepotism, the movie mafia. You will have a huge part to play in my biopic. I like the antagonist in you in my biopic.” The rest they say is history.
Kangana taking on Hrithik Roshan:
Kangana Ranaut’s saga with Hrithik Roshan has been going on for ages. The actress had said that they used to be in a relationship but Hrithik always denied it. The actress attacked Hrithik further by saying that such men keep their wives as trophies and keep young girls as mistresses. Later on, they prove them as mad.
‘Queen’ actress hitting out at Sonam Kapoor for judging her:
The diva apparently was not impressed with Sonam Kapoor and gave the ‘Aisha’ actress a piece of her mind.
Sonam Kappor, at an event, was talking about the #MeToo movement and said that it is hard to take Kangana seriously sometimes. However, Sonam also expressed that she likes Kangana’s spunk. This was in context of sexual harassment allegations against director Vikas Bahl.
Furious with Sonam’s comment on her, Kangana fired back at the ‘Neerja’ actress. The actress said Sonam has no business or right to judge her. She wondered what gives Sonam the license of trusting some women and not others. The ‘Fashion’ actress also questioned Sonam’s IQ level.
Kangana further went on to say that Sonam is not a good actress or a good speaker, and as such, she doesn’t have the credibility to pass judgement on a celebrated actress like herself.
Kangana blasting her ex Adhyayan Suman:
Kangana Ranaut, in an interview with Rajat Sharma, said that beating Adhyayan Suman up wouldn’t have been a bad idea. “He was 95 kgs and I was of 49 kgs. How could I ever hit him? I wouldn’t be able to. However, now that I look at it, I should have hit him,” she said. This after, Adhyayan Suman had earlier accused Kangana of practising black magic and even physically hitting him.
Kangana taking on #MeToo accused Vikas Bahl:
As the #MeToo movement in India was gathering momentum, director Vikas Bahl’s name came up as an alleged sexual harasser. The actress, who had worked with Vikas in ‘Queen’ said, “Even though Vikas was married back in 2014, when we were filming ‘Queen’, he bragged about having casual sex with a new partner every other day. I don’t judge people and their marriages but you can tell when addiction becomes a sickness. He partied every night and shamed me for sleeping early and not being cool enough.”
Kangana added that he would get a little too close for comfort at times. “I often told him off. He was scared of me but still every time we met, socially greeted and hugged each other, he’d bury his face in my neck and hold me really tight and breathe in the smell of my hair. It took me a great amount of strength and effort to pull myself out of his embrace. He’d say, ‘I love how you smell K’,” she said.
Kangana Ranaut training guns on Bollywood:
This is only something Kangana Ranaut can do! The ‘Gangster’ actress trained her guns on the industry at India Today Conclave 2019.
Kangana very candidly and forthrightly said, “We all know that Bollywood, the film industry is classist and so is the rest of the society. The system works for certain people the way it is. It is definitely going to resist when you are going to challenge it.”
Kudos to Kangana for calling out her own industry’s bluff.
Ms Ranaut vs Karan Johar: Round II:
At the same conclave, Kangana took another shot at KJo. The three-time national award-winning actress said, “Karan mocked me on the IIFA stage and said that I am jobless and I am looking for jobs from him or something like that. I mean, look at my talent and look at your movies. I mean, really? He really called me jobless on some platform? I think some people need a dose of chyavanprash.”
