‘Koffee With Karan 5’: 10 times Kangana Ranaut proved she is the queen of the couch
On Dangal's Success
During one of the sections of the show, Karan asked Kangana and Saif whether they have ever been jealous of any other actor’s success. While Saif straightaway said no, Kangana openly admitted to being jealous of Aamir Khan’s success with 'Dangal' that made a whopping 700 crore (approx) at the box office.
On Karan mocking her on the couch
Karan revealed that he never thought anything would happen with Kangana. He thought that she was lovely in 'Gangster' and then there were certain choices that happened which is sometimes destiny and sometimes circumstance related. Kangana then took a dig at him saying, "Of course you made fun of my English on this couch and you made fun of everything.”
The Khan on Kangana's wishlist
Unlike other actresses, Kangana's answer was, “Not Shah Rukh, not Salman, not Aamir.”
Confessing of fighting with directors
With reference to directors, the actress said how normal it is to have creative differences. "If a set does not have creative conflict then something is not going right. It's not about taking instructions, and going about doing things and pleasing people, it's about really collaborating and diving into it. I think my directors really like that about me. And the ones who don't, I don't like them either," Kangana said.
On a girl kissing her
Kangana was asked if she has been experimental in sex with someone of the same gender. Karan added, "I think you're a girl from my hood darling. Sometimes, we could all take some chances." Kangana then confessed that a girl had actually kissed her. "A girl has kissed me. I was in California and there was a Spanish girl who fell in love with me. I was drunk and she kissed me. But the sad story is that the next day she showed up in my hotel and said that she's in love."
On Saif playing Fawad's role in 'Kaooor & Sons'
Karan revealed on the show that it was Saif who was first offered Fawad Khan’s role in 'Kapoor & Sons', to which Kangana was shocked. She said, “I would have loved to see you (Saif) do the role. I love Fawad. He was really good.”
On accusing Karan of nepotism
Even the show's host wasn't spared by Kangana's allegations and when asked about her biopic, she said, “In my biopic, if it ever gets made, you will play that typical Bollywood biggie who is snooty and completely intolerant to outsiders, flag-bearer of nepotism, movie mafia…”
On Shahid Kapoor's nature
While there are rumours of Shahid and Kangana not getting along that well, the episode did not quite see so as the two were pretty comfortable in each other's company. The actress also revealed how Shahid is extremely moody. She said, “There are days he would be in a very good mood, get breakfast from home for the entire cast and crew and then there are days when he’s in an equally bad mood. He will look at you as if you’re a suicide bomber.”
On Aditya Chopra's praises for her
The actress revealed to Aditya Chopra calling her at his office to praise her. She said, “A year ago, I remember Aditya Chopra called me to his studio, we sat across the table and he told me, ’10 years ago when you came to my office with Rikku Rakesh Nath, I said iss ladki ka kuch nahi hone wala. Today I am so glad to tell you that I was so wrong. You have made it and you have made it on your own.' I am very happy about it."
Her take on friendships in the industry
The actress openly confessed to having no friends in the industry and said, “Initially I did and it got complicated. Friendships at work have only harmed me and my work.”
