Kangana Ranaut spoke at length about her agenda of being an actor.

14 september, 2017 Hot News

Kangana Ranaut is one badass actor who never believes in mincing her words. She puts her point forward regardless of who the person is in front of her.

During an interaction with a leading daily, when Kangana was asked about her agenda, she stated, "Most people expect me to be like, now that you are promoting, just stick to your business. But the point is, who are you tell me what my business is? If I am entirely here only for movies then why did I reject Khan films? Why do not I care to work with Karan Johar? Why do not I go get awards, if just thats my business? But I do not care about my business, cant you tell? So who are you to tell me what my business should be? I am here in the capacity of a woman, and my personality as a woman is a lot more valuable to me than my business of my films. Like I have said no to 300-crore films. Its not like they became 300-crore films and I regret it, they were always 300 crore on paper also. I mean, cant you tell that I really dont care about the business of my films? Especially, like I said after I hit rock bottom and realised that actually, it really doesnt matter, because people have loved me as an individual. So I have to make sure that when somebody points a finger at your character as a woman, you have got to respond to that."

When asked about what people working with her might think of her ideology, Kangana said, "No, but like I said, I already have four offers. Its not even relevant to them either. I am an actor, I will get a job regardless. So anyone who thinks that a profession is of ones character and dignity is just an idiot who doesnt know how to live life. Life is not about tricks and techniques. Life is about finding yourself, and finding peace with that."

The talented actor explained the meaning of being a successful actor by saying, "The thing is, see, what is the definition of success? I want to ask a successful person. If you are crawled in your little hell hole, and you do not have a voice, you are shit scared of losing whatever little you have earned in life, you are the most unsuccessful person in life. I want to tell these people that I have made this conscious decision that I set out to just discover myself and be like... you know, I dont subscribe to this, first papas ghar and then husbands ghar and then thats just the cycle of my life. I just wanted to be an independent girl. But now at this point, at 30, I have earned a lot more than that. And its a conscious decision you make ki yaar, I had just come ki mujhe thoda kaam mil jaye, bahut hai mere liye. And today I am one of the most successful actors, I am among the highest paid, I have won so many awards, I have even set records. Toh ab mujhe kis cheez ka darr hai?"

Kangana concluded by saying, "Their lives are very limited. And thats why, like I said, I am more than happy to let go of this industry. And why? Because I dont have an iota of respect for it. And they can tell. And thats why they dont like me. And my genuine reason for not liking this industry is very personal. And I always say, if I stay, good for them, if I dont, good for me (laughs)! This kind of freedom also comes from the fact that Im ready to move into another phase of my life, which can comprise anything. I can turn an author, or I can direct the kind of film I want once in a while, or I can do organic farming - I have built a beautiful house in Manali. But the thing is if a certain industry doesnt have, you know, you dont have any respect, or pride or even gratitude, why do you want to live like that? We dont give back to the country enough. And there are very few films that address what the nation should be. There are very few that are actually made for the hinterland, the real India. So we really need to buckle up and earn our respect as an industry."
