Kangana Ranaut, who is in headlines for her no-holds barred interview with Rajat Sharma in Aap Ki Adaalat and candid talks, is also busy promoting her film SIMRAN which is set to hit the screens this Friday.
We are aware that QUEEN of Bollywood Kangana Ranaut's last film RANGOON didn't do well at the box office. Kangana was pinning hopes on RANGOON that it would do well.
During media interactions she went on to say, how she takes failure to heart and how she deals with it. ''With the failure of RANGOON, it affected me a lot. I had worked very hard and so, I had a lot of expectations from it. I had a reality check too. When I left my hometown, I expected to achieve certain things. I have done a lot more than that and so, my dreams have grown since. I have become too hard on myself and so, RANGOON's failure taught me to relax a little to stop this vicious cycle. Apart from that, with the recent occurrences, I've realized the worst has already happened and so, I don't really mind anymore,'' Kangana said.
On being asked if there is a conscious decision of not working with well-established actors, ''Well, if I am giving my time to a film and working hard, I would like to be the lead. I've had experiences working with well-established actresses and the outcome hasn't been very good.''
When asked her if she is scared to lose her stardom, she averred, ''I have acted upon my fears when I was struggling and trying to discover myself, who I am. But now I feel extremely satisfied with my discovery about myself, my inherent nature, about who I am as a woman and what my tendencies and capabilities are. I left home with none of the knowledge when I was 15 but at the age of 30 I know a lot about me. And there is a sense of accomplishment, I am a three- time National Award winner, I have shattered box office records. Even if my journey ends here right now, I have nothing to lose. I still have a huge success story in every which ways for the rest of my life. Why should I be fearful now? When I left home I wanted to be independent, now I am a megastar. I am a household name. I am a woman who knows herself which was the biggest challenge for me. If I am going to be fearful now, I am going to be fearful my entire life.''
Moving further she said, ''What is it that this industry can give me? This industry can only take from me, it cannot give me anything. If my journey ends here, then it's too bad. If it continues, then good for them. I will do something else in some or other field. I have a lot of faith in my abilities and I am not scared. I am not captivated by this world and no one can pull my spirit down."
Not many know that the hard and tough Kangana unwinds herself at a hill station and seeks peace there. ''I have built a beautiful house in Manali and I look forward to spending time there, write books and once in a while direct a film,'' shared the actress on a parting note.
