Kangana Ranaut made a lot of headlines in 2018 and mostly not for her movies. She admits that last year been very horrible for her, yet she keeps her hopes high from 2019. She recently spoke to DNA about her experiences and controversy that she met with in 2018. Last year Kangana didn’t have a single release but she remained in headlines for umpteen other reasons including the Manikarnika-Sonu Sood fallout. While talking about her ill experiences from last year, Kangana said, “People were trying to put me behind bars, can you believe that? They should make a film on my life also (laughs uncontrollably).” She added, “I have had a really horrible time and I hope it changes this year. My films weren’t working, cases were filed against me; it was going really downhill, till a point, it couldn’t go any further down. But you never know; life has a way of surprising you.”
Kangana Ranaut is now gearing up for her next release Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Also, the actress has many other films in her kitty. She will also be seen opposite her Queen co-star Rajkummar Rao in Mental Hai Kya. Apart from this, she has been roped in for an Ashwini Iyer Tiwari film Panga.
Kangana Ranaut said that despite being single, she doesn’t feel lonely at all. She said, “At times I did feel cornered, especially after Simran’s failure. Script writer Apurva Asrani, filmmakers Ketan Mehta, Karan Johar and Rakesh Roshan and some others singled me out for criticism. The industry was having these intense meetings to make sure I was put in my place. Probably that was the only phase when I felt suffocated.”
She talked about how people from the fraternity targeted her for speaking her heart out. She said, “It makes me feel suffocated even now when I think about it. Ketan went to the Economic Offences Wing (EOW), Aditya Pancholi filed a case and Rakesh Roshan continued to say he would ‘reveal’ something. However, all of this didn’t go anywhere. The EOW withdrew the case. Nothing came out of that propaganda they did. As for nepotism, Karan had to apologise.”
Kangana Ranaut’s Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi will release on January 25.
