Only a few newcomers get the plum roles in the early stages of their acting career as Kangana Ranaut has.
In her very first film in Bollywood, Kangana left her mark in a role that proved a litmus test for her acting skills. Anurag Basu’s Gangster got critical acclaim and Kangana’s acting career was on the roll.
This beautiful girl from Himachal doesn’t believe in taking roles that merely require her to look pretty and dance around the trees.
That explains Kangana’s second movie, Woh Lamhe , in which she plays a schizophrenic actress. The film is loosely based on the relationship between late actress Parveen Babi and filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt . While Kangana plays Babi’s character, Shiney Ahuja plays the filmmaker.
After these two films with the Bhatt’s production house, Vishesh Films, Kangana is moving on and working with other producers and directors as well.
She has almost completed the shooting of Suneel Darshan’s next movie Shakalaka Boom Boom in Johannesburg.
Apart from this, she has clinched a three-movie deal with UTV.
One of these three films will be Anurag Basu’s Metro . The movie will have Kangana co-starring with some talented and senior actors like Kay Kay Menon Konkana Sen , Shilpa Shetty and Shiney Ahuja.
Another one of these three films will be directed by David Dhawan .
About her progress in Bollywood so far, Kangana says she is “very satisfied” with the way things have gone till now. She also makes it clear that she is interested in acting-oriented roles only.
