Kangana Ranaut says even when an actor delivers flops he or she can be still be very valuable to the industry,
“I haven’t set any standards that I have to do this work or this is where I have to go. I don’t put that kind of pressure on myself. What I tell myself is that I will continue (on the path). I think I am the only top actress probably who has done B-grade films,” Kangana said.
The Queen star who has scored back-to-back box office successes says for her, success doesn’t come with any kind of pressure as she feels that failure doesn’t reflect your credibility as an artiste.
She also said that she doesn’t pick a project thinking that “it will elevate her position in the industry”.
She added: “I don’t see that a certain project can ascend to a certain position. You can be giving flops and still be a very valuable artiste and that is the case with me.”
Coming from a village near Manali, Kangana entered tinsel town with no filmi connection, and went ahead to make a place for herself in Bollywood.
She proved her talent and versatility with films like “Gangster”, “Woh Lamhe”, “Life In A… Metro”, “Tanu Weds Manu” and “Fashion”.
There were a few setbacks but she bounced back with the release of “Queen” which she followed up with a double blast via “Tanu Weds Manu Returns”.
The actress is busy shooting for Hansal Mehta’s “Simran”. According to reports, Kangana will be seen as a 30-year-old divorcee in the movie, for which she is currently shooting in Atlanta, US.
Kangana, who is known for her brazen honesty, feels “it really doesn’t matter what films you do, what matters is how you do them”.
For now, the actress is busy with “Simran”, and added that she has “signed few films and they are very exciting films lined up so I will take one at a time”.
Kangana has established a career in Bollywood and is one of the highest-paid actresses in India. Ranaut is particularly known in the media for expressing her honest opinions in public and is frequently credited as one of the most fashionable Indian celebrities.
She is the recipient of several awards, including three National Film Awards and Filmfare Awards in four categories. – CINEWS
