Profoundly called the Queen of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut, who will be seen playing the role of Jwala Devi aka Julia in her upcoming movie Rangoon confirms that she was indeed approached for Majid Majidi’s Beyond the Clouds which also marks the debut of Shahid’s brother Ishaan Khattar, in an interview to a leading tabloid.
Recently, B-Town was abuzz with speculations of Ranaut rejecting the Iranian filmmaker’s offer afterDeepika Padukone failed to bag the role despite giving a look test. Confirming the news, the National Award winning actress said, “It’s a brother-sister story where the brother is the one doing all the fighting. Since I’m jumping straight into Ketan Mehta’s Jhansi ki Rani, who was an iconic heroine, why would I take on such a submissive role?”
Kangana, known for her bold and bindass on and off screen persona, has always landed herself in several controversies due to her outspokenness. Latest being her comment on Rangoon co-star Shahid Kapoorwhere she earnestly admitted to have felt disgusted shooting intimate scenes with the actor as he was having a running nose.
With more than two solo hits in her kitty, Kangana has set a precedent for all aspiring actresses who do not have a godfather in the industry. Her career graph is nothing less than an inspiration to many.
At the time when actors take the diplomatic route, Kangana did not mince her words while calling out nepotism that prevails in the film industry, during her appearance on Karan Johar’s chat show Koffee with Karan. And, we surely love her candidness!
