Kangana Ranaut: Films are not meant to make people fashion-oriented or glorify their beauty

Read on to know what else does the newest fashionista of B-town have to say

She played a fashion disaster in Queen, a style victim in Revolver Rani and Kangana Ranaut says she is not scared of stepping into non-glamorous roles if they offer a chance to perform. The 27-year-old actor, who won the audience’s love and critical acclaim for both of her films, says there is a misconception that heroines should look beautiful on-screen.

“Films are not meant to make people fashion-oriented or glorify their beauty. Films are about good stories and it could be of anyone. It could also be of an ugly girl,” Kangana told in an interview. Actor Sonam Kapoor had recently said in a chat show that if a person is not good looking, they are considered as good actors in Bollywood. The National-award winning actor said rather than her looks in her last outing ‘Revolver Rani’, where she played a corrupt politician, Kangana was more skeptical about the genre of the film.

“‘Revolver Rani’ is a non-genre film and I was a bit sceptical because I know that these films are very hard to accept in the society.

“Today, the kind of age and time we are living in we should start doing some good writing because I feel that our films are very regressive and repeat the same old formula,” she added.

The ‘Fashion’ star was in the capital to receive the actor of the year honour at NDTV’s Indian of the year award. The trophy was handed to her by superstar Aamir Khan.

Kangana, who seldom attends award functions said, “It’s credible to be a part of this honour. I said no initially. But later I felt that I should attend this because it’s not one of those filmy awards. Here, they acknowledge people on every level and from every field.”

The actor is enjoying a good phase in her career and has also signed Sai Kabir’s next project Divine Lovers opposite Irrfan Khan.

“This is really beautiful time of my life. I have never been respected and treated like the way I am right now. People really have acknowledged what I have done. Doing good films are my priority and I like what I do,” she said.
