I’m just a Homo sapien after all: Kangana Ranaut



kangana ranaut

Noida, May 29 : Her journey in filmdom has been a “roller-coaster ride”, and Kangana Ranaut likes it this way! Between the highs and lows of stardom, and amidst controversies, the National Award winning actress says being under a scanner constantly gets too much to handle at times because at the end of the day, she’s just a “Homo sapien”.

Talking about her decade-long journey in Hindi films, Kangana told IANS: “It’s been quite an open book…we’ve all witnessed it together. So, it has been quite a roller-coaster ride and honestly I don’t want it to be any other way.”

Of late, Kangana has been in the news for her legal spat with Hrithik Roshan. Does being under a constant watch by people bother her?

“Well, I think sometimes, a bit. I think sometimes a distant approach to a human being despite or in spite of them being celebrities, is needed,” said the Himachal Pradesh-born actress, who has no role model.

“I think there are no standards and parallels that I draw. There is no certain somebody that I want to live like or I would want to have a life similar to. So, my own standards is (are from) my own life.

“It (the attention and controversies) does get a little too much at times, but, like I said, the most beautiful thing about life is that it keeps moving on.

“I think, when very humanly things are being discussed about us (celebrities)… About how can her hair twist in that way, or how can her nose run… These things get slightly little too much because I am just a Homo sapien like you call it,” added the 29-year-old actress.

If she has had successes in the form of “Fashion”, “Tanu Weds Manu” and “Queen”, there have also been movies like “Game”, “Rascals” and “Katti Batti”, which did not fare well at the box office.

Kangana, who’s known for her style sense, says she takes opinions of a bona fide critic seriously.

“There are bona fide critics, who would give a critic and that would be actually valuable to a lot of people… so I respect it.”

What doesn’t impact her are opinions on social media.

“Social media is very different. That’s about a lot of personal space, where everyone has a personal opinion on everything. It is not something that is going to make a direct impact on anything.”

Kangana says she is not on social media platforms, but when she stumbles across a joke — even if it’s about her — she enjoys it.

“But do I want to take this seriously, and consider it? When a person is criticising a set of ideas, there is another dimension that your brain opens up to. Do I want to see it like that? No, may be not… Because they are not bona fide critics, they are just people like you and I,” she added.

Does she ever plan to join social media?

“I am really not a person who likes, what you call, say, junk communication! There are no valuable ideas being exchanged out there. That’s out of my very little understanding of social media,” said the actress, whose next film is Vishal Bhardwaj’s upcoming directorial “Rangoon”.

Just last week, Kangana was here to launch her fashion line Venice Cruise for European-high street fashion brand Vero Moda.

Asked if she ever plans to launch her own label, Kangana said: “That’s actually a huge responsibility. Having your own label actually is like setting up an industry of your own. It’s not easy to produce garments and it’s not easy to set up a team of people.”

Kangana also understands that “making garments is not just about designing”. Having said that, at some point, she would love to launch her own label.

“But right now I really don’t have the time and experience to set up my own brand.”


BJP preventing ‘moksha’ for Sushant’s soul: Congress




Sushant Singh Rajput No More

On the 35th birthday of Sushant Singh Rajput, the Maharashtra Congress on Thursday slammed the opposition BJP, alleging that because of its machinations, the late Bollywood actor’s soul is deprived of ‘moksha’ (salvation).

Paying homage to the memory of Sushant, Maharashtra Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said in his death on June 14, 2020, the film industry lost a highly talented and upcoming star and his loss would be felt for long.

Despite a period of eight months, the real reasons behind his death have not been revealed to the people of the country although three central agencies like CBI, Enforcement Directorate and Narcotics Control Bureau have been deployed for the probe, he said.

“However, this is also a time to remember how the BJP blatantly exploited his death for its dirty politics in Maharashtra and Bihar and gaining on other fronts. They used the incident to destabilise the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) in Maharashtra and misused his name to corner votes in the Bihar election last year,” Sawant alleged.

Blaming the BJP for “preventing ‘moksha’ for Sushant’s soul”, he alleged that the saffron party tried to manipulate his death to defame the Maharashtra government of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and misrepresented it to the masses in the Bihar election.

“For its political designs, the BJP has deployed CBI, ED and NCB, but nothing has come out their probes so far We have been repeatedly demanding that the CBI should table the facts before the country on what has emerged from its probe. Nothing has come out even in the investigations by ED, NCB,” Sawant pointed out.

He demanded to know why the CBI is silent on the circumstances leading to Sushant’s reported suicide, why the BJP politicised his death and attempted to portray it as a ‘murder’, what was the outcome of the ED-NCB probe which were brought into the case and other aspects.

Sawant rued that owing to the BJP, Sushant’s sou’ has not been allowed to “rest in peace” and he has also been deprived of the respect and honour due to him after his death.

Earlier, the ruling allies, Shiv Sena, Nationalist Congress Party, and Congress have consistently demanded that the CBI should reveal its findings in the case to clear the doubts in the minds of the people.

On its part, the CBI has responded by saying that it has not closed the Sushant death probe case and investigations still continue.
