Some have it easy and some have it tough. Actress Kangana Ranaut has in an interview spoken out about how she has to struggle for everything in her life, and that she would not wish her loved ones to have the kind of life she has had. Kangana, who plays Rani Laxmibai in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, also spoke about her movie and the character she is playing.
The 31-year-old actor, who was in the news recently for speaking out against producer Vikas Bahl and the sexual harassment allegations made against him, also said that it has been a tough journey for her.
“Rani Laxmibai had to fight so much. I would not wish that life for anyone I love. Also, I won’t want my children to have the kind of life I have had. I don’t know why but I have to fight for everything in my life,” Ranaut was quoted as saying.
“I don’t get anything without fighting for it. I am neither proud, nor ashamed, I’m pretty fine with how my life is. But if you ask me if I want this for my children or my loved ones, then no,” she said at the wrap party of the biopic, directed by Krish.
Kangana took over the project as the original director was unavailable to re-shoot the period drama. The actor said she initially found the process difficult but later things fell into place.
“Every film has its own journey and so does Manikarnika. It’s true that there were some problems in the beginning but we are strong and hence we had a chance to celebrate it. We have all struggled a lot to complete the project,” she said.
“It’s good for me because it was accidental that I had to direct rest of the portions. I was initially taken aback. But when I began the process, I started enjoying it. We were not getting dates of other actors too. But everything has a story behind it. In the end, it has been pretty fine,” she added.
Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, which was supposed to release in April this year, will now hit the big screens on January 25, 2019.
