The more higher big names go up the success ladder, the more scrutiny they face with the outside world. One such being who seems to be the facing this more than she expected, is actress Kangna Ranaut, who has more than once been targeted by the media in a negative way.
With the recent rumours being based on her apparent negative attitude towards the makers of her forthcoming Vishal Bhardwaj directorial��’Rangoon’, Ranaut��has expressed how she tries to look pass such things being said. “I was just talking to Vishal about it. He told me just this one thing, ‘Ignore those people who are talking negative things about you. Shoot them down with your performance.’ That gave me a lot of confidence. These negative things said about me are working like a blessing in disguise. ‘Rangoon’ started like any other film, but there are so many negative things being said about it that it is only bringing all of us together. I won’t deny that I get really affected by these things. It was just another project for me, but when I saw the support that the team is showing, it has become special for me,”��NDTV reported the actress stating.
Ranaut’s career journey hasn’t been easy. After having struggled to to prove herself, she is finally getting the roles which are getting her noticed. However, when she was dreaming of success, she had no idea how much bitterness also comes with it. She went onto add, “I know what’s going on. There are some people who don’t like what I am getting to do. I seem to have become the easiest target. So, all kinds of stories about me are being floated. If I go on to clarify, I fall into a trap. The idea is to make me lose focus and I must admit that it has been very demoralising. I am horrified to see how bitter and negative people here can get.”
However is seems, as the actress career successes, so does her ambition to take all that comes her way in her stride, as she went onto say, “I am not some super human being. I know that my position is being targeted. I have slogged for a decade to reach where I have and I know that if one film goes haywire, I will be attacked. But I choose to take that as a challenge. These things are only making me stronger. My sister gets worried and asks why am I taking so much stress; let people say what they want to, or do what they want to. I end up with a neck pain every night. But this stress is also helping me, because it keeps me on my toes. These people, who are waiting to pull me down, are actually pushing me to go beyond my limits. My contemporaries who want me to fail are actually helping me excel. It’s just that every morning I wake up, I think I didn’t work hard for this.”
Talking of her success, Ranaut will next be seen playing a role opposite Imran Khan in ‘Katti Batti’. Directed by Nikhil Advani, the film is set to hit the silver screens on 18th September.
