Since Kangna Ranaut went on the promotional path for her latest release ‘Simran’, a lot have said that she’s spoken less about the film and more about her personal agenda – her past relationships and industry lowlights.
Responding to this, Ranaut said in an interview with Times Of India, “Most people expect me to be like, now that you’re promoting, just stick to your business. But the point is, who are you tell me what my business is? If I am entirely here only for movies then why did I reject Khan films? Why don’t I care to work with Karan Johar? Why don’t I go get awards, if just that’s my business? But I don’t care about my business, can’t you tell? So who are you to tell me what my business should be? I am here in the capacity of a woman, and my personality as a woman is a lot more valuable to me than my business of my films. Like I’ve said no to 300-crore films. It’s not like they became 300-crore films and I regret it, they were always 300 crore on paper also. I mean, can’t you tell that I really don’t care about the business of my films? Especially, like I said after I hit rock bottom and realised that actually, it really doesn’t matter, because people have loved me as an individual. So I have to make sure that when somebody points a finger at your character as a woman, you’ve got to respond to that.”
She was also asked about what people might think about her ideology that will be working with her, she said, “No, but like I said, I already have four offers. It’s not even relevant to them either. I am an actor, I’ll get a job regardless. So anyone who thinks that a profession is of one’s character and dignity is just an idiot who doesn’t know how to live life. Life is not about tricks and techniques. Life is about finding yourself, and finding peace with that.”
‘Simran’ is out at cinemas now.
