Kangna Ranaut has had quite the year. 2017 has been full of controversies that involved Bollywood A-listers like Hrithik Roshan, Karan Johar and Aditya Pancholi among others. The star opened up about the aftermath of getting into spats with the elite of the industry and admitted that her career has been affected.

In a recent interview, Ranaut said, “The offers haven’t slowed but my commercial viability has been affected. The endorsements are fewer, my earnings are down and my plan to open my own production house has had to be pushed. But I have signed three films, have a beautiful house in Manali now and an office on Pali Hill and I’m going to Harvard so don’t write me off just yet.”

Amid the controversies, Ranaut took a break from ranting about the issues and rather focused on her upcoming project ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi,’ where she is putting all her dedication and hard work reports the Indian Express. She added, “I don’t want my life to become a cautionary tale but an inspiration for young girls and for that I will survive and succeed.”

Ranaut also hit back at Mukesh Bhatt who had called women shameless and cunning, while commenting on sexual harassment. The Bhatt said, “A woman can offer herself to any and as many men as she wants but that doesn’t give anyone the right to force himself on her. Also, while a sexual offender should be shamed into not repeating the offence with others, I believe a young girl on the threshold of a bright career shouldn’t be pushed into speaking up and getting kicked out. It’s better to play safe and open up when she can make a difference like many of these actresses in Hollywood are today.”

‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ releases in April next year.
