Kangana Ranaut, who is known for her bold statements, has once again sparked discussions around her statements on filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. She has heaped praises on the 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' filmmaker and called him a 'living legend'. The Queen fame took to her official Instagram stories, and penned a long note sharing her views on the veteran filmmaker.
The 36-year-old actress has revealed that she had previously received roles from Sanjay's production house but for some reason, things couldn't work out.
Taking to her Instagram story, Kangana wrote, "I deeply admire Shri Sanjay Leela Bhansali as an artist, he never fakes success or glory... He is the most genuine and indulgent artist living in the film industry right now... Nobody that I know who is so helplessly in love with the magic of cinema and so driven by his passion... Above all he minds his business, intense creativity and rare integrity... He is a living legend ... I just love Sanjay sir... love (red heart emoji)."
"Over the years there were song/ roles that were offered to me by SLB production, for some or the other reason I couldn't do them, still today if I want to see him or go to his house just to chat with him, he sits before me like a living God smiling gently, showering kindness and admiration through his eyes, man of few words SLB ji is simply wonderful (red heart emojis)." She wrote.
In 2020, Kangana told Pinkvilla that declining to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one of her biggest regrets.
"He wanted to get a sense of me as an artist but we didn’t get an opportunity and it didn’t work out. It will be one of my biggest regrets,” she told Pinkvilla.
On the professional front, on the work front, Kangana Ranaut will be seen in her own directed production ‘Emergency’ and she will be playing the role of former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
