Speaking with Hindustan Times, the Tanu Weds Manu actress revealed she left her home in Himachal Pradesh when she was just 12-13 years old. Later she moved to Mumbai for a catalogue shoot of saree that help her with expenses at that time. Kangana shared, “When I left home in Himachal I was 12-13 years old. I was studying in a hostel in Chandigarh. Later I came to Delhi and stayed for one to two years. In 2004, I came to Mumbai for a modelling assignment and then I threw away the phone my agency gave me. When they called me back (to Delhi) I even tore my ticket. I told them that I don’t want to go back. Mujhe woh kaam karna hi nahi hai kyunki mujhe woh humesha modelling me nicha dikhate rehte the.” ALSO READ: Karan Johar Lashes Out At Kangana Ranaut For Calling Him ‘Movie Mafia’; Says, ‘Don’t Think She Understood The Meaning Behind Her Statement’
She further added “Kyuki unko lagta tha ki Delhi me ramp model zyada hote hai. Uske liye 5’11 to 6 ft ki height chhaiye hoti hai ladkiyo ko. Aur meri 5’7 ki height hai. Mai sara din baithi rehti thi. Mujhe kehte they aaj bhi kaam nhi mila tumhe, tumhara kuch nahi hone wala modelling me. Then, I started getting catalogue (shoots) and ads where I had to stand behind others. I came to Mumbai for a catalogue shoot of saree. But, it’s okay, it used to help me with my expenses at that time.”
