Though Kangana Ranaut is an open book there are many things her fans still don't know about her. As the actress celebrates her 34th birthday today and is also being lauded for her power-packed portrayal of the late Jayalalitha in the recently released trailer Thalaivi, we bring to you 10 things that you didn't know about Ranaut.
Kangna has played the maximum biographical characters: Monika Bedi in her debut film Gangster, ParveenBabi in WohLamhe, Madhubala in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, Geetanjali Nagpal in Fashion, Jhansi Ki Rani in Manikarnika, Jayalalitha in Thailavi
Hosted by the Pancholis: After her arrival from Himachal Pradesh, Kangna was hosted in Mumbai by Aditya Pancholi. She even stayed in a flat owned by the Pancholis.
Anurag Basu spotted Kangana at a coffee shop: Was spotted by Anurag Basu at a coffee shop to be signed for Gangster, though this version of her beginning in Bollywood has been challenged by many.
Kangana and her love life: After Aditya Pancholi, it was Shekhar Suman’s son that Kangana was closely associated with. There was also a mysterious British boyfriend whom no one had seen. Currently embroiled in a legal brawl with a superstar.
Kangana almost had a different debut: Kangna was to make her debut in a film entitled I Love You Boss, produced by Pahlaj Nihalani and directed by Deepak Shivdasani. The film never got made.
Kangana was mentored by Anurag Basu: Was mentored by Anurag Basu initially. She was so close to his family that she would spend hours in Basu’s house during her days of struggle. Ranaut had a fall-out with Basu over the length of her role in his Kites. They are no longer on talking terms.
Queen the game changer! Before Queen, undoubtedly the piece de resistance of her career, Kangna’s career hit rock-bottom with duds like Tezz, Rascals and Rajjo.
Kangana refused to promote Rascals: Wore a bikini for the first time in Rascals. Refused to publicize the film. Bikini body was fine. But she didn’t like the way her role had shaped up.
Kangana and letter R don't stick together: ‘R’ is clearly not a lucky letter for Kangna. Rascals, Rajjo, Revolver Rani are some of her biggest fiascos.
Kangana boycotted popular awards: Queen re-wrote the course of Kangna’s career. She won all the major popular awards for her performance. But refused to collect the awards as she does not respect the popular awards.
