Kangna Ranaut seems to have lived up to the title of Queen of Hearts in its true sense. She is a terrific actor and an inspiration to many women out there. She speaks her mind and life on her own term.
At a time when a number of Bollywood stars like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone and Sonam Kapoor have packed their bags and headed to Hollywood for film projects, one can only wonder if Kangana Ranaut also has similar plans in mind.
In a recent interview, the actress shared her views about Hollywood, calling it “stupid” to head to the West at a time when their theatre business is crashing.
It would be stupid for anyone to make the move to the West now. Their theatre business is crashing because of the influx of digital media. Asia, on the other hand, is where Hollywood was 15 years ago. It is a lucrative time for entertainment here. These are baits that I won’t fall prey to.
She also spoke about how she won’t contribute to the economy of another country.
If an American film (The Jungle Book, 2016) is doing Rs. 100 crore business, and not all our films are able to, we may not find adequate screens for home-bred films 10 years down the line. I’m all for world cinema, but it needs to be a film that brings employment and money into our country. I don’t wish to offer myself on a platter to another industry.
