Kangana wants 'Rajjo' to be game changer for her
Kolkata: Having proved her mettle in a comic role in the 2011 romantic-comedy 'Tanu Weds Manu', Kangana Ranaut said that she hopes her forthcoming film 'Rajjo', in which she plays a nautch (dance) girl, turns out to be a game changer.
The actress broke free of her troubled girl image that she had in films like 'Gangster', 'Woh Lamhe' and 'Fashion', through her impressive comic timing in director Anand L. Rai's 'Tanu Weds Manu', which also gave her a chance to dance.
She fervently wishes 'Rajjo' to be another turning point in her career.
"I always wanted to dance. After 'Fashion', people did not give me comedy roles and 'Tanu Weds Manu' was a game changer for me...and now 'Rajjo' has given me another chance to dance and I hope it too becomes a game changer," she said.
Busy promoting her next release, 'Krrish 3', the actress said researching for her role as a nautch girl was a revelation. She was shocked to find that most of the women in the flesh business "really love doing what they do".
"Most don't even mind being in flesh business. They really love doing what they do....it's not that they want to escape or have a different life.. it was a shocking thing for me.
"The ones who are really popular mujra girls ..it's unlike how they are portrayed in Hindi films...they are trained and they are groomed in the art and craft of wooing men ...so well spoken and well mannered and these are the few things that I realised while doing the research."
