It's September 4, 2017, and the clock is ticking at 2:00 am. Just a few hours back, I learned the hardest lessons of my life without even walking the path which teaches them. No, this time these lessons didn't come from my mother and father, but this time it has come from someone with whom most of would relate.
These valuable learnings for life (mentioned below) have come from Kangana Ranaut, a woman who teaches us how exactly the Indian women should be.
Firstly, this is not a fan letter, nor I have watched most of her films, but a few hours back as I was watching YouTube, I came across Kangana Ranaut's recent television interview on the show 'Aap Ki Adalat' where the actress confidently answered all the questions and expressed herself in all the ways possible, without thinking for a second that she's a celebrity and what people may think about her.
This is a positive letter, so mostly I'll only talk about the things which all of us, the swaggy people of the Y-generation needs to learn quick and hard.
Have a look!
From leaving the education behind to following the career in modelling, delivering a speech at national awards event or sharing her opinion about things, Kangana has always boldly shared what's on her mind.
We can't imagine what she has gone through before becoming what she is, and even today she is facing all kinds of slander, and name-abuse; but the Queen refuses to get offended. She once said, "If your agenda is to shame me, that's never going to happen, Darling."
She would not keep silent at the same time she'd not say something which will offend you. That's her style as the leading lady kills it with sarcasm and smile.
Abused and ridiculed a lot of times for her poor English accent, the actress has always taken feedbacks active and in constructive ways rather than showing she's hurt and insecure.
Be it her family, father, friends or filmmakers, the three-time national award winning actress has found her way to fight back on the mental and physical attack.
What she is now was never the dream of her family. The way she's now was never the idea of her friends and close ones. The Revolver Rani denies living upto someone else's expectations.
There's more to films than starring opposite any famous and so called ruling King of Bollywood. Stop treating this as the barometer of success; actresses can survive on their own.
Whether it is bringing to public's notice about all the shame game which her 'silly ex' Hrithik Roshan played with her and then hid behind Daddy Rakesh, or saying on Shahid's face that he needs to learn acting, or calling the King maker Karan Johar a nepotic person. Kangana never minces her words.
The unorthodox career with those curly hair and shrill voice, everything about Kangana screams that she lives life on her terms.
Whether the actress is walking on the red carpet, giving an interview or promoting her films, you'll never see her without one thing, and that's attitude. She has a huge confidence on herself, and it only comes when a person knows who they really are. Without getting scared if people would put a label on them, as some people call her crazy and mentally ill.
Everyone will agree to this, only a few will learn these. Decide on who you are.
Thank you, Kangana, for all of these.
That's all, folks!
