Kangana Ranaut is in the lead role in the “Knock Out Movie” opposite Sanjay Dutt. With this fast paced thriller the pair directed by Mani Shankar plans to create an euphoria like Sunny Deol films.
In a very small career on silver screen Kangana has won prestigious Filmfare and National Film Award. She made her Bollywood debut in 2006 with Mahesh Bhatt film Gangster. The film was a commercially successful and her performance was also applauded. For this film she got two Filmfare awards for Best Female Debut and Fairever Fresh Face. She was adjudged best debut actress by Zee Cine Award, Stardust and IIFA.
Hence, her career started to roll further. Two years later in 2008 she won National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as a troubled model in Fashion. The film theme was around the dark side of the fashion world. Ranaut's portrayal of a supermodel who loses everything on drug abuse gained her widespread praise.
"It's been quite a journey...I came to the industry when I was just 17 with no real idea of what to expect. I was fortunate that 'Gangster' was a huge hit at the box office. I won a lot of awards and the industry gave me another chance. Otherwise, Bollywood is an industry that's very unforgiving towards outsiders," said Kangana to a magazine.
The path ahead for her is promising but not easy. The media reports rumour about her troubled relations with Salman and Aditya Pancholi in past. But she is entrepreneur by nature and harbours a dream of directing a film for which she already has a script in mind. She has designed the clothes for her upcoming movies 'Rascals' and 'Tezz'. Other upcoming films of her are : 'Dum Maaro Dum', 'Game', and 'No Problem'
So far, Kangna has got applauds from critics for the performance in 'Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai', 'Fashion', 'Life In A... Metro' and 'Gangster'. Some of the critics find the glimpses of legendary actress Meenakumari in her. Kangana considers Madhubala, Angelina Jolie and Parveen Babi as her role models.
