Looking super-sultry in a short satin skirt, Kangana Ranaut pouts on the front cover of Femina’s annual Love & Sex edition. The actress is refusing to comment on whether she has had lip surgery and of course there’s no reason why she should. Whether she has or not, it’s clear that she still exudes an aura of intelligent sophisticated femininity in the new September edition.
Kangana’s a busy girl at the moment with up to a dozen projects on the boil including the long-awaited Kites with Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori; the much-anticipated Once Upon a Time in Mumbai with Ajay Devgan and Emraan Hashmi; and R. Madhavan project entitled Tanu Weds Manu; the multi-starrer masala movie No Problem and an Amitabh movie called Actor. There’s an as-yet untitled Sanjay Dutt movie in which she plays a journalist based on the life of Barkha Dutt; and she pops up in the new Prabhas movie Ek Niranjan. “Each of these is a different genre from anything I have done before,” she explains, “So, it does feel like a time of many firsts…my first comedy, my first romantic comedy, my first thriller and so on! Exciting!”
And then there’s Vaada Raha… I Promise with Bobby Deol. “I play the love-interest of Bobby Deol,” she says, “He plays a doctor who is researching cancer. He is very positive and fun-loving person. But, an incident occurs in his life which changes the flow. It is a very emotional film and I am sure the audience will love it.”
