Kangana Ranaut, one of the most interesting of the current crop of Bollywood actresses, has a well-earned birthday break today. After recent stunning performances in movies such as Gangster, Who Lamhe, Life In A Metro, Fashion and Raaz — The Mystery Continues, she has reached the giddy heights of stardom at the still relatively young age of twenty-two.
She hopes, however, that she is still at the start of her career and plans to focus on it until she is at least thirty which is good news for all her fans — even though it may mean putting marriage on the back burner for the time being. “There are so many other things to do that are far more important in my life, so many places to see, dreams to fulfill,” she says, “I want to get married when I want to have babies.”
Kangana also has ambitions to develop careers in other areas. She has signed up for a fashion course in London and would also like to try her hand at directing. “I want to go to the US to study filmmaking and then direct a film. It has been my dream and now I want to fulfill it,” she explains, “After I complete my pending acting assignments I intend to go abroad.”
Kangana’s fans have much to look forward to. We’ll soon be seeing her doing the salsa in her role as Gina in the Hrithik Roshan-Barbara Mori movie Kites. She’s also been cast as Madhubala in the much-anticipated Once Upon A Time in Mumbai opposite Ajay Devgan, Emraan Hashmi and Prachi Desai. Then there’s the delayed Roshan with Bobby Deol which is now scheduled to be released in April and the rumoured Tollywood movie opposite Prabhas which could be ready by August.
