Amazing to get two National Awards so early on: Kangana Ranaut

Actress Kangana Ranaut says life has not changed much after winning a National Film Award for her performance in Queen. But she admits that people are now showing faith in her and she is getting offers from big directors for more women-centric films. She finds it ‘amazing’.

“After my second National Award, it is not that something has changed in my life (literally), but yes it is a landmark in my career. People have now started believing in me,” Kangana said here Thursday at an event to meet and greet her fans of a campaign done by a popular website.

“I am getting lot of offers from big directors for female-centric films and they are the ones whom I wanted to work with always,” she added.

Kangana had earlier won a Best Supporting Actress National Film Award for Fashion. She is excited about the fact that at an early age of 28, she has two National Awards in her kitty.

“I do appreciate the fact that at the age of 28, I have won two National Awards. That means a lot to me,” Kangana said.

Meanwhile, as of now, Kangana is busy with her upcoming films, Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Katti Batti. She has also pocketed a biopic on late Indian screen icon Meena Kumari recently.

‘Empowerment is about evolving, not being a sexist’
Actress Kangana Ranaut says the video My Choice must be appreciated for the effort towards promotion of women empowerment, but she is of the view that empowerment cannot happen by becoming sexists. “Women empowerment does not mean you create complex among men. Then it will take 20 more years to empower men. It is all about evolving as a soul, as a human being. It does not mean that you become a sexist,” Kangana said here on Thursday at an event where she was asked about her views on the video.

My Choice, directed by Homi Adjania, calls for a change in the mindset of men about women and asks them to stop judging women for their choices of clothes, profession and life. The video shows actress Deepika Padukone talking about the freedom of choice that women must have regarding multiple issues, including having the choice to indulge in sex before marriage or out of marriage or not having sex at all. Kangana says she hasn’t watched the video yet. “But I am glad that people are contributing in their own way. Everyone has different expectations but it should be appreciated for the efforts they are putting in,” she added.
