Lot of actors are jealous of me says Kangana
National Award-winning actor Kangana <g data-gr-id="50">Ranuat</g> says a lot of female actors in Bollywood are jealous of her. Kangana, 28, made her mark with her performance in films like Gangster, Metro, Fashion and Once Upon A Time In Mumbai. But her recent releases Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns have highlighted her acting prowess.
When asked if any female actor is jealous of her, she said, “There are lots of them who are jealous of me. I can't name anyone. I will talk about them later.” She also said she was happy with the response her last released film Tanu Weds Manu sequel received.
Asked if the money matters to her, she said, “I think money can definitely help in some or the other way. I am an independent, working girl, (with money) I can lead a good comfortable life, support my family and do things that make me happy.”
Asked if the celebrities who endorse products should be held liable if the product is found to have flaws, she answered in the negative. “No, I don't think those who endorse should be held liable,” she said, adding that she herself does not endorse too many products.
Kangana Ranaut has also dismissed reports that she will star in Reema Kagti's Mr Chalu, saying she has not been approached for the film. There were reports earlier that the Queen star had quit the project due to casting delays. “They have not approached me,” the 28-year-old actor said.
Kagti has now reportedly approached Priyanka Chopra to play the lead and has also cast Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan as the film's leading man. Mr Chaalu is a story about a casanova who doesn't believe in marriage. Kangana Ranaut, whose much-delayed film I Love NY will finally hit screens this month, says she has not been asked to promote it.
Directed by Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru, I Love NY” is a <g data-gr-id="49">romantic-comedy</g> with an unusual pair of actor Sunny Deol and Kangana.
Both the lead actors are not seeing promoting the film. Kangana, earlier, issued a legal notice to the producer of the film—T-Series, to block its release.
Reacting to the notice, Bhushan Kumar (of T-Series) had called it ‘baseless’, saying he had sold the rights to someone else.
“I have not been asked to promote the film,” Kangana said at an event here. Reportedly, the film was shelved due to poor response to its trailer and box office failure of Deol's last few films. But the exact reason for the delay was not known.
The film was initially slated for release in <g data-gr-id="70">February,</g> 2013 but got pushed to April, then to September and stretched to December the same year, but did not hit screens. Makers, now, apparently want to cash in on the success of the lead actress's latest release Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Kangana, reportedly, is not happy with the decision as she thinks the film is being released without
