'Talent is irrelevant in Bollywood'

Kangana, who has had her share of struggle in the initial years, is counted among top actors now

New Delhi: Three-time National Award-winning star Kangana Ranaut, who has had her share of struggle in the initial years, says she now finds that talent is irrelevant in Bollywood.

"I have become tough. Initially, when I came in, I'd think that talent was everything and you got to prove yourself. I did many things (and) I struggled on my way up. I learnt filmmaking and script writing. I did everything, thinking talent is everything. Then, when I made it big, I realised talent is not relevant in this industry."

"People who play power politics and games have woven their little web of contacts and a small mafia. They work in sync with each other," she added.

Kangana stepped into the world of acting with the thriller Gangster.

Over a decade later, she is tagged as one of the top actors in the Hindi film industry, after working in blockbusters like Queen, Tanu Weds Manu franchise and Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. The actor, who is often surrounded by controversies, hit the headlines in 2017 when she called filmmaker Karan Johar "intolerant" towards outsiders and a "flagbearer of nepotism".
