Kangana Ranaut has hogged considerable limelight after the passing away of Sushant Singh Rajput as she has captivated the entire industry with her powerful videos and appeals.
She has shown enough grit to confront the moguls of the industry whom she holds culpable for this hapless unfolding and has been exceptionally brazen in exposing nepotism in the industry.
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, she claimed that one of her exes called her a gold-digger and her wishes of proving everyone wrong intensified. Her exact words were, “I didn’t know how to prove that it wasn’t it. In a relationship, how does one who doesn’t have such possessions, comes from a small town with a humble background, have no chance of love, dignity! That person suddenly doesn’t have a say in this world of nepotistic materialistic people. Then, I thought I’m going to have the best house anyone will have, best office and by the age of 50, I also will be one of the richest people in India. That’s what I’ve just decided.”
Kangana shared that how she wasn’t lucky always and her initial days of struggles were extremely difficult. In fact, she has reiterated the point that she left her home and came to Mumbai with a paltry 1500 in her pocket. Exemplifying a perfect rags to riches story, she drew contrasts of her meteoric rise from the dust in the industry despite limited resources.
When she was asked about her struggles, she said, “Initially when you start, you don’t get paid. You’re not a star kid who is given a stylist. I remember after Gangster, I was going for these award functions where I was getting an award. I didn’t have clothes to wear. I didn’t even have any money to buy those clothes. So there was this designer friend of mine Rick Roy who used to sponsor my clothes. He was struggling himself but his parents were supporting him.”
She acknowledged the fact that it was because of Rick that she was able to attend the Award shows. She further added, “He would make these gowns for me and I’d wonder where he’s getting the money from. But it was wonderful that somebody came to my help. Otherwise, how would I even go to these functions? I wouldn’t have made it to those award nights. I didn’t have clothes. Otherwise, I used to wear a few Mango tops and for me, those were the luxury brands. That was the best I could afford at that point. I didn’t have access to anything. From there, I came here so it’s amazing.”
With the passing away of Sushant Singh Rajput, she has made several allegations against the bigshots of the industry, claiming that it is them who is responsible for the untimely demise of the talented actor.
