Kangana Ranaut completes 15 years in the Hindi film industry today (April 28). The actress had made her Bollywood debut in 2006 when she starred opposite Shiney Ahuja and Emraan Hashmi in Anurag Basu’s directorial Gangster. And to mark the day, the National Award winner tweeted about her journey and drew comparisons with Shah Rukh Khan’s success story!
In the first part of her tweets, Kangana wrote: “15 years ago Gangster released today, Shahrukh Khan ji and mine are the biggest success stories ever but SRK was from Delhi, convent educated and his parents were involved in films, I did not know a single word of English, no education, came from a remote village of HP.”
The tweet continued, “Every step was a battle starting with my own father and grandfather, who made my life miserable, and yet 15 years later after so much success still every day is a fight for survival but totally worth it, thank you everyone…”
In her 15 year old journey, the four time National Award winning actress has come to be known as a power-packed performer with films like Manikarnika, Queen, Fashion, Tanu Weds Manu, Panga, etc to her credit. Kangana is currently looking forward to her Pan-India release Thalaivi wherein she plays the late Chief Minister J Jayalalitha. She also has Tejas in her kitty.
