Acting Is Not MMBS

Kangna Ranaut believes single women shouldn’t be allowed to marry, unless they earn enough to sustain a family. “Such is the norm,” she reasons, “only for the men, which is why they are independent, and the bulk of women are not.” That’s not all, she also stresses that “Women — teens, single, married, mothers — should fight ill-treatment by the opposite sex then and there, to avoid a similar experience again.” Serious talk from someone who insists she’s too young.

Kangna joined Bollywood when she was quite young... “Well, I’m still too young, you see,” she insists. “I’ve never said I didn’t want to be an actor. I wanted to, but knew it’s not a cakewalk. So whenever people used to ask me if I’d step into B’wood, I’d simply reply, ‘Dude, get me there if you can,’ for I knew it’s not easy. Acting is not MBBS — there are no textbooks, no written tests that you can sit for, excel in and get a degree. In the film industry, there’s no rulebook. In fact, before an exam, one knows what one has missed reading, and should have known, to get the right marks. Here, you don’t even know if you’re going wrong!”

When she became a known face, there were discussions on how ‘small town girls’ have made it big in B-town, probing her background, her home town in Himachal... “Let people say whatever they wish to. It’s a beautiful place,” she explains.

She does a touch up of gloss on her lips while talking, and one can’t help but ask about her rumoured ‘lip surgery.’ “Yeah, you will hear that I’ve got my lips, my b**bs, my a**, all plumped up. But all those people who say that, don’t realise what it is to get such a drastic thing done, especially when you are that young, and don’t even have the time for it.” And after a
pause, she adds, “Though, right now, I don’t know how many tucks and surgeries I will need when I’m old.”

And will she marry a man if he doesn’t earn as much money as she does? “I would not demand such a thing from my partner. All I would want is, that I can be myself with him,” she signs off.
