Kangana: I am done with dating

There was buzz that director Kunal Deshmukh and Kangna Ranaut are an item. If that’s true, then Dino Morea must have rocked their love boat! The pictures of her and Dino, in what looked like a passionate kiss was harmless according to the actress. “I know Dino for a while now. We’ve met socially and even had a few laughs but to make it seem like there is something more is terrible,” says the curly-haired temptress. Ranaut also adds, “I’m done with relationships.

I have 10 movies to complete this year, and will perhaps take on another dozen next year. What I’m trying to say is that I’m completely swamped by work. I have no desire to get into another relationship. I’m done with those.”

The actress says the next time she dates a man, it will have to lead to a walk up the altar. “Marriage is what it will be,” says Ranaut, adding, “I may marry three years

down the line or perhaps even five years down the line. But I’m certainly not interested in the dating scene.”

Kangana Ranaut gets 5 crore for a film

Actress Kangana Ranaut has apparently understood her true worth and with her current fee demand for signing a film she has put herself among the top actresses of the industry, who get what they want.

‘Ask and ye shall receive’ - Kangana asked for whooping Rs 5 crore for signing a film and the producers weren’t hesitant to fulfill her demand at all. The film is a love story and stars former Union Minister Ram Vilas Paswan’s son Chirag Paswan. There are talks that the movie has scope for three actresses. Hunt is on for the other two.

As a source tells a daily, “Kangna has come a long way from the days of her debut film Gangster. Directors realize her potential and have no qualms in giving her the fee she deserves.”

The movie is produced by TV actor-turned-producer Anuj Saxena. Confirming this news, COO of his company Pooja Kashyap is quoted as saying, “Kangna is a great actress. She adds a lot of value to a film. What we have paid her is fully justified.”

The demanding Kangs!

Dino-Kangana together (RUMOUR)

Dino Morea is certainly living up to his Casanova image. At the second wedding anniversary party of Sanjay Dutt and Manyata on Friday night, Dino had eyes only for Kangna Ranaut.

And watching the PDA in action, it didn’t seem like the single again Kangna was minding the attention one bit.

While the party, held at Sanjay’s and Manyata’s residence, was off limits to the press, a source at the party reveals, “It was a well attended affair and several couples like Shilpa and Raj Kundra, Sunil and Mana Shetty, Fardeen and Natasha Khan, David Dhawan and wife Lalli, besides some others like Kirron Kher and Amar Singh were present. Dino, who made an appearance sans his steadiest girlfriend Nandita Mahatani, had lots to talk about with Kangna Ranaut. Before long, they were chatting away so intimately that it was difficult to believe that this was their first proper meeting at a private party.”

The source continues, “During the course of the evening, Kangna was seen mostly around Dino and they were overheard discussing movies, especially their common interest in Hollywood films. Dino flattered her with many compliments about her best roles. Interestingly, when they both decided to leave at the same time, they hugged each other rather warmly and the peck on the cheek was as hot as it gets. In the lobby, as they waited for their cars, a happy Dino couldn’t resist hopping on a kiddie car lying there, which made Kangna burst into delighted laughter.”

But though Dino succeeded in tickling Kangna’s funny bone, they left soon after in their respective cars. If the sparks between them on Friday night are any indication, there might be more to come.

Kangana's new home

Looks like it's the season to either book, buy or move into new residences. Evidently something is right somewhere with the finances in the film industry.

We have a story about Vidya Balan buying a four-bedroom apartment at Khar (see below) and now comes the news that Kangna Ranaut has just purchased her dream home in an under-construction building at Bandra.

The house has everything that Kangna needs. It is a triplex penthouse with a living room, guest bedroom, kitchen and terrace on the first level, three bedrooms on the second and the master bedroom, a swimming pool and gym on the third. Additionally her home will have a private lift so that her friends can party or visit without disturbing the rest of the household.

Kangna has been looking for a bigger house so that she could have her parents stay with her. They have a huge house in Manali and Kangna was keen to be able to house them in a spacious apartment in Mumbai.

She has also purchased three parking spaces to go with the apartment, and though she declines to go into details of her new home which is still in the nascent stage, she is obviously thrilled to be able to provide the best for her parents.

Kangana Ranaut won't do film with Aditya Panscholi

Actress upset about reports of her acting opposite Aditya Panscholi.

Kangna Ranaut is upset with news reports that she has signed up to play ex-lover Aditya Panscholi's girl in Dum Maro Dum. Aditya reportedly plays a gangster in the Rohan Sippy-directed film that also stars Abhishek Bachchan and Nagarjuna's nephew Rana Daggubati. The hunt had been on for a female second lead who will be paired opposite Raju and will also be the moll of Aditya's gangster. Reports had stated that Kangna had been signed up for the role. However, Kangna's spokesperson denied the reports stating clearly, "Kangna Ranaut has not signed any film with Aditya Panscholi and does not intend to do so."

Dum Maro Dum is based on the drug racket in Goa.

Kites Official Trailer

British accent for Kangna Ranaut

The game of musical chairs in Abhinay Deo’s tentatively titled film Crooked has finally ended. After Aishwarya Rai Bachchan backed out and Soniya Jehan was hurriedly brought in, Kangna Ranaut will now play the UK-based undercover cop in the film. But with just a week to go before filming starts, Kangna is left with little time to pick up a British accent and also learn swift kicks and moves, which her character - an athletic cop - is required to execute on screen.

It’s probably the biggest challenge of her career, and Kangna is getting no help at all from her director. She apparently tried to get in touch with Abhinay Deo, but since he’s shooting nights for the film, he sleeps through the day.

The actor is now at a loss to prepare for the role which has no reference point in Hindi cinema, which probably also explains why Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was doing the part before Kangna.

But Kangna insists she was the original choice. “To my surprise, Ritesh Siddhwani came back to me with the role. This time I had to accommodate it into my schedule at very short notice,” she says. “But I can’t talk about my role at all. All I can say is it is something I’ve never played before. Very intense, agile, and yes, free of glamorous trappings.”

While getting the body language would be relatively easier, acquiring the British accent needed for her part as a British-Asian character may prove tough for Kangna, who is known as much for her rustic Himachali accent as her powerhouse talent.

Kangna Ranaut's sister gets justice

The court’s verdict has resulted in a five-year sentence for the two men behind the crime. The Chief Judicial Magistrate sentenced held Avinash and his friend Prem Singh guilty of throwing acid on Rangoli, yesterday.

The case had been running for over four years now. The actress, who had been very vocal about the attack on her sister in 2006, is happy to see justice served. “While we cannot get back the years my sister lost, I am happy to see that the people behind this have been punished,” said Kangana.

In October 2006 , Rangoli’s ex-lover Avinash had asked Singh to throw acid on her for ending their relationship. It is believed that Singh entered into the Ranaut home proclaiming that he was there to deliver a courier and then threw acid on her when she arrived to the door. The damage caused was quite extensive, with serious burn injuries on Rangoli’s face and other parts of the body.

Soon after the incident, Kangana, who was then filming for Shakalaka Boom Boom, made arrangements for her sister to be flown to Mumbai and looked at by the best doctors in the field. Over the past few years, it is believed that Rangoli has undergone several cosmetic surgeries to help restore her facial structure.
