Kangana Ranaut who ventured into Bollywood with Anurag Basu’s directorial ‘Gangster’, has been in the news, lately, for all the wrong reasons. Be it attacking the Bollywood biggies or the raging Twitter battle with Punjabi singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh over the new farm bill in India, the ‘Queen’ of Bollywood has spared no one.
Now, Kangana’s debut director Anurag Basu has made an intriguing remark on her ‘Gangster’ heroine, asserting that he’s somewhat befuddled about the ‘public persona’ of the actress. Remembering the time he initially met the fiery actress, Anurag has said that among the 20-25 young ladies they tried out for the part in ‘Gangster, Kangana’s face just latched onto his subconscious mind and he felt there was something exceptional about her.
Nonetheless, while sharing his musings on her ‘public persona’, the renowned director said he didn’t see this side of Kangana. He further adds that they don’t meet a lot of these days but says that he can no more relate with Kangana’s current public persona. According to Anurag, there are two Kanganas and he doesn’t understand the other one.
Anurag Basu has worked with Kangana Ranaut in three movies to be specific ‘Gangster’, ‘Life In A Metro’ and ‘Kites’. Kangana’s upcoming film is the biopic ‘Thalaivi’ in which she will be playing the role of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa. Kangana’s other upcoming movies are ‘Dhaakad’ and ‘Tejas’.
