Kangana Ranaut – the feisty warrior queen you probably can’t handle

What is it about Kangana Ranaut? She is stylish and gorgeous in some pictures, mildly amused in others and in others she loos like she’s measuring up the price of your soul and chuckling at the deal she’s going to get. She’s feisty and a self-described warrior woman – although her own reputation backs that up all the way.

She looks like she’ll scold you so that you face burns like a ping-pong paddle, and we don’t rate your chances if you don’t have the exact number of sugar grains in her morning tea.

Born in Bhambla, a small town in Himachal Pradesh, Ranaut initially aspired to become a doctor at the insistence of her parents. According to Ranaut, she was “stubborn and rebellious” while growing up:

“If my father would gift my brother a plastic gun and get a doll for me, I would not accept that. I questioned the discrimination.”

“People in the industry treated me like I didn’t deserve to be spoken to and I was some unwanted object. I couldn’t speak English fluently and people made fun of me for that. So dealing with rejection became a part of life. … All that has taken a toll, I guess. I find it hard to deal with praise. Today, when people say that I have made it and made it on my own, I feel like locking up myself somewhere … It scares me.”
