With ‘Katti Batti’ up for release soon, Kangana Ranaut has been giving interviews here and there and you can always count on her one line that will make a huge statement. We don’t know whether she likes to gain attention this way or whether she wants people to respect her because she’s speaking the truth. Only Kangana knows what her real intentions are. Like in this interview of hers, she claims that she doesn’t know anything about live-in relationships but everyone knows that she was living in with Aditya Pancholi at the beginning of her career. Maybe she thought everyone has memory loss or what else, would she state something like this when everything else is in the open!
Kangana Ranaut on Katti Batti
‘Katti Batti’ is not based on live-in relationships at all. People are assuming many things about this film. Live in is one of the stages that the lead pair are going through and probably it is a part of the film for three minutes that too is through a song. So, ‘Katti Batti’ is not about live-in and I myself don’t know anything about live-in so it’s better I shouldn’t say anything on it.
Kangana Ranaut on playing the most intense character in ‘Katti Batti’
This has been the most intense character I have ever played. The promos and songs of Katti Batti’ don’t give the idea about the intensity that the film carries. I suggested to the makers if we can take out promos that can tell the kind of depth and intensity that Katti Batti’ holds, but they didn’t take any of my advice and everything looks happy go lucky. But Katti Batti’ is a very intense film. Payal, my character in the film is going to be a revelation for me. This character has changed me forever. I’ll never get to play such type of an intense character in my whole life.
Kangana Ranaut on people in the industry treating her badly at the beginning
When I was struggling people treated me so badly. What happens is a heroine is always dependent on the producer or the hero so no one thought what if someone becomes Kangana Ranaut and then she will never work with me as producer or actor. They should have some shame before they treat women badly. They assume ‘kya karegi’. She is just a girl.
Kangana Ranaut on charging this much for films
My point is, today I am charging what I am charging because I hold some significance… If two three more women like that come then they will be scared of women.
Kangana Ranaut advising Newcomers in Bollywood
If new actresses want to make it big, they have to come with some security net of a boyfriend or a father… Something. They can’t do it on their own because it is so hard to be in this world where such evil people live.
Kangana Ranaut on comparison with male actors’ salaries
‘Queen’ did make money, about Rs 100 cr, but still I wasn’t sure how much money could I ask for after that. Also, giving a 250 cr money is a different thing altogether. My getting Rs 11 cr is a small step towards that equality you are talking about, and as a woman I would also want to see…to be treated as an equal.
Kangana Ranaut on Salman Khan asking her to do Katti Batti
Salman (Khan) told me that I had to do this film (Katti Batti). He is a friend and I trust him. So, when he asked me to hear the script, I agreed. I was in New York then and after Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns I was flooded with women-centric scripts and that became my priority. So under normal circumstances I wouldn’t have given anything else much of a thought.
