Kangana Ranaut says she is happy to have carved an unconventional career path in Bollywood as she completes 10 years in the industry today.
Kangana’s debut film “Gangster” released in 2006, where she played a troubled woman in love with a gangster.
The 29-year-old National Award-winning actress says she enjoys being an “underdog” in the film industry.
“I am extremely proud of my rags to riches story, it’s fun to be a misfit or an underdog if you acknowledge your gifts and befriend your obstacles,” Kangana told PTI.
The actress’ early filmography had films like “Woh Lamhe”, “Life in a… Metro” and “Fashion”, which also earned the actress her first National Award.
In between, she appeared in a string of flops such as “Shakalaka Boom Boom”, “Raaz: The Mystery Continues”, “Vaada Raha”, which almost pushed her into oblivion.
Her career got a new lease of life with the 2011 hit romantic-comedy “Tanu Weds Manu”
and though she did some forgettable roles in movies likes “Game”, “Rascals” and “Tezz”, her performance as rebellious Tanu in Aanand L Rai’s film stayed with the audience.
