Kangana Ranaut has been in news for all the critical acclaim for her roles (particularly her last two). For a change they are built around her rather than a male lead, and now she is said to be the highest paid actress in the industry.
She's been breaking glass ceilings and has done it doing what she loves. But in the forthcoming ‘Katti Batti’, a few things are a little different. She admits that this is a different film, unlike all the other films she has done. "In the film he's clearly the protagonist and I'm clearly the antagonist. He drives the plot," Kangana says about co-star Imran Khan.
She discloses that this is new for her since Imran was cast first. "When Nikhil (Advani, the film's director) called me, he said he has got Imran on board. You know usually, and this is a very superficial way of looking at projects, but usually, when my films are cast usually I'm the first one that gets cast. And I think this is how it works, that the person, who drives the plot, is the person is cast first but I don’t see many films that I am approached for where I get to hear "ok this person is on board and now we want you." Usually I avoid such projects, because I always have a line-up of 5-6 directors just waiting to direct me and then they will plan on everything else. So naturally that becomes your priority because you as an actor are getting meatier roles."
Clearly there was meat to this; it is an interesting bit of casting! We wonder if Kangana is pissed at the director or just trying to grab some limelight!
