  • Kangana Ranaut celebrates her 36th birthday today.
  • In her career of more than 15 years, the queen of Bollywood has dared to take a lot of risks and fought against big names.

Kangana Ranaut's name is synonymous with that of a queen who has been constantly fighting a battle for truth and justice. In Bollywood, the actress has been leading from the front when it comes to discussing nepotism-related issues in the industry, unfair comments, biased award functions, and hypocritic behaviour.

Rather, since the last few years, she has been more in news for her fights against the politicians, and Bollywood A-listed gang which she jokingly calls Bullywood, than her movies.

She is genuine and outspoken which is very rare

Her dedication to her craft is undeniably unparalleled. Be it an unconventional role in Queen or portraying the historical figure of Rani Laxmibai, Kangana made sure that she gives her 100% to her character making each of them memorable.

From gaining weight for the Jayalalitha biopic Thalaivi to taking special training for Dhaakad, Kangana dares to take all the risks to ensure that her portrayal of a certain character is justified.

Solo star power, No Khans or Khandaan

While other leading actresses of today like Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt have just one or two solo- movies to their name, Kangana has been doing it in almost all the movies. Importantly, most of her movies are not from big banners like YRF or SLB, or with big heroes like Khans or Akshay Kumar or Hrithik Roshan.

Kangana is the sole superstar in most of her movies which is why she is the real female superstar of Bollywood today.

She dared to refuse a big offer from YRF

YRF had offered her the role of female lead opposite Salman Khan which she turned down because Kangana believed that there was nothing much for her in that role which later on was done by Anushka Sharma. This irked YRF who decided never to cast Kangana Ranaut in their movies again which can be said a big loss for any budding actress. However, that has not stopped the Tanu Weds Manu actress from taking such risks again and again.

Going public about her affair with Hrithik Roshan

That was one big daring as Hrithik Roshan belongs to a big Bollywood family and a word against him was sure to be slammed by the A-listed Bollywood gang. From Javed Akhtar to Karan Johar, many big names in Bollywood grouped up against her when Kangana Ranaut said that she had an affair with the Greek God of Bollywood which Hrithik vehemently has kept on denying.

Fighting for justice for SSR

The death of Sushant Singh Rajput triggered a big debate related to nepotism on social media and it was Kangana who kept on slamming, criticizing, and accusing Bollywood for indirectly causing the sudden death of SSR. She accepted openly her drug addiction in the initial stage of her career, revealed her struggles when she was in a relationship with Aditya Pancholi, and how she fought all her shortcomings to emerge successful.

Her tryst with Sanjay Raut and demolishment of her Mumbai office

Corona pandemic was also the time when Kangana had a serious fight with Shiv Sena's topmost leader Sanjay Raut. A part of her office in Mumbai was demolished by the officials of BMC, but still Kangana continued to fight and later was offered special security by the Indian government after she started receiving threats.
