During her modeling days, Kangana Ranaut recalls encountering REJECTION and humiliation

by Ratan Srivastava

In a recent interview, Kangana Ranaut discusses being made fun of for her height while she was modeling.

Kangana Ranaut, a Bollywood actress, has never been afraid to voice her opinions in public. In fact, she has been fairly outspoken about the difficulties she faced before breaking through in the profession. The Queen actress discussed how she experienced rejection because of her height when she was a model in a recent interview. Kangana spoke extensively on the humiliation she endured in the early stages of her battle.

The Tanu Weds Manu actress disclosed to Hindustan Times that she left her home in Himachal Pradesh when she was barely 12 or 13 years old. Later, she relocated to Mumbai for a saree catalog photo shoot that helped her with financial obligations at the moment. Kangana disclosed. “When I left home in Himachal I was 12-13 years old. I was studying in a hostel in Chandigarh. Later I came to Delhi and stayed for one to two years. In 2004, I came to Mumbai for a modeling assignment and then I threw away the phone my agency gave me. When they called me back (to Delhi) I even tore my ticket. I told them that I don’t want to go back. Mujhe woh kaam karna hi nahi hai kyunki mujhe woh humesha modelling me nicha dikhate rehte the.” 

She further added “Kyuki unko lagta tha ki Delhi me ramp model zyada hote hai. Uske liye 5’11 to 6 ft ki height chhaiye hoti hai ladkiyo ko. Aur meri 5’7 ki height hai. Mai sara din baithi rehti thi. Mujhe kehte they aaj bhi kaam nhi mila tumhe, tumhara kuch nahi hone wala modelling me. Then, I started getting catalogue (shoots) and ads where I had to stand behind others. I came to Mumbai for a catalogue shoot of saree. But, it’s okay, it used to help me with my expenses at that time.”

On the acting front, Kangana’s next project is the forthcoming film “Emergency,” in which she will portray the late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. Anupam Kher, Shreyas Talpade, Mahima Chaudhary, Milind Soman, Vishak Nair, and the late Satish Kaushik also appear in the biography. In addition to this, the actress has upcoming roles in Tejas, Chandramukhi 2 by P Vasu, Manikarnika Returns: The Legend of Didda, and The Incarnation: Sita.
