On this day – Kangana Ranaut birthday: 5 films that prove that she’s a versatile actress
On her birthday, here’s a list of 5 best films of Kangana Ranaut where she impressed the audience with her acting.
It would not be wrong to say that Kangana Ranaut is one actress who has gone from strength to strength since her debut film ‘Gangster’ (2006). From being able to show both strength and vulnerability of her characters, she has excelled at each role she’s taken. Lately, the stunning actress has even tried her hand at writing and direction as well.
On her 36th birthday, here’s a list of her 5 best films of Kangana Ranaut where she has impressed the audience with her acting:
In the film, the actress was seen as Simran (Kangana), the girlfriend of an Indian gangster Daya (Shiney Ahuja). During a run away, she meets an Indian singer called Akash (Emraan Hashmi) and falls in love with him, but eventually gets betrayed as he is an Indian cop in disguise. After fatally wounding him one night, Simran commits suicide while Daya is captured by the police. Kangana’s performance in the film was praised by critics and the masses alike.
The film was Madhur Bhandarkar’s take on the dirtier side of the fashion industry. Kangana played a supermodel named Shonali Gujral, who does not handle fame and success in the best way possible amid the pressure of being at the top. She gets lured into drugs and alcohol, and makes a slow descent towards hell. The film is remembered as one of her best acts.
‘Tanu Weds Manu’ (2011)
In the film, Kangana played Tanu, who at first rejects arranged marriage with Manu (Madhavan), but eventually gets attracted to him. Her flawed but real acting in the film endeared herself to the audiences.
The film revolved around a woman taking a solo voyage towards self-discovery. Kangana played Rani Mehra, who is left alone by her fiance Vijay (Rajkummar Rao), one day prior to her wedding. She then vows to go solo to her honeymoon, to Paris and Amsterdam, and she soon realises she doesn’t need a man to find happiness. The film and Kangana, both, were a delight to watch.
‘Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi’ (2019)
In the film, the actress played Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi, one of our foremost freedom fighters, and Kangana certainly channelled the spirit of the warrior queen with immense resolve and valour.
