Kangana Ranaut might have established her own empire today and has carved a space in the industry. But it hasn't been a bed of roses for the actress. In fact, she has had her own share of struggle in her initial days. In several interviews, she has spoken about how she had run away from home and come to Mumbai with just Rs 1500 in her pocket. From there, today she's turned out to be the highest paid heroine in Bollywood. 

When asked about battling such terrible financial lows, Kangana reiterated, "Initially when you start, you don't get paid. You're not a starkid who are given stylists and who tell them what to style with what. I remember after Gangster, I was going for these award functions where I was getting an award. I didn't have clothes to wear. I didn't even have any money to buy those clothes. So there was this designer friend of mine Rick Roy who used to sponsor my clothes. He was struggling himself but his parents were supporting him"

She further shared how had it not been for Rick, she would have been absent from those functions completely. "He would make these gowns for me and I'd wonder where he's getting the money from. But it was wonderful that somebody came to my help. Otherwise, how would I even go to these functions? I wouldn't have made it to those award nights. I didn't have clothes. Otherwise, I used to wear a few Mango tops and for me, those were the luxury brands. That was the best I could afford at that point. I didn't have access to anything. From there, I came here so it's amazing," she shared.

Kangana survived the bashing, the slander and the criticism, she was pushed pushed and cornered... But she was STRONG MINDED.... She never gave in....Poor Sushant, he was this beautiful sensitive human being, who couldn't take it, the devil mafia knew, if he was pushed further he can be broken...and that's what happened. ONLY KANGANA DESERVES TOTAL SUCCESS IN BOLLYWOOD...

Kangana the real queen of Bollywood

Anonymous 5 months ago

Aishwarya is not a nepo product. She has no talent still she ruled Bollywood because of her star quality and beauty that even the world went gaga. Bollywood runs by box office simple. What extra does Kangana bring, neither she is that talented, nor is she that good looking. How did she land roles in the beginning?

Dude why do you go with looks? That's the only reason Hollywood gains an upper hand against Bollywood. They cast black people too. They are after talented people.

Bollywood tried kicking Aish out too but she managed to become bigger star worldwide and so they embraced her back. If it was not for Amitabh Bachchan's name and her own fame, she will be not seen anywhere too.

All the assholes bitching and complaining she sold herself and slept with married men have done nothing to achieve nothing in life, they fantasize about the life she has, she came with nothing but a dream to Bollywood and made it possible, who the fuck is anyone to judge her, if you have a dream do anything possible to achieve it don't just sit gossip and moan about others, like some of the assholes blogging here..

Rip Sushant

Anonymous 5 months ago

It's great that she persisted and made her way to the top. But sometimes I just wish she'd shut up because she and her sister sound like crows sometimes. Kaah kaah kaah. Did she make an active effort to support Sushant? Something a little more than praising him? If not, then it's annoying that she's now drawing attention to herself with her own kaah kaah kaah about how she struggled. Girl does kaah kaah kaah during good times and bad times.

Then how come she sang a different song when Jiya Khan committed suicide? And the accused was the son of her then boyfriend. Similar cases. Same person commenting. Different opinions. Strange. Wake up people. This lady is playing you well.
