Kangana Ranaut started off with a meagre Rs 1500 when she started her journey in Bollywood. Today, she has managed to build an empire of her own. Adding to that is her latest possession - a beautiful office space situated in Pali Hill, Bandra, Mumbai. The three storeyed bungalow has been bought and renovated by the Queen actress, according to her own taste and creative genius. The plush bungalow will also be the office space for her newly launched production house and studio Manikarnika Films. She did a photoshoot at the same space for a leading lifestyle and decor magazine, before the lockdown had happened. 

While the industry is in a state of lockdown, Kangana who's currently in her Manali house (which is equally beautiful and magestic), takes us on a virtual tour of the office space and reveals what it took for her to get this properly in place. When you ask her about where it stemmed from, she immediately answers, "The idea was to build my own studio. But in between, some of my films hadn't work, like Rangoon and Simran. It's actually a very expensive property in the heart of Mumbai. It's a bungalow, not a flat. So it took a setback, but then after Manikarnika, things changed again and I could rebuild it the way I wanted to. I could have done the basic thing and moved in."

But having such a huge property was a risk of its own. Kangana said she was reminded of the same by her family members and close associates. "Everyone told me you could have worked anywhere else. Why don't you just rent an apartment instead? I told them I can't go to those glass chambers where there's no life. I need organic fabric, plants around me. My family was like: yeh itni sari demands leke direction mein struggle karne ja rahi hai. My sister is like, she's a diva, tum struggling director ho?" she laughs out loud. 

Nevertheless, she does agree that everyone around her had their own reservations but eventually, she went ahead and had done up the place the way she wanted it to be. "My CA told me why are you putting the money in this property? Usually, the studio that is backing the project they give you a place to work and the rent for it. He's asked me to put my money in bonds, or in a restaurant where there would be 40-50 lakhs rent eventually. So there was a group of people from my parents to my CA and my sister who were after my life. So going against the family never really stops. And I was like, 'Can I just do what I want to do?' They felt I'm wasting my money. It was a challenge and I still feel that going forward, I will figure it if it was a good investment or not."

What are you going about serious issues? She has done her bit. Her house was ready in January and she must have planned for it long back. This everyone turn vidhwa because we are reeling under an epidemic narrative is spun out of jealousy and complex. In any country, people are going about their normal lives to the extent possible. Companies are working and making profits to the extent possible. Media, e-commerce and television are going about making money. We don’t need to turn socialist in the light of an epidemic. It’s a warped piece of thinking. She is not throwing a lavish party to celebrate in this studio but show casing responsibly on digital.

Kangana life is her own. She is open minded, self reliant and no pseudo image. She is good at heart and what she does with her hard earning is her own. No one has a role in that. I was thinking if she could have decorated with many artistic painting of our unsung artisans present in our country. It would have given more impact on our Indian aft

Kangana said I don’t suck up to directors it shows you are not sure if your talent. She also said as a self made girl she does all movies for money. When you are a true boss girl who slays, who chooses subjects and delivers and your track record as an artist is always soaring regardless of the PR campaign which s organized, you earn your success. Burning of hate for Kangana will not solve the misery in your life. Stop sucking up to men for work, using media camps to build your brand, stop living off PR, stop sucking up to make actors for two minute roles, stop getting convinced by failed men that only they can make you rise, work on yourself - it could happen to you.

Kangana never shied away in saying that she does every film for money. Because she never piggybacked in any male star nor suck up to a director to make her a PR star, she always focused on building herself up artistically & financially. This is a result of that hard work and determination.

Anonymous 1 month ago

The way she talks, behave, confronts and now makes professional choices has changed ever since her open support for Modi. I won't be surprised if she has BJP money supporting her. Her first film will be on Ayodhya. It is hard to deny affiliation. She is most likely not better off than Anushka and look at her how she has managed her independent production house on a budget with a small office in Lokhandwala for 5 years. Kangana's main source of income is from films and private investments. She has no brand affiliations and neither other gigs like A-list actresses. So how she managed to buy a 48C bungalow, renovate and start a studio and green-light multiple projects is not just cause of 1 hit film.

Anonymous 1 month ago

You are not critical thinking but burning with jealousy. Kangana has done more than 36 movies and we know how much she earns per movie. She has done about 15 brands after TWMR and still does some brands. Since she is not a PR pinup, her brand fee is high and she does not have to give cuts to middle men & PR armies.

Anonymous 1 month ago

She is one of the highest paid actress of bollywood.

Anonymous 1 month ago

For you to deny critical thinking is the reason media can feed people anything. A person whose income and assets are nowhere near 48Cr + her unknown budget for multiple films, establishes a studio in the heart of mumbai does not make you question integrity of business and ethics of her finances? She has alienated her entire industry peers, nobody wants to be associated with her. Just because Bollywood has laundered money for corrupt investors, does not justify BJP sponsoring propaganda thru her. What do you think BJP is all of sudden interested in promoting historical correct narratives and promote peace and harmony and art freedom? Vandalism of their goons during film releases is well documented.
