Kangana Ranaut celebrates 7 years of Queen with an untold story: Didn't have the courage to return to India.

Kangana Ranaut is celebrating an important milestone today! Her critically acclaimed film Queen clocks seven years and the actress marked the day by sharing an untold story with millions of fans and followers on Twitter. Kangana revealed that the film released at a time when she was set to bury all her acting ambitions and move to the US to pursue filmmaking. The actress also revealed that she was told that she "too good an actor" to become a leading lady in Bollywood. 

Queen, which changed Kangana's life and gave her acting career a fresh lease of life, is considered to be one of the finest performances to date. The actress wrote, "After almost a decade long struggle I was told I am too good an actor to be a Bollywood leading lady, curly hair and vulnerable voice made it worse, I signed Queen thinking this will never release, signed it for money with that money I went to film school in Newyork (cont)." 

She added, "In Newyork I studied screenwriting, directed a small film in California at the age of 24 which gave me a breakthrough in Hollywood, after seeing my work a big agency hired me as a director, I buried all my acting ambitions, did not have the courage to return to India (cont)." 

Kangana went on to reveal, "Bought a small house in the outskirts of LA in Calabasas, just when I left everything, Queen released, changed my life and Indian Cinema forever marked the Birth of a new leading lady and woman centric parallel cinema #7yearsofqueen."

"Queen is not just a film for me, it was an explosion of everything I ever deserved was kept away from me for 10 long years, everything came all at ones, it was overwhelming, I truly believe what is ours no one can take away hang in their you will get your due #7yearsofqueen," the actress tweeted. 

Queen was directed by Vikas Bahl and released in 2014. The film became a major box office hit and also starred Rajkummar Rao and Lisa Haydon in pivotal roles.

Queen was very well written though it lost its charm in the middle 40 minutes. It started with a bang and ended with a bang. Kangna dialogue delivery and mouth movements were awefull.

Well.. how she has expressed herself in these tweets is digestible.. She takes pride in her performance.. and honest about how her career was going.. I genuinely do think that she is a fantastic actor .. I hope that Kangana in the near future Kangana will hire a PR agency to take care of her personal branding while she would focus completely on acting.
