But yes, sometimes I feel that I didn’t see the potential in that film.”
The actor added that no matter she is at the moment, is due to the unconventional selections she made over time. “I was not given anything on the platter. A dialogue in my upcoming film goes, ‘If life gave me an ounce, I gave it back a pound’ and similarly, I made so much from my off-beat films! I became a mainstream star from parallel or off-beat films only,” she mentioned.
“I have completely made the most of my opportunities, multiplied the outcome of my opportunities into another proportion altogether. I have never done one of those conventional films of Rajkumar Hirani or Sanjay Leela Bhansali or even Dharma Productions, YRF or any of the Khans’ films. I have done none of that but still, I’m the top leading actress who has made a name for herself. It is a case study on its own. Though I failed to see the opportunity in The Dirty Picture, I don’t regret it,” Kangana concluded.
Kangana Ranaut made her debut with Anurag Basu’s Gangster. Since then, she has been a part of many pathbreaking movies together with Queen, Manikarnika and others.
