Art doesn’t see any famous surname. It doesn’t follow any favouritism. Above all, it is pure, and this is amazingly proved by a true artist and girl of substance, Kangana Ranaut. Everyone knows her exceptional story of rags to riches, her failures, and her success.
Unaware of the darkness of Bollywood, she debuted in 2006 with the movie Gangster. An unconventional romantic thriller brought her every possible award of that year and established her as an actress who knows how to act.
Today she is a star. She is the heartbeat of a thousand people and has a unique place in the Hindi film industry. She is one of the highest-paid actresses and the co-director of a high budget film. Some say she is very competitive. If one works in any firm or any industry, competition is natural, and it is necessary.
There are many actresses in industries, and there are several categories too. A-listers, B-listers, offbeat actresses, star-daughter or wife, and many other useless categories, but Kangana Ranaut is above all and is far ahead of her peers.
She has won three national awards, and now she is ready with her three magnum movies Thalaivi, Dhaakad, and Tejas, which is the costliest and one of its kind woman-centric film, which makes her unique in every sense.
If we see her peers’ achievements like those of Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, who debuted one or two years after Kangana, who are also doing great work, they stand one place below the queen. Neither do they have any national award nor any women-centric highest grosser movie.
If I see the kind of art she showcases and the art her peers showcase, she again bags the first position. The kind of movies they do, and the kind she does, speak a lot about this and make her unique.
They are far behind Kangana. If I consider performances, forget about her recent performances, her peers are not close to her performance in her debut movie itself.
She is vocal and is termed as a person who is difficult to work with. She is the catalyst who has fastened the process of making a special position for a woman in the industry.
She is the trailblazer while her peers follow her. She has done great work and is doing many other amazing things. She has achieved all this without any big star backing or any godfather.
She is intelligent, brave, and beautiful. She is not a conventional heroine. She is unique, and every step she takes makes her stand out.
