Kangana Ranaut Wiki

Initially, she intended to become a doctor, but her failed chemistry test in twelfth grade made her reconsider her career prospects. She relocated to Delhi at sixteen, where she joined the Asmita Theatre Group and trained under theatre director Arvind Gaur.

Ranaut made her film debut in the 2006 thriller Gangster and received critical acclaim for portraying emotionally intense characters in the dramas Woh Lamhe… (2006), Life in a… Metro (2007), and Fashion (2008). Her role in Fashion earned her the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress. She appeared in commercially successful films like Raaz: The Mystery Continues (2009) and Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai (2010) but was criticized for being typecast in neurotic roles. Her comic role in Tanu Weds Manu (2011) was well-received, but she appeared in a series of brief, glamorous roles in films that failed to propel her career forward.

Ranaut’s career prospects improved in 2013 when she played a mutant in the science fiction film Krrish 3, one of the highest-grossing Indian films. She won two consecutive National Film Awards for Best Actress for playing an abandoned bride in the comedy-drama Queen (2014). A dual role in the comedy sequel Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015) was the biggest-earning female-led Hindi film at the time. Her portrayal of the titular warrior in the biopic Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi (2019) and her part as a sportswoman in Panga (2020) jointly earned her a fourth National Film Award.

In 2020, Ranaut launched her own production company, Manikarnika Films, where she works as a director and producer. She has been credited in the media as one of the best-dressed celebrities and is known for being outspoken. However, her opinions have sometimes aligned with right-wing ideologies, and she has been involved in frequent personal and professional controversies.
