A few years ago Aamir Khan dropped Kangana Ranaut (Jiah Khan’s role) from Ghajini following a misunderstanding. Recently when quizzed by Karan Johar on his show Koffee With Karan about the sexiest actress in Bollywood, he named Kangana. The actress, who is currently in Switzerland, reacts to Aamir’s comment with her trademark humour, “I think Mr Aamir Khan is a highly intellectual man. His definition of sexy isn’t like that of a layman. He would find honest and courageous women sexy, I appreciate this compliment. It encourages me to be myself and I think Mr Khan has great taste!”
When asked if she agrees with the sexy statement she says, “Yes, I feel I am sexy because I am self-made, trustworthy and honest. And these are the same qualities that I also find very sexy in men and women.”
She, however, feels that the sexiest actress in Bollywood is Deepika Padukone. “I find Deepika very sexy. She is self-made like me. When I watch her films, I find something very vulnerable and sensitive behind those beautiful large eyes.”
She believes what’s sexy about man is different from what is sexy about a woman. “What I find sexy: A man who is gentle and sensitive towards women. Men are strong and it’s obvious but when they do things like taking their mothers out for shopping and open doors for their girlfriend I find that very endearing. For me sexy and chivalry go hand-in-hand in a man. Being chivalrous is sexy.”
Kangana’s royal trip
She is in Switzerland at the Gstaad Palace for a show hosted by ASMALLWORLD, a members-only travel and social club that hosts about 300 events every year worldwide for members.
