It’s been a good year for actress Kangna Ranaut, and she’s quick to touch-wood, as she admits that. Personally, she admits to being single. Sexy, yet single?
“It’s more like sexy and single, Wow!” she laughs. But probe further and she reveals. “I’ve been naive when it comes to matters of the heart. I’m going to be really careful about my choices now.”
So is she looking for love? “Most certainly. But I’m not desperate for it. Anyways where are the real men? Whoever it is, I want the person to love me, not my screen image. I’d rather be single than be in a disrespectful relationship.”
What about reports of her Dhamaal 2 co-star Mallika Sherawat feeling insecure because of Kangna’s ‘sexy-quotient’? “First of all I don’t know what anyone means by sexy. For me, it’s more than just being desirous or having a hot-bod. Being sexy is not a lipstick that you can just apply. It is what you are, and stems from your confidence and convictions. No one can take away that from you. So, why feel insecure about your own sexiness? As for Mallika, she has all my respect. I don’t know anything beyond that,” she counters.
The success of the recent Once Upon a Time in Mumbai has clearly washed over the disappointment of Kites, and now she’s excited about her future releases including Knock Out, Tanu Weds Manu, No Problem, Game and Rascals. There’s speculation about her being a top choice for Rajkumar Santoshi’s Power. It’s a line-up that stresses how Kangna’s now ‘serious’ about playing the quintessential Bollywood heroine. “It’s fun to play the ‘heroine’ instead of being an actress always. For now, I want to do everything filmi in the truest sense including the latka-jhatka dance numbers,” she smiles.
