Kangana Ranaut went to Vaishanodevi temple on Sunday to seek blessings from the goddess for her film Queen that releases this Friday. It was supposed to be a quick in-and-out of Jammu trip. The actress was to land on the top of the slopes by chopper, have darshan, and then head for her flight back to Mumbai. But weather conditions made it impossible for the chopper to fly.
The horses that usually ply devotees up and down the slippery slopes were also not doing their run on that day. So the actress had to trudge up the mountains for two hours with her younger brother in tow.
What made it worse was the biting cold. North India is experiencing a extended winter and freezing temperature. The actress laughed, “I was really made to work for those blessings. But for the last leg of the walk, we got a moto-cart to take us up.”
