Kangana Ranaut is one of those rare Bollywood actors who speak exactly what is on their mind whether it is about the gender wage gap in the industry or her choice of films or the politics of the country. 

Recently, in an interview, Kangana, who plays the role of a Kabaddi player in her next film Panga, opened up about her struggles when she left home and how she then dealt with her early days in Bollywood the acid attack on her sister Rangoli.

"I was just 19, on the threshold of a bright career, when the attack happened and it was a long, hard struggle to deal with this kind of perverse, sexist cruelty. Financially too, I was not strong back then. Girls around me would feel depressed by a bad hair day or because a meal was not to their liking. I was grappling with something far more real and yet had no time to sit and cry. I did tacky films, took on roles I did not deserve, accepted guest appearances, so my sister could be treated by the best surgeon in India. It took 54 surgeries," she said. 

She further opened up about how her experiences made her be the strong, independent woman she is today. 

"I fell into bad company straightaway. Some people took advantage of the fact that I was alone and couldn’t confide in my parents, and I’ve experienced the worst a person can go through. It toughened me up and made me the person I am. But I wouldn’t want my children to go through such extremes. I would want to be there for them," she added.
