She is fearless. She is beautiful. She is one-of-a-kind. She is a rare breed of leading actresses that doesn’t shy away from calling a spade a spade. In today’s movie scene, Kangana is a name to reckon with. 

From humble beginnings to blockbuster successes, Kangana has come a long way. And mind you, without any godfathers in the business to land her any dreamy roles. 

If you are a Kangana fan too, you can catch her talk about her #PassionToPaycheck story live at the Signature Startup Masterclass Season 3 in Pune on January 11th, 2019.

For now, let’s go back in time and look at all the films that made Kangana Ranaut who she is today! 

Gangster (2006)

Kangana made her debut in the Bollywood world with this movie when she was all of 17! Yes, 17. And to think how effortlessly she portrayed the character with such ease just goes on to show she was meant to be in the movies. And boy are we glad? ​

Woh Lamhe (2006) 

We can never forget how Kangana played the role of a schizophrenic with such impeccable brilliance. She got into the skin of the character of a tormented and vulnerable girl and through her superlative performance made us see how she fought the demons inside her.​

Life in a Metro (2007)

Even though this musical drama had an ensemble cast, Kangana held her own in the movie. This isn’t a small feat when you have stalwarts like Kay Kay Menon sharing the screen space with you. Kangana went on to receive slews of critical acclaim for her role in the movie.

Fashion (2008)

Kangana received the National Award for this movie. Need we say more? Not only did she nail the role of a badass model but she brought to light the dark side of glamour.

Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai (2010)

Even though Kangana never performed a lead role in the movie till this one, she left her mark and how! She was confident in her role as Haji Mastan’s wife and transformed from a movie star to an every-day woman with incredible conviction.

Tanu Weds Manu (2011) & Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015)

Tanuja Trivedi felt like an extension of the real Kangana herself in the movie, or is it just us? The “bubbly” and vivacious character had us head over heels in love with Kangana right from the first scene. The innocence of Kusum in the sequel is still one of our favourite roles of hers.

Queen (2014)

It won’t be wrong to say that Queen was only and only about Kangana. She absolutely owned it #LikeABoss and inspired so many others to be comfortable in their own skin and explore the world on your own. Did we miss out on any of your favourite Kangana movies?
