Before this film, every time people asked me if failure throws me back, I knew the answer was no. Do I go into a low zone? Various people used that time of my life to direct their anger at me. Well, this time around I was affected. For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App now

Rangoon was mounted on a humungous budget and publicised around my character. Maybe when you are bigger and grow more, both success and failure become more of your responsibility.”

Not only was the Queen actor upset with the negative reviews her film was receiving but was also affected by people targeting its failure at her. “I felt Rangoon’s failure was targeted at me. Talking to Mid-Day, Kangana revealed that how her confidence hit a low after Rangoon failed to do well at box office. “I, for one, thought the film had all the ingredients to be a profitable business proposition. It was indeed a difficult time dealing with that phase, but not as much as it might have been for a few other people involved with the project.” Kangana also revealed that a scene where her character Julia whips herself brutally was cut from the film despite being applauded by the film’s unit at the time of filming. Even when my films don’t do as well, I don’t stop feeling strongly about issues. When something like that doesn’t fare well, you do feel like sh*t.”

Kangana Ranaut for once felt Rangoon had all the ingredients to be a profitable business proposition. We missed our shot at creating a glorious film by a small margin. But I don’t use opportunities of professional hallmark to lash out at people. The actor, who is known for launching a film single-handedly, was slammed for not being able to attract the movie buffs to the theatres. Hansal Mehta shares adorable selfie, see pic
Probably, Kangana was hinting at the entire Karan Johar nepotism controversy and Shekhar Suman taking a dig at her indirectly through a series of tweets when Rangoon emerged as a box-office non-starter. Ask her whether one unsuccessful film will stop her from speaking her mind and she says, “I am not outspoken because I feel I command a certain opening for films and enjoy a great deal of success at the movies. Something tells me that if it had (worked), they would have stayed quiet.”
On the work front, Kangana has wrapped up the shoot of Hansal Mehta’s Simran in which she plays a Gujarati NRI and will start shooting for Manikarnika in June. Vishal Bhardwaj’s latest offering Rangoon failed to hit the right chords with the moviegoers and the critics despite having a strong line of actors including Saif Ali Khan, Kangana Ranaut and Shahid Kapoor. I will speak regardless. I notice how people start talking irrationally if your film hasn’t worked.
