Kangana Ranaut: My family not supporting me was ‘the worst phase of my life’

Bollywood beauty Kangana Ranaut made her debut with director Arvind Gaur’s 2006 directorial Gangster opposite to Emraan Hashmi and Shiney Ahuja. She gave an outstanding performance and received Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. Since then, the Queen actor hasn’t looked back.

Kangana, who is all set for the release of her next movie ‘Panga’, still feels like struggling to get a desirable place in the Bollywood industry. According to her, she wants to show her family that she is way more talented and their decision of not supporting her for acting was totally wrong.

In a recent interview, the actress talked about how it focuses on the role a supportive family plays in helping one achieve his/her dreams. However, she still feels that her family should have shown some support when she stepped into the acting field.


She says: “I have seen both sides. I have also seen how miserable your life can be without your family. Initially, when I started out, my family did not support me and that was probably the worst phase of my life. Even though at that age I must have felt… to hell with them, over time, I realised that there are only those many people in the world who will be there with you all along. That’s when I decided to mend my relationship with them and be close to them, because the distance had become way too much. I wanted to nurture our relationship and have people around me, who I could share my life with. That’s precisely what we are talking about in Panga, too, that building a relationship with your close ones is everyday work and a process.”

Kangana Ranaut also talked about how she and her family are a rock-solid support system for each other now.

“Even now, while my family and I are there for each other like rock, we can’t take it for granted. We have to work on it and invest in it emotionally, every day. I also think that I could go back and mend my relationship with them because of my success.”
