'Queen' of Popular Indian Cinema..Graceful Kangana Ranaut!

One of the favourite & Beautiful Actresses of Bollywood..Kangana Ranaut's birthday just happened! (She is 30 + now!) She achieved top position on our Popular Indian Screen with hardwork & talent only!

I first impressed by acting depth of Kangana's beautiful face in..Mohit Suri's film 'Woh Lamhe' (2006) which was a tribute by it's producer Mahesh Bhatt to late glamorous actress..Parveen Babi!

Small town pretty girl from Himachal Pradesh.. teenage Kangana chose her path & came to Delhi. There she entered in modeling & latter came to Mumbai to become an actress. In 2006 she appeared on screen in Mukesh Bhatt produced & Anurag Basu directed 'Gangster' with Emraan Hashmi! That year she won 'Filmfare's Best Debut award!

Then after worked in contemporary film 'Life in a Metro' (2007)..turning point came in her acting career with Madhur Bhandarkar's 'Fashion' (2008). She intensely played struggler in modeling. And she got first national award of 'Best Supporting Actress' for this role! But then she did few typecast roles in films like 'Raaz' (2009) and 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbai' (2010).

She then changed her screen appearance and in 2011 came as a happy go lucky girl in Anand Rai's film 'Tanu Weds Manu' (2011). This appealed masses a lot and film became hit!

In 2013 she acted with Hrithik Roshan in science fiction 'Krrish 3'. This screen association was also discussed. Before this it was with 'Raaz' co-actor.. Adhyayan Suman! But latter she concentrated on her acting career only!

In 2014 she came with best performance in Vikas Bahls' film 'Queen' (2014). She played role of Delhi girl from a traditional family..sets out on a solo honeymoon to Europe after her marriage gets cancelled! The way she showed the transition in her character during the journey was excellent. With this super hit film she proved that her female oriented film can gain equal big success in this male oriented film industry! She won 'Filmfare' and National Award of 'Best Actress' for this role!

In 2015 she again paired with R. Madhavan in a sequel 'Tanu Weds Manu Returns' (2015). She played different kind of dual roles superbly in it..for which she got 'Filmfare Critics Award'. And again won 'Best Actress National Award'! With such critically acclaimed roles and huge successful films she really became Queen of Bollywood!

Last year in Vishal Bhardwaj's film 'Rangoon' her portray of Julia is like a tribute to yesteryear's stunt queen on Indian cinema..Fearless Nadia! It shows that through her roles she raising voice of Woman Empowerment in our society!

Then released Hansal Mehta's 'Simran' for which apart from playing leading role she shared the screenwriting with Apurva Asrani! Before this she co-written the dialogues of her super hit film 'Queen'!..Now she will be making her production & directorial debut with an English short film 'The Touch'!

Within a span of 10 years only Kangana Ranaut established herself as one of the leading actresses of our Indian Cinema..which is really appreciable! She won several awards including 4 Filmfare and 3 National awards!

Now she is doing a great role of Rani of Jhansi in 'Zee Studio's 'Manikarnika-The Queen of Jhansi'! Best wishes for that!

I always admire her screen performances and independent style of life!

Wishing Her All The Best!!
