Actress Kangana Ranaut Said that she was an Unwanted Girl Child : Bollywood’s Queen Kangana Ranaut again proved that she deserves every bit of validation that the world has given her. Even though she is famous for her ‘blunt’ comments in the media, this time around, she chose to spoke about some of her unspoken and heart hurted incidents that took place in her life.
We are not going to make you more suspicious, coming to the point Kangana Confesed that she was An Unwanted Child of her parents. Didn’t need to surprised, we are not talking about about any ordinary girl but none other than Bollywood’s Queen Kangana Ranaut. On International women’s day Kangana Ranaut bared her heart like never before. Yes a girl who is credited with national awards.
Kangana, who was an elder sister Rangoli and a younger brother Akshat, confessed that when she was born, her parents weren’t too happy. She said:
“My parents had a child before Rangoli, who died within 10 days of his birth. He was called Hero. My parents couldn’t emerge from the loss of that baby boy. But then Rangoli happened and she was taken care of, there was a huge celebration.”
But before we know more about her confession. Lets’ take a look at her Family Background:
Born in Bhambla, Mandi district, a small town in Himachal Pradesh. Her father is Amardeep Ranaut is a businessman and contractor. Kangana often refers to her father as being a good man. Kangana Ranaut’s grandfather was an IAS officer who asked Kangana to drop the family surname after watching her kissing scene in her first film Gangster.
Kangana Ranaut’s mother, Asha is a school teacher and was the only one in the family who supported her daughter throughout. It must have required courage for Asha to support Kangana in her Bollywood dreams in the midst of so much opposition to it, in the family.
Kangana Ranaut is close to her elder sister, Rangoli and has been a source of immense support when Rangoli really needed it. Rangoli was in the news in 2006, when an unknown man threw acid on her face in Dehradun. Kangana Ranaut has a younger brother, Akshit who is just a year younger to Kangana. Ranaut initially aspired to become a doctor at the insistence of her parents.
Determined to build her own career path, she relocated to Delhi at age of sixteen, where she briefly became a model. After training under the theatre director Arvind Gaur, Ranaut made her feature film debut in the 2006 thriller Gangster, for which she was awarded the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut.
She also confessed that she was an ‘unwanted’ child for her family:
“But when I was born, my parents, my mother especially, couldn’t come to terms with that fact that they had another baby girl. I know these stories in detail because every time a guest visited, or there was a gathering, they repeated this story in front of me that how I was the unwanted child,”
With women-oriented films like Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns to her credits, it came as a shocker for her initially when she was made to feel that she didn’t ‘deserve’ to ‘belong’ to this universe:
“It’s very hard to live in an environment where you’re reminded, constantly told that your existence just happens to be here…that you are not meant to be here.”
“From my side, there was no acceptance to this fact that I am any less than anyone around me. So there was a certain discomfort that I felt growing up that I am not seen as I want to be seen as,” she said.
The “Queen” actress who had featured in Gangster (2006) ,Fashion (2008), Raaz: The Mystery Continues (2009),Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai (2010), Tanu Weds Manu (2011), Krrish 3 (2013), Queen (2014) and Tanu Weds Manu Returns (2015), .
Some of her best films till today said the glorification of women as “selfless” Indian ladies who only care about the happiness of the men in their lives should be stopped as it is regressive. The glorification of sisters, mothers as the selfless Indian women who will do ‘agni pariksha’ and the one who sees her own betterment only in the betterment of their husbands and fathers that has to stop. It’s very regressive”
For Kangana, major “discomfort” while growing up was when people around her kept on reminding the fact that men are SUPERIOR to women. She added:
But yes, Kangana we are proud of you. You have proved that women are no less than any man in any respect.
