Why Is Kangana Ranaut Gangster Girl
Kangana Ranaut, who plays Mumbai gang-lord Manya Surve’s love interest in Shootout At Wadala (SAW), seems to be the all-time-favourite moll of gangster films.
Right from her film Gangster (2006), one has seen the pretty lady playing a gangster’s moll in many of the underworld films made in between. It’s not that she hasn’t played other characters but it’s the role as a gangster’s moll that has always helped her in bagging the brownie points.
“Kangana is the tender soul of a very dangerous and violent world depicted in SAW. And it’s amazing how she has portrayed the character of Vidya minus any star trappings. She completely surrendered to the role and made it all her own,” Gupta said in a statement.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh too praised Kangana saying: “Kangana delivers a wonderful performance (especially towards the final moments) and stands her own despite the presence of actors with challenging characters.”
Kangana, who seems to be unaffected by the success said, “I’m an actor. I get assignments, I do my work and I stay totally detached from my movies. It’s good if a film does well but that’s not going to change my attitude or commitment to my work.”
Meanwhile, she is next to be seen playing a gangster in Revolver Rani, a mujrawali in Rajjo, and a suburban Delhi woman who sets out on a honeymoon all by herself in Queen.
