Cinema has often shown men stalking women, but in a role reversal of sorts, Kangana Ranaut is peeping into the life of Rajkummar Rao in ‘Judgemental Hai Kya’. The actress terms her co-star ‘lucky’ for being stalked by her, while also stating that like the posters stating, ‘beware of Bobby’, her character in the film, the double faced-people and the shameful ‘movie mafia’ had to be beware of the real Kangana. The ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ star also lashed out at the journalists working to malign her for money.
Ahead of the release of ‘Judgementall Hai Kya’, Kangana spoke excusively to Republic Media Network. When asked about playing a stalker in the film and how one wouldn’t mind a stalker like the actress, she replied, “Rajkummar is lucky that I’m stalking him. The film is traces a different ideology. The ones who are mental are mental, but what about the normal people’s secrets and their crookedness. This is a competition between mental and normal in a way.”
The promos stated ‘Beware of Bobby’, her character in the film, but who are the people who should be beware of Kangana in real life, the actress said, “The ones who are clean-hearted or spontaneous, they like me a lot, but the ones who are double-faced (should be beware of her)."
When specifically asked who from the film industry needed to be beware of her, she said, “(Laughs) You know the names and I’m not here to scare anyone. I’m from a small town, want to live life on my own terms. Otherwise, why would I have left my father’s house? They took care of me and I never felt short of anything, but there was no freedom of expressing and no freedom to do what I wanted to do."
She continued, "Obviously, I was not going to listen to them. When I didn’t listen to my father, you expect me to listen to the shameful movie mafia. Should I zip my lips for these people. They are falsely under the impression that they will make me quiet and won’t let me do what I want to do, but I’ve come here to do what I want to. To earn money, make films or earn fame is not my objective, that keeps happening and many do it, I just want to do what I believe in, since that’s life.”
On her recent statement, “Meri wajah se kai logo ke chulhe jalte hai, mai nahi chahti hu wo chulhe jale’ upsetting people since most feel she needs media as much as media needs them, Kangana clarified, “I didn’t say it for the entire media fraternity. I’m only talking about those people, who I’ve named, who told me, ‘Give us more money.’ I stated during ‘Manikarnika’, the actors were interviewed and there were lies all around about their scenes being cut, and they told that the big people associated with the film called them and gave Rs 15-20 lakhs for media platforms only to malign me."
She further added, "They’d probably never get so much money to harm anyone, don’t you think this rate of damaging me is too much. I can understand Rs 1-2 lakh but Rs 15-20 lakh? Isn’t it too much only to spoil one day of mine, they were paying Rs 15-20 lakh. My point is that if they stop this mischief about me, they won’t get this money. With so many media persons, it has become a profession which isn’t appreciated much, a lot of young, bright minds are not appreciated. But then there are such people who work ‘underhand.’”
