Kangana Ranaut wants to do several things — open a restaurant, start her own boutique, even direct a movie. In a candid chat, she talks about her love for food and why she doesn’t want to be on Twitter.
You were supposed to have four releases this year, but now there’s just one.
Yes, it’s only Krissh 3 this year. I’m looking forward to it as the response to the promo has been great, and we don’t make too many superhero films. Karan Johar’s Ungli got pushed and Queen, too, was to release in October, but is now releasing in February 2014. And the producer of I Love NY doesn’t want to release it at all, it seems.
There had been a rumour that you auditioned for a Hollywood project. Do you have an agent there, or aspire to work there?
I’d love to do Hollywood films. They are on a different level. I haven’t got any agent. Queen will surely go to international film festivals and it will gain exposure.
Is turning a fashion designer or starting a boutique on your to-do list?
It’s too demanding to be a fashion designer. They work really hard to source fabric, get the right finish and put things together. It looks easy, but it’s not. Things I have on my wish list include directing a movie, opening a restaurant and, then, perhaps a boutique. I’m crazy about food. I love everything from karela to Italian cuisine.
What made you launch your own website?
I’m not on any social networking sites, but there are many fake ones (Twitter handles), so I thought about my own website. I want to connect with my fans but not all the time. I want to stay in touch when I have something to say. I don’t want to write stuff like ‘I’m having coffee’ or ‘I’m at the gym’. I will share ideas about food, books, fashion, among other things.
