With a critically acclaimed movie, Queen, under her belt and another release, Revolver Rani, coming up, Kangana Ranaut is on a roll right now. But the actor wants to take it easy.

She’s looking forward to doing more quality cinema and isn’t worried about the competition anymore. 

"I want to work with actors like Aamir Khan and Irrfan Khan. I feel that I should collaborate with talented people and make the most of my limited time as an actor. I know for a fact that I’m not going to be acting all my life," says Kangana.

She also recently took a screenplay writing course in New York, US. So, does that mean she’s branching out? "I will eventually want to get to writing and directing," she says.

Kangana also wants to find a healthy work-life balance and says she’s ready to date someone cool. "I need to move away (from my work) and have a life. Ideally, I wouldn’t want to do so many movies at a time, but it’s come to such a stage that the movie offers are very tempting. But I’d like to be with someone who understands me," she says.

She’s also not worried about winning the Bollywood rat race. "I want to be in a zone in my life where I feel relaxed. And frankly, I’m getting there already. Who cares about being number one all the time? I want to do what makes me feel good and keeps me happy and peaceful," she says.
