Kangana Ranaut has been on a high since the success of Queen.

The actor, it has been reported, is being offered many films, and is extremely choosy when it comes to selecting projects. So, although she has signed an Indo-French movie, she has opted out of an Italian film offered to her opposite actor Massimiliano Gallo.

Kangana was offered the lead role while she was pursuing a film-making and screenplay-writing course in the US. "Director Edoardo De Angelis got in touch with her, but she said that she’d take a call only after returning to Mumbai," reveals a source close to the actor. 

Kangana, too, was initially delighted with the development. The actor, in an earlier interview, told us, "I was offered the lead role opposite Massimiliano. I am still contemplating it because I have almost six projects lined up, and that has me booked till the beginning of 2016."

But now, we have come to know that she has rejected the film. "Kangana read the script, liked the subject and communicated it to the makers. However, she opted out of the project in the second week of August citing date issues. The film is to go on the floors in the next two months, and she didn’t want to disrupt her prior commitments," adds the source.

When contacted, the actor’s spokesperson confirms the developments, saying, "Yes, Kangana was offered the role opposite Massimiliano in an Italian film, but had to turn it down as her dates are completely blocked."
