Happy birthday Kangana Ranaut: She is always happiest with her nephew. Check out their 10 cutest pics
Actor Kangana Ranaut celebrates her 32nd birthday on Saturday. The actor is coming off the success of her latest film, Manikarnika, and is now looking forward to her next, Mental Hai Kya. While there is still a long time until we see her back on the big screen, we have just the right treat for her fans on her birthday.
Kangana was born in Bhambla, a small town in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh. While her parents wanted her to be doctor, she decided that it wasn’t what she wanted for herself. She decided to go to Delhi, work for a modelling agency and also joined a theatre troupe. When her work as an actor got her a lot of compliments, she decided it was time to go to Mumbai for a career in movies.
She landed her first project in 2006 with director Anurag Basu’s Gangster. She won several awards for her role of an alcoholic woman in love with a criminal. She was then seen in movies such as Woh Lamhe and Life In A Metro.
Then came Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion and she was applauded for her role as a drug addict supermodel. While she wasn’t the film’s lead, her work in the film won her the National Award for her supporting role.
But that award didn’t spell instant success for Kangana. Her next phase in Bollywood wasn’t as good. She starred in movies likes Game, Rascals and Miley Naa Miley Hum. This phase also gave her one of her best films, Tanu Weds Manu.
She then worked on Queen and the film marked a new beginning for Kangana’s career. The film was an unexpected hit and earner Kangana great kudos for her work. Then came Tanu Weds Manu Returns, which established her as one of the most sought after female actors in Bollywood.
Though there was a slight lull after the two films—Katti Batti, Rangoon and Simran—she bounced right back with Manikarnika, a film that she produced and even directed.
Even in a career as hectic as hers, Kangana has always found time for her family. She goes on holidays with her sister Rangoli and the rest of their family. She spends her vacations at her home in Manali, cuddling with her favourite person, hew nephew Prithvi Raj. So, to celebrate her birthday, we bring you her 10 best pictures with Prithvi.
