Kangana Ranaut refused to work with Khans and Kumars to work in Dhaakad 

Actress Kangana Ranaut is currently gearing up for the release of her much anticipated action flick 'Dhaakad'. The film is first of its kind since it features a mainstream actress in the lead role of a full blown action hero. Naturally, Kangana is quite excited and confident about this project and in a recent media interaction, she shared that she had to turn down several films featuring "big heroes" in order to be able to play such a character.

She stated, "In so many ways the audience is also ready for women to take the lead. Another aspect is that I have had my own fair share of low points when I refused a lot of male-centric films, you know Khan-led films or Kumar-led films, all kinds of big hero films.”

Talking about her journey so far, Kangana shared that she never doubted herself even after constantly being questioned about her decisions. She said, "When you have a vision for the future, they say what’s wrong with her as this is the best time of her life. They say, ‘What are you doing? This is the best time of your life. Why are you saying no to these films? Why aren’t you at award functions? Why are you standing against fashion magazines? Why are you wasting your life?’ I would wonder why they think I am wasting my life. How do they think I have come so far? Do they think it is accidental?"

Kangana further added, "It was because I always thought that I also deserve as much as anybody else, and why should I think of me as a lesser being. I always had this vision that this (pointing towards Dhaakad poster) is possible. This day is possible. Of course, I did not plan it but I had the vision. I can’t execute it alone."

The actress concluded by saying, "I’d say that for a woman to have a successful journey, so many men have to support her. So, it is a combination of many things. I won’t say that it was entirely accidental. I can’t even say that I made it happen. I had a vision, and many things came together.”
