Film industry is an insecure place: Kangana Ranaut

Mumbai, Sep 8 (IANS) Actress Kangana Ranaut, who has no film background, says the film industry is not a secure place to be in. She says there are times when she has movie offers, but there are days when she has no projects in hand.

"I won't say I don't want to be where I am today, but the industry is an insecure place to be in. This industry is like one fine day you get up and you get a call for work and at times you don't get work for six months. It's not just about me. I think everybody has their own insecurities," Kangana told IANS.

She said that it is nice to have her elder sister Rangoli around.

"I have been without my family in this city (Mumbai) for a long time so it's nice to have your family around. My sister works with me. She handles my work, manages everything and I only act," said the 26-year-old.

"Its not about me being successful or unsuccessful ... no matter what happens, she is always there for me. It's a great feeling. This industry is a place which can tend to be an insecure place so it's good to have somebody around who doesn't judge you," she added.

Kangana has made a place for herself in the Hindi film industry, but she has one regret.

"I have learnt everything here, but my only regret is that I wish I had better guidance in the beginning of my career. I wish somebody was there to guide me. The place where I come from, they don't give much importance to art. I didn't know how to behave or what expectations people have from me," she said.

Kangana, who impressed audiences with her acting skills in movies like "Gangster", "Fashion" and "Tanu Weds Manu", is also praised for her fashion sense. She says her inspiration comes from "old Hollywood".

"I don't have any fashion guru as such, but I travel a lot and take inspiration from different places. Old Hollywood is my all-time inspiration," said the curly haired beauty who is looking forward to the last quarter of 2013.

"(The year) 2013 so far has been dull, but towards the end it's exciting. I have some good films coming up so I am really looking forward to it," she said.

She will be soon seen in superhero movie "Krrish 3".
