From Sweet To Crass: Kangana Ranaut Has Done It All!

One need only look at the trailer of Revolver Rani, in which Kangana Ranaut plays the crass, crude, gun-toting Alka Singh to know just how versatile the actress is. Her character in her upcoming film is as far removed from the sweet, innocent, shy Rani, who won our hearts over in the recent surprise hit, Queen.

Which led us to believe that Kangana Ranaut is possibly the most versatile Bollywood heroine we have today. Aside from, of course, that glorious chameleon known as Vidya Balan. Kangana, however, looks to be following in the senior actress’ footsteps pretty quickly.

A quick look at her filmography too would reveal the versatile nature of her craft. In her less-than-a-decade-long career, Kangana has done various roles. How she managed to avoid being typecast as a drunken, traumatised, drugged-up heroine post her debut film Gangster and a subsequent award-winning role in Fashion, is the stuff of film legend.

For she has done just that- pushed the envelope with every role she has attempted, and given it her 110%. Her second film Woh Lamhe too saw her play the vulnerable, harassed, mentally unstable woman with a traumatic past. Then came her underplayed performance in the ensemble film, Life…In A Metro.

But the turning point for Kangana’s acting skills came, when she won the National Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of troubled supermodel Shonali (which was allegedly based on the life of a real-life supermodel, Shivani Kapur) in Madhur Bhandarkar’s film Fashion.

Since then, Kangana has been seen in diverse roles; such as the spoilt brat Gina in the Hrithik Roshan - Barbara Mori starrer (and debacle, might we add) Kites, the muse Rehana in Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, the bindaas small-town girl in Tanu Weds Manu, and the evil supervillain Kaya, in Krrish 3.

Interestingly, it was Kangana’s portrayal of Tanu, in the 2011 sleeper hit Tanu Weds Manu, that got her noticed by Vikas Bahl, who then believed she could carry off his Queen effectively. And carry it off she did.

All eyes are on Kangana Ranaut, to see what magic she will create on celluloid, in her next- Revolver Rani. She is seen as the epitome of heightened female sexuality in the film- and men around her seem mere puppets in her hands.

It will be most interesting to see the otherwise sweet and demure Kangana Ranaut mouth profanities, sling guns and kill people with a cold-hearted, practiced brutality in Revolver Rani. Her character in the film looks wacky, mad and almost as wild as her big, curly hairdo.
