Kangana Ranaut Claps Back at Career Change Speculations Amidst Political Foray


Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut has forcefully responded to critics and online commentators who suggested her recent move toward politics was due to unsuccessful films. Ranaut, known for her no-nonsense attitude, addressed the allegations head-on by maintaining that her demand in the film industry remains unchanged. Citing the unpredictability of the industry and drawing parallels with megastar Shah Rukh Khan’s career trajectory, she articulated, “No one in the whole world faces such situations. Shah Rukh Khan had no successful films for 10 years, then Pathaan worked. I had no successful films for eight years, then Queen worked, followed by Manikarnika. Even now, there might be a very successful hit. Nowadays, this doesn’t happen.’’

Equating herself and Khan to the ‘last generations of stars’, Ranaut also shared a stern view on the emerging OTT platforms, doubting their capacity to create stars like traditional cinema has. The outspoken actress emphasized that both she and Khan have withstood the test of time, asserting they remain in high demand by the grace of God.
