Mumbai: Who would not want to see two superstars from Bollywood- Kangana Ranaut and Shah Rukh Khan- to come together for a film? As much as Kangana fan girls on SRK, she believes with utmost certainty that the Baadshah of Bollywood and Queen are never going to be seen in one frame.
In a recent with Rajeev Masand, the three-time National Award winner elaborates on her no-Khans policy. When asked about if she thinks not working with the Khans of Bollywood would sabotage the chances of having a long and glorious career in films, she said, “In fact, there is no longevity with working with Khans. It’s the other way around because what I am today, where I stand today, as the leading lady doing a film with a Khan, let’s be rational about it. Where would it take me? Can it take me a notch higher than where I already am? It cannot! What can it give me that I have already not achieved? I can’t see a single thing…if you can tell me."
"I have popularity, I have built a fan following of mine, where do I go from here. The only way I can last is by growth. That I will only get if I go a notch higher than my last film. In a film, there’s only one hero. There are exceptions of course. Let’s talk about a Khan film. Who is the hero in that film? When I have done and working on films that give me the possibility of building a brand of my own individually, it will be very stupid of me to go and stand behind someone else and try and encash their popularity," she added.
Kangana insists that she harbours no hard feelings but when it comes to working with Aamir-Shah Rukh-Salman, not happening.
“Not really. Aamir is kind to discuss his films with me. It’s not that I have a different attitude towards them when I am around them. My attitude remains the same. Until Queen, I was very open to working the Khans. After Tanu Weds Manu, I realised that if in a film, I am not the hero, it will disappoint everyone. It’s a very professional strategy that I have adopted. And Shah Rukh sir, I am a huge fan. It’s very unfortunate that our paths will never cross,” explained the actress.
