Actor Kangana Ranaut took to Instagram recently to talk about being perceived as "badtameez (mannerless)" and talented at the same time by her colleagues, including filmmaker Hansal Mehta and actor Zeeshan Ayyub. She also compared herself with comic vigilante Batman, and called herself the GOAT (greatest of all time).
She wrote, "Yeh baat pe sab agree karte hai left right both wings. 1) ek toh main bahut badtmeez hoon 2) violent and extremist bhi hoon, I like violence and violence also likes me. 3) thodi bigadi hue aur bahut ziddi hoon. 40 aur bhayankar wali talented. Matlab G.O.A.T types. Isko kehte hain Batman.. wahi hoon main (This is something everyone can agree, despite political differences that I am very mannerless, violent, extremist, I am spoiled and stubborn; I'm also dangerously talented like greatest of all times kind. This is called being Batman, I am him.)"
Kangana also shared clips from Hansal and Zeeshan's interviews where the two talked about her. Hansal, who had a fallout with her during their film 'Simran,' said, "Adaakar matlab kamaal hai. Hindustan main shayad kam actresses aayi ho jaise Kangana hai. Jo unhone kaam kiya hai past main, voh bohot accha kaam kiya hai. Simran main, matlab voh film bhale hi thodi weak thi, lekin uss film main Kangana ke performance ko aap nahi fault kar sakte ho (She is a wonderful actress. There have been maybe only a few actresses in India like Kangana. Her work in the past has been fantastic. Even though Simran was a weak film, but you can't fault Kangana's performance in the film)."
In another interview, Zeeshan recently said, "There was a time when Kangana as an actor, was superlative, when she did Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns." Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap also appreciated her in a rare case. He added, "She is one of the finest actors. She is very sincere when it comes to work, there are other problems that she has. However, when it comes to her talent, nobody can snatch that away from her. What she has in herself, as an actor, as a sincere creative person also, nobody can take that away from her but yes, it is very difficult to deal with her."
On the work front, Kangana will be next seen in 'Chandramukhi 2,' followed by 'Tejas' in October. She also has 'Emergency' in the pipeline
