My success is sweet revenge against controversy: Kangana Ranaut

MUMBAI: Actress Kangana Ranaut said on Tuesday the controversy about her relationship with Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan was “extremely alarming”.


Kangana said she is being called a “whore” because she is a successful, sexually active woman. “If a woman is super successful, she is called a psychopath. If a woman is sexually active, she’s called a whore,” she told in an interview.

When she was asked to react on her public war with Hrithik Roshan, the three-time National Award winner said, “Recent turns of event have been extremely alarming for me. My success is my sweet revenge against controversy.” She added, “I am a self-pleaser, not a people-pleaser.”

Commenting on the accusations levelled against her, Kangana said, “I don’t find it humiliating when they call me a psychopath or witch.” Defending her stand on her legal battle with her Krissh 3 co-star, she said, “I will not give my view about something which will be decided in courts. I cannot pretend to be sorry for things for which I am not.”

Kangana and Hrithik are involved in a bitter public spat which started when the latter sent her a legal notice, demanding an apology for allegedly referring to him as her “silly ex” in an interview.
