Kangana Ranaut is an Indian actress and filmmaker who works in Hindi films.


Kangana Ranaut's Queen has clocked another year today, on the 7th of March, 2022. Directed by Vikas Bahl, the film received a lot of love and appreciation from cine-goers and critics alike. The story goes like this: a shy, diffident, yet excited Rani gets stood up by her husband-to-be just a few hours before their wedding. Shattered and shocked, Rani decides that wedding, or no wedding, she is going on her honeymoon to Paris. It is when she takes this journey across oceans, that Rani truly becomes her name, ‘Queen’, as she blossoms with newfound confidence, freedom, joy, and self-worth. Partly emotional, but mostly fun and funny, Queen continues to be one of the most-loved Hindi films made in recent years.

However, it is important to note that had it not been for certain rock-solid people in her life, Rani’s journey of self-discovery would have been much more difficult and prolonged than it actually was. Who are these people? Well, it’s none other than her family, who had her back at all times, even if that meant sending their daughter on a one-of-its-kind ‘solo honeymoon’ to another continent, without dwelling much on the perpetual dilemma of all desi families, “Log kya Kahenge? (What will people say?)” 

Apart from her family, there was also Vijaylakshmi, played by Lisa Haydon. Neither bound by blood nor by several years of friendship, Vijaylakshmi became the pillar of support that Rani needed before she found her foot in foreign lands.

As Queen turns 8 today, let us have a look at a few moments from the film, which prove that Queen’s family and best friend Vijaylakshmi empowered her in big ways and small, to go live her dreams. 

Sometimes, in life, all we need is for someone to remind us that life moves on and that everything’s going to be all right. This is what Rani’s grandmother does, but without sounding even a tad bit preachy. As she shares how she had to part with her own boyfriend during the partition, only to meet Rani’s grandfather, Daadi gives an important lesson, ‘Jo Milna Hota Hain naa Zindagi Mein, Usko koi Nahi rok Sakta’. (Nobody can fight fate) She also reminds Rani to live her life, as one day, everything will fall back into place. 

After Rani announces that she wants to go on her honeymoon, albeit without a husband, her family is taken aback. Surely, they have their concerns for their daughter. However, Rani’s father asks her two questions, “Do you want to go?” and “Is it important for you to go?” Rani answers that she wouldn’t go if he refuses. The next scene shows us that her parents and her younger brother are driving Rani to the airport. They are still worried, but that does not stop them from denying their daughter her happiness. Instead, they become the wind in her wings, as she takes flight. 

We all remember the iconic scene from the film, where an inebriated Rani breaks down, and goes, “Mera to Itna life Kharaab ho Gaya!” as Vijaylakshmi consoles her. But, here’s the thing: she didn’t have to. They barely knew each other. However, she patiently waited and listened to a drunk Rani, as she rambled on. By lending a shoulder, and a listening ear, Vijaylakshmi ensured that Rani did not feel alone in the country. It is after this scene, that we see Rani dancing in the bar like no one’s watching, without a care in the world.

As mentioned in the previous point, an inebriated Rani dances like she has no worry in this world. She’s at a nightclub, amidst literal strangers, and somehow, she is free from judgment. In fact, Vijaylakshmi dances along with her. Amid this, Rani is reminded of a similar time, when she was dancing at a party back home. The only difference was, that her ex-boyfriend Vijay chided and demotivated her, while Vijaylakshmi, cheered her on.

The world of cinema is abundant with scenes wherein a couple romantically gazes at one of the most breathtaking wonders of the world, the Eiffel Tower. But, in Queen, this trope is broken as two friends, and not lovers, marvel at the thing of beauty. Rani always wanted to see the Eiffel Tower with her ex-partner Vijay. So, what if he’s not there? The Eiffel Tower continued to be as stunning as it always had been. With Vijaylakshmi, Rani is reminded that it’s important to never stall one’s dreams just because we are alone on the road. 

Among the stars who always manage to nail airport looks, Kangana Ranaut's name shines right at the top. The Dhaakad actress often serves up stylish airport looks and leaves fans in awe. Speaking of this, on Tuesday morning, Kangana headed out of the city and this time, her airport look was all about comfort with style. The Dhaakad star was seen arriving at the airport in a floral maxi dress and her offbeat boho look certainly grabbed all the attention.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Kangana Was last seen in Thalaivii with Arvind Swami. The film managed to impress the star's fans and her portrayal of J Jayalalithaa won praise. Now, she will be seen in Dhaakad as Agent Agni. The film also stars Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta. The actioner is directed by Rajneesh Ghai and is set to release on May 27, 2022. Besides this, Kangana will also be seen in Tejas. The film is directed by Sarvesh Mewara and is backed by Ronnie Screwala. 

Kangana Ranaut is one of the biggest Bollywood stars currently. Ever since she announced her movie Dhaakad fans have not been able to keep calm. The actress has been sharing pictures and videos from the sets of her film and that got all the fans even more excited. We will also see Arjun Rampal alongside the actress in the film. Today taking to her Instagram handle Kangana shared yet another still from the movie announcing that the movie will be released in 4 languages on May 27, 2022. 

The multi-lingual Pan-India film was to be released in April but with the third wave hitting the country, the makers decided to shift the release to May. In the picture that Kangana shared, she can be seen clad in black attire with a gun in her hand and can be seen with an intense look on the battlefield. She captioned the image, “The unstoppable force of #AgentAgni is fast approaching! The action spy thriller #Dhaakad will set the big screen on fire in 4 languages - Hindi, Tamil, Telugu & Malayalam on 27th May 2022.”

The film will be available in four languages including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam. This is Kangana Ranaut's second pan India outing after the thunderous success of Thalaivii, based on the life of Jayalalitha. Kangana Ranaut says, “The film had to be made on a certain scale that had to be tailored to the vast vision of its makers. India has never seen a women action entertainer of this scale. A story as paramount as this should reach maximum eyeballs and I am happy to announce that Dhaakad would be released in multiple languages. I can’t wait for the audience to meet Agent Agni. She will blow their minds with her fury and power.”

Dhaakad was directed by Razneesh Razy Ghai and produced by Deepak Mukut and Sohel Maklai and co-produced by Hunar Mukut. Presented by Soham Rockstar Entertainment Pvt Ltd in association with Kamal Mukut, Sohel Maklai Productions, and Asylum films, Dhaakad is slated to release on May 27, 2022.

As per the latest reports, the Sessions Court in Mumbai reserved its order on Kangana Ranaut's plea to transfer the defamation case filed by lyricist Javed Akhtar against her. Ranaut’s plea was heard at the Dindoshi Sessions Court by Additional Sessions Judge Shridhar Bhosle yesterday, February 25. The court will be delivering the order on March 9.

Kangana had challenged the Sessions Court order in January and had filed a fresh plea seeking the transfer of all her legal proceedings citing that the Andheri court has harmed her image. Kangana approached the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (CMM) stating that the charges made against her were ‘bailable, non-cognizable, and compoundable’. However, the Andheri Court ‘misused power’ to cause injury to Ranaut’s reputation, even before her trial, the actress alleged in the plea.

On the other hand, Javed Akhtar's advocate Jay K Bharadwaj said in response to the allegations that the very basis of Ranaut’s application is based on the “apprehension that the Andheri Magistrate is biased”. He further said that Kangana’s motive is to delay the proceedings by filing various petitions and to harass Javed Akhtar, who despite being a senior citizen, has been appearing before the Andheri Magistrate court. 

For the unversed, Javed Akhtar had filed a defamation case against Kangana claiming that her statements that aired on a television news channel can be considered defamatory under Sections 499 and 500 of the Indian Penal Code. Kangana too filed a cross-complaint against Akhtar alleging criminal conspiracy and outraging modesty by invading her privacy through a criminal complaint.

Although Kangana had sought the transfer of her own application from the Andheri Court as well, the CMM court rejected that order in December 2021. The actress has, however, not challenged that order yet.

Red is one of the most basic colors that there is. Though it is not new in the fashion world, it never gets old. The Bollywood celebrities now normally make their special red carpet appearances and promotional appearances in gowns which has indeed made the haute couture trend boom for parties, weddings, and special events. While Nora graced our feeds in a crimson red strapless gown, Kangana opted for a wine red one for a trailer launch. 

Nora made our hearts flutter yet again as she posted pictures of herself in a romantic red gown. She served elegance and boss lady vibes in the eye-catching dress. The red gown called the Deja Sunset Dress was from the shelves of the international clothing label Tarik Ediz and is worth Rs. 88,588. The ensemble featured a draped effect all over, a corseted bodice, a risqué thigh-high slit on the side, and a figure-sculpting silhouette that accentuated her hourglass frame. The backless attire also bore a floor-sweeping that lent a modern and bold touch to her look.

Kangana has received immense praise for her performances in films like Queen, Woh Lamhe, and Tanu Weds Manu to name a few.

The Manikarnika actress was seen donning a white tee which she paired with checkered green pants. Kangana layered up with a red and grey checkered coat and wrapped up the look with a pair of grey shoes. Kangana styled her hair in a high bun, and also wore a white mouth mask as per the Covid-19 safety guidelines.

Along with the picture, Kangana wrote, "Some memory my phone threw at me when we were on a flight together and had a conversation…I rarely do that but glad I captured the moment now wonder when will we travel again!” Such a sweet moment.

Kangana Ranaut’s Thalaivii which was released last year gained appreciation from the audience as well as critics. The movie happens to be the biopic of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa. Kangana played the role of the legendary politician and depicted her life journey in the film.

Elaborating on the choice of casting, Kangana said that both the actors were well-suited for the storyline. Revealing that she was warned, Kangana said, "Mujhe sab me about warning Kiya that Iske against, Chahe jo Bhi age gap hai ya jo Bhi hai, yeh meri story ko suit Karta hai (Everyone warned me against casting them together but whatever the age gap is, it suits my story),” the actress told reporters.

The concept of the show is 16 celebrities stuck in jail and how they will have to earn every basic necessity. While the winner of the particular task will get the decided prize, the rest of the members will go through some cruel and harsh treatment just like in a normal jail.

A good and fitting overhaul starts with outfits that can take you to more events than one can name. For a fact we all know, you want to extend the party goer life and make it a weekly thing because who doesn't love a goo breather? We too are sailing on the same boat and while we're at it, we went on a search, and trust us the bombshell in us is highly pleased. 

That's when we rightly found Kangana Ranaut's looks for Lock Upp, a reality show's promos. Girl, how are you so perfectly fab is the question we ask for the millionth time. Take a look at three looks because you won't settle with just one, that's how bookmark-worthy these look. Shimmer can never be the wrong place to start proved Celebrity stylist Sukriti Grover and the diva with Fjolla Nila's daisy dress in its silver avatar that entailed shoulder pads, yes the kind of sophistication we totally give a thumbs up to. The close-neck sequin gown hugged her figure with the ruched detail at the waist and the thigh-high slit looked like the one who has the head-turning knack figured. Adding more shine to her look were

Painting the town in white. I scream, you scream, we all scream for monochrome! The 34-year-old wore RSVP by Nykaa Fashion x Nikhil Thampi's white trench suit set came as a collaboration with RSVP. This consisted of high-waist flared pants and a vest-like plunging neckline crop top. Kangana sported the same makeup and hairdo as the above. 

You can't call it a party edit if you don't end it on a bang. And, that's why the best lies here. The House of Exotique's red bodycon dress had shoulder pads, full sleeves, and a close-neck. She said no to drama with this look and rounded it out with Aquamarine jewelry, and pointed-toe strappy heels that blended with her outfit's hue. her black ankle-strap heels from Runway Reinvented, aquamarine studs from Joolry, and Mozaati's rings. Her dramatic winged eyeliner and retro hairdo own the bonus points.
