Ever since she became a most demanding actress in Bollywood she never looked back and tried to bag a role in Khan’s starrer film. However, it is every actress’s dream to act with Salman, Shahrukh and Aamir who have a huge fan following among the audiences. But it is our Bollywood queen who now changed her perspective to chasing other’s popularity and make it own. During an interview with Rajeev Masand, Kangana revealed that she doesn’t fancy working with the Khans as it has no longevity. 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.”
But does that mean she has any bitterness against any of the Khans?
“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,” she said.
