I'd like to direct soon: Kangana Ranaut

Her unconventional looks and frizzy hair landed her atypical roles in Bollywood. Kangana Ranaut now harbours a dream of donning the director's hat and already has a script in mind.

"I'm quite happy with how my career is moving, but in terms of the future, soon, I guess I'd like to direct a 
movie. I have a script in mind. Let's see where it goes," Kangana said in an interview. She revealed her plans, but refrained from divulging details.

At the moment, Kangana's kitty is full of light-hearted films like Double DhamaalNo Problem, and Tanu Weds Manu. She is also doing RascalsGame and Tezz.

Her next release is 
Knock Out where she will share screen space with with SanjayDutt and Irrfan Khan. Kangana plays a journalist in the psychological thriller, which is releasing Oct 15.

Knock Out is a very different film from anything I've done before. The entire film takes place in two hours and was almost shot in one location. It's a fast paced action thriller that I think people will really enjoy," she said.

Directed by Mani Shankar, 
Knock Out is a Bollywood adaptation of Hollywood filmPhone Booth. After playing all kinds of roles, Kangana will be seen as a scribe in the movie.

"I studied the body language of journalists reporting from crime scenes for my role, but there was this one point in the film where I actually got a chance to experience the urgency and intensity journalists experience every day.

"This was a shot where a car was supposed to fly up in the air and land on the ground. Instead of landing like it was supposed to, the car caught fire and came spinning at a very fast speed towards me. I managed to get out of its way in time, but got a real first-hand experience of the dangers journalists face on the job," she said.

The actress has given a makeover to the image of crime journalists by sporting stilettos and off shoulder dresses in the film.

Apart from acting, she is also trying her hand at designing. She has herself created clothes for the movies 
Rascals and Tezz. She may soon launch her clothing line.

When asked whether she was looking for love, she said: "With so much work on my plate, I'm happily single for now!"

Lesson One: Many Sounds In English Are Not In Your Native Language

The main reasons why speaking English is so hard

This special pronunciation section will explain to you why English is hard to speak correctly and give you some help on improving your pronunciation. These are the main reasons why English is so hard. There is a lesson for each one.
Note that the pronunciation examples are in American English accent. In the last lesson you will find American and British English examples.
It is likely that some of the sounds that are common in English are not used in your native language. The most common ones are 'r' as in 'right', 'l' as in 'light' and the 'th' sound as in 'thing'. The 'th' sound, where your tongue is between your teeth is uncommon in other languages.
The other sounds that you will most likely find difficult are the 'moving vowel' sounds or "diphthongs".

Pronouncing Dipthongs

Here are some examples of diphtongs:hi  price  eye  by 
The vowel sound in these words changes as you say them, it starts off as 'a' and becomes 'e' Here is a picture showing the starting and finishing mouth positions:
vowel sounds
Notice that your mouth position changes considerably when saying this vowel. You start off with your mouth open and your tongue at the bottom of your mouth, and go to having your mouth closed with your tongue at the top of your mouth.
It is very common for students learning English to have difficulty making both sounds. Many students pronounce just one one of these sounds, either the starting 'a' sound or the finishing 'I' sound. To speak well and be understood, you need to make both sounds.
Here is another example of a diphthong:
This is the sound in words like'boat'  'goat'  and 'coat' 
Your tongue needs to start off near the middle of your mouth, with your mouth open. Then your tongue needs to move back and up slightly at the same time as you close your lips. Your lips also need to be 'rounded' slightly.
Here is a technique you can use to feel the difference in different mouth shapes:
  1. Start by putting your finger on your lips like you are saying 'shhhhh' and telling someone to be quiet. (Perhaps you don't make this gesture in your culture, or it is rude to do so. Actually, it can be a little rude in European cultures also, so you need to use it with care. You're most likely to see it among audiences at live shows, at the movie theatre, or in the library if someone is rudely talking.)
  2. Hold your finger still - don't move it when your lips move. Now make an 'ee' sound. You should feel your lips come back to be flat against your teeth. Your finger should now not be touching your lips.
  3. Now make an 'au' sound sticking your lips out. You should feel your finger be pushed out, away from your mouth. This is what 'rounding' your lips means.
  4. Now say the word 'goat' with your finger touching your lips, and check that your lips become rounded at the end of the vowel sound.
  5. Well done! You are probably making the vowel sound correctly now.
As you know, the 'th' sound can also be difficult. Here is how you need to make the 'th' sound:
Can you see how your tongue needs to between your teeth so that someone watching you can actually see the tip of it? Many people find this strange to do, but if you do not "poke your tongue out" a little in this way, you will not pronounce the sound correctly.

Pronouncing The "th" Sound In English.

The 'th' sound is quite common in English and found wherever the letters 'th' are found together. Here are two common examples for you:Mouth  Thumb 

Usually, It's Better To Order "Rice" Than "Lice".
The Difference Between The "
r" And "l" Sounds.

The R and L Tongue Positions

r l
The images above illustrate the difficulty in distinguishing the two tongue positions; however there are important differences:
For 'r':
  • Your tongue curls up around the edges, and you blow air through the middle of your tongue.
  • The top part of your tongue does not touch the top of your mouth.
  • Your lips should be slightly rounded.
For 'l':
  • The top of your tongue should touch the top of your mouth.
  • Your lips should not be rounded
Most people say 'l' correctly however for further help with 'r' you may find the following video helpful

Native speakers use this word all the time in casual English. Sometimes we pronounce the word as “Chillin
It means something like “relaxing” or “doing nothing”. Someone who is at home and “just chillin” it means they are probably surfing the internet or watching TV. They are just doing some simple activity and nothing serious.
Friends often say they are “chillin” when they are together.
An example sentence is, “I had a few friends over last night and we pretty much just chilled”.

Here is a real native conversation:

Ted: Do you have any plans tonight?
Tom: I dont’ know. I’m not really in the mood to go out tonight. I’m just chillin at home right now. You can come over here if you want.

Hanging Out

This is one of the most common slang phrases in spoken English. You absolutely need to know how to use this one.
Sometimes we pronounce this as “Hangin out
If you are “hanging out” it means that you are spending time relaxing either by yourself or with friends. Native speakers never say “playing with my friends” instead we say “hanging out with my friends”.

Here is a real conversation:

Gary: What did you do last night?
Sarah: Not much. I just hung out with a couple of friends from work.

Drama Queen

A “Drama Queen” is a really useful slang term. It will definitely impress native speakers if you use it correctly.
If someone is trying to get attention by overreacting or by acting childish, they are called a “Drama Queen” . It’s not good to be a Drama Queen and everyone hates them. Drama queens can be both men and women.

Here is a real native conversation:

Bob: Did you notice how upset Cherry was at dinner yesterday? She was crying in front of everyone the whole night. Do you know what happened to her?
Kevin: Ya. Nothing really. She just had a bad day at work and was being a drama queen. It was so annoying to be around. I’m not going to invite her to any more dinner parties.

Sleep on it

If you need to make an important decision in your life, someone might suggest that you “sleep on it”.
If you “sleep on it” it means that you wait a little while to make your decision.  You actually go to sleep and make your decision in the morning.  Sometimes this helps make a better decision because it’s less emotional.

Here is a real native conversation:

Carrie: I got into a huge fight with my husband today.  I’m getting so sick of his attitude.  I going to tell him I want a divorce.
Heather: Sweetie.  You’ve been married for over 10 years.  It’s normal to argue.  Maybe you should sleep on it and see how you feel in the morning.  Divorce is a really big decision.
Carrie: Ok.  Good idea


A “slut” is a really mean term that is only used for girls.  A “slut” is a girl who has sex with a lot of different guys.  She is really easy to sleep with.  It’s a bad word.  This word can not be used for guys who do the same thing.  It’s not fair, but it’s the way it is.

Here are some real example sentences:

She is such a slut.  She slept with all 3 of my best friends.
I don’t think she’s a slut.  She is just having fun while she’s single.
If you want my honest opinion, I don’t think you should wear that dress.  It looks a bit sl


These two slang words are used all the time in spoken English and basically mean the same thing.
If something “blows” or “sucks” it means it is really bad.

Here are some real native examples:

This party really blows. Let’s think of an excuse and leave as soon as possible.
I really don’t want to watch that movie. I’ve heard from at least 5 different people that it totally sucks.
He seriously thinks he’s a good basketball player. I went to watch his game last night and he totallyblows.
I love playing tennis but I really suck at it.

right decision on right time can give u success....................?

success means all world and you are not alone in this world.

PEOPLE CAN CRITICIZE YOU on your work because they like you or love you .don't take a decision to avoid, ignore or to remove them from your work.
that may be a worst decision. because if you remove them it would be your unsuccessful story not successful story. critics must be welcome and they give a challenge e to climb on the peak of mountain.

we must take your own decision but consult with your buddies as i every time do. i take a long time to discussion to reach at the right decision 
 i always take my own decision because i love to make my own decision. what happened in past i forget but i right for experience. you these lines...........................

You can't build a strong corporation with a lot of

 committees and a Board that has to be 

consulted every turn. You have to be able to 

make decisions on your own."
Rupert Murdoch

yes thats right and people should consult with
 others but sometime our juniors are more important to give right decision so always welcome your juniors to speak

"Most discussions of decision making assume 

that only senior executives make decisions or 

that only senior executives decisions matter. 

This is a dangerous mistake."
Peter Drucker


I just read  a line in a book "you can never make up for the lost". i thought what its meaning. kept thinking over night .in the morning i reached to a decision. you know in your life a second is valuable but. your decision is more important then other things.

life is like hell if people dont understand your my life i saw some people who were very successful in their projects because they never took decision separately. they came and met to the guys and discussed about the problems. and became successful because they have discussed.

i never take my own decision because it may be very risky. i know taking Risk is important in and that gives a good experience in our life but. taking decision on right time is more important then anything
do u know about these
Once the "what" is decided, the "how" always follows. We must not make the "how" an excuse for not facing and accepting the "what."

Sir, What is the secret of your success?" a reporter asked a bank president.

"Two words."

"And, sir, what are they?"

"Good decisions."
"And how do you make good decisions?"

"One word."

"And sir, what is that?"


"And how do you get Experience?"

"Two words."

"And, sir, what are they?"

"Bad decisions."
