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 Dhamaal, No Problem, and Tanu Weds Manu. She is also doing Rascals, Game 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!"
