During The Himachal Podcast, Kangana Ranaut said, “I am somebody who follows her passion. If you look at me in the film industry, I am an actor, writer, director and producer. And here in my political career, if I have to engage myself with the people here, I will go ahead with it. However, I won’t deny that the work in the film industry is comparatively easier than in politics. The latter takes a lot of effort. It is a harsh life, just like doctors, where only troubled people come to see you. When you go to watch a film, you are very relaxed. But politics isn’t like it.”

Kangana Ranaut reveals about her political background

She went on to open up about her political background and also added how her family members have been approached to pursue it in the past. “My great-grandfather was an MLA for at least three terms. So, when you belong to such a family, and taste some success, the local leaders approach you. It is very common. In fact, my father had received an offer. My sister was offered to join politics after she survived the acid attack. So, for us, it is not a big deal for us to get political offers,” she shared.

Ranaut was offered to join politics right after her debut and later in 2019 as well.

Talking about how many of them came to her with an offer to join politics in the past, Kangana added, “This is not the first time I was approached to join politics. I have received several other offers in the past. Soon after Gangster, I was offered a ticket.” She continued, “I was also approached in 2019. If I wasn’t interested in this, I didn’t really have to go through so much trouble. I am not looking at it as just a break. It’s a very difficult place to be in and I am prepared. I think if God has blessed me with this opportunity, then I will surely do it with all my honesty. More than me, the people of Mandi want to have someone who will save them from corrupt people. And for that, they have chosen me. I don’t want to let them down.”

About her acting projects

Kangana Ranaut, who was last seen in Tejas, is gearing up for the release of her directorial Emergency, which interestingly, is a political drama.
