Kangna Amardeep Ranaut, pronounced, born on 23 March 1987, is an accomplished Indian actress and filmmaker predominantly active in Hindi cinema. Renowned for her compelling portrayals of strong-willed and unconventional women in female-centric films, she has garnered numerous accolades, including four National Film Awards and five Filmfare Awards. Kangna has consistently featured in Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 list, securing a place six times. In 2020, she was conferred with the prestigious Padma Shri by the Government of India, marking her contributions to the film industry.

Kangna’s journey in the entertainment industry began at the age of sixteen when she briefly pursued a career in modeling. Subsequently, she underwent training under the guidance of theatre director Arvind Gaur. Her cinematic debut transpired in the 2006 thriller Gangster, earning her the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. She gained acclaim for her emotionally charged performances in films such as Woh Lamhe… (2006), Life in a… Metro (2007), and Fashion (2008), the latter of which earned her the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress. While achieving commercial success with movies like Raaz: The Mystery Continues (2009) and Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai (2010), she faced criticism for being typecast in neurotic roles. Despite this, her comedic role in Tanu Weds Manu (2011) was well-received. However, subsequent roles in brief and glamorous parts did not propel her career forward as expected.

Controversies• During her initial days in Bollywood, she was in a relationship with Aditya Pancholi, who was around 20 years older than her and already married. However, things got complicated when she accused Aditya of violence and broke up with him.

• After her break up with Adhyayan Suman, he said, “I was emotionally badgered because of my relationship. Kangna only knows how to use, abuse and throw. She has flooded me with abusive calls ever since the truth about her fake claims came out. I have remained silent on her abusive nature for so many years, but she is crossing all limits now. Since I haven’t been taking her calls, her aides have been calling my mother and harassing her.”

Kangana Ranaut Kangana Ranaut Actress Early life and background 

Kangna Amardeep Ranaut, born on 23 March 1987 in Bhambla (now Surajpur), a small town in the Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh, comes from a Rajput family.[4][3][5][6] Her mother, Asha Ranaut, serves as a school teacher, while her father, Amardeep Ranaut, is a businessman. Within her family, she has an elder sister, Rangoli Chandel, who, as of 2014, works as her manager, and a younger brother, Akshat. Kangna’s lineage includes her great-grandfather, Sarju Singh Ranaut, a former Member of the Legislative Assembly, and her grandfather, an IAS officer. Her upbringing took place in a joint family setting at their ancestral haveli (mansion) in Bhambla, which she fondly described as a “simple and happy” childhood.

During her formative years, Kangna Ranaut displayed a “stubborn and rebellious” nature, challenging gender stereotypes and societal expectations. She vividly recalled instances where she resisted traditional gender-based gifts and experimented with fashion, often creating combinations that appeared “bizarre” to her neighbors. Kangna received her education at the DAV School in Chandigarh, focusing on science as her major subject. Describing herself as “very studious” and “always paranoid about results,” she initially aspired to become a doctor, following her parents’ wishes. However, a setback in the form of a failed unit test in chemistry during twelfth grade prompted her to reassess her career path. Despite preparing for the All India Pre Medical Test, Kangna did not appear for the exam, deciding to seek her “space and freedom” by relocating to Delhi at the age of sixteen. Her choice not to pursue medicine led to ongoing conflicts with her parents, particularly her father, who refused to support what he deemed an aimless pursuit.
