National award winner Kangana Ranaut who essays the role of a kothewalli in Vishwas Patil’s Rajjo will be seen sporting tobacco stains on her teeth in several portions of the film – Known to get under the skin of her characters, Kangana who plays the protagonist in the film, went out of her way not just to train in classical dance for her role ,but even ensured she looked the part –
Given that the actress is against tobacco, she chose to substitute it and chew on paan and food color instead , making it a win-win situation.
Says a source, “Though Kangana had her initial reservations ,she decided to go all out and look the part of a kothewalli and even sported tobacco stains on her pearly whites -She suggested chewing on paan and food color instead of tobacco since the addictive is banned in the state and being extremely health conscious thought of an alternative. Her dedication and her need to achieve perfection in every single scene had everyone floored”.
Says Kangana, “As an actor , I will do whatever the script requires me to, if it helps in making the character seem more believable “.
