Kangana Ranaut, who plays a dumped girl in the upcoming film Queen, says she couldn’t identify herself with the character because in real life, she is very strong and has high self esteem.
“I’d say this girl is very different from me. Queen is someone who was very hard to identify with, since she has low self-esteem and is not strong at all. It takes me three days to get over a break-up. People find it difficult, but I am a very strong person. I’ve been on my own without my parents since the age of 15. I’ve literally lived on my own as a kid. Queen, on the contrary, has self-acceptance issues. What I learnt from my character is to be sensitive to these people. Like I was very harsh earlier and would go, ‘Why would you make someone responsible for your own happiness?’ I thought of them as losers. Being this person has changed my perspective,” says Kangana.
Queen, directed by Vikas Bahl, is set for a release on March 7th. After this, Kangana will be seen in another film Revolver Rani. Vir Das, who is co-starring with her in the film, will play the role of her toy boy.
Vir confirmed the news saying, “Yes, it’s true, you’ll be seeing me as a toy boy of sorts. I play a complete degenerate who is perhaps the most selfish character you’ll ever see on screen. He’s ambitious, manipulative and stops at nothing to get what he wants, even if it means using women.”
