Was offered Padmaavat, says Kangana Ranaut

When it comes to candid conversations and being honest admissions, there is no one like Kangana Ranaut. Not only is she one of the most talented and versatile actors in the industry, but she is also someone who does not believe in mincing her words. She recently did a show with a leading publication where she once again spoke about her journey and her choice of cinema.

During the chat, there was a mention of how filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s two big movies — Black (2005) and Devdas (2002) made a huge impact on her. When the actress was asked if she has met Bhansali in recent times, she revealed that they did and guess what, it was for his magnum opus Padmaavat.

“Oh, yes. In fact, we had a brief meeting for Padmaavat (2018). He narrated me the script,” says Kangana.

On being categorically asked if he had offered her the film, she said, “Yes. There was this conversation, and I was doing Manikarnika then, so it didn’t go anywhere. But we had a brief narration. Before that as well, he wanted me to do the Ram-Leela song. He is a filmmaker who can leave strong impressions on you especially if you are a fresh mind.”

Kangana Ranaut will be seen next in Ekta Kapoor’s Mental Hai Kya and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga. She will also start working on the biopic of Jayalalithaa later this year.
