Kangana Ranaut's sister got 54 surgeries post-acid attack; the reason why she did tacky films
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut once talked about her sister's Rangoli Chandel acid attack struggle and more
Kangana Ranaut's other name is has become synonymous with controversies, from her Hrithik Roshan's alleged affair to picking up fight with Bollywood's biggies like Karan Johar, Salman Khan to speak her voice against Maharashtra current government.
Since last year, Kangana is very vocal about every topic which is going in the country. She is one of the actors who don't have a filmy background and made it big in the film industry.
During a promotional event of her film Panga, Kangana revealed that she might have lost out on her family if she hadn't made it into the film industry. Kangana had left home (Mandi) at the tender age of 15 to be an independent woman.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Kangana talked about her struggle during her initial days in Bollywood, "Today, fortunately for me, I've got my family back. But I know that somewhere, success had a huge role to play in the reconciliation. Had I not made it in films, I might have lost out on both my family and my dream, and that would have been devastating."
When Kangana was 19 years old, her sister Rangoli Chandel was attacked with acid by her college friend Avinash Sharma after Rangoli had refused his proposal.
At that time, Kangana was not financially strong to support her sister's treatment post-acid-attack. To which Kangana said she had to do tacky films to gather money for the treatment.
"I was just 19, on the threshold of a bright career, when the attack happened and it was a long, hard struggle to deal with this kind of perverse, sexist cruelty. Financially too, I was not strong back then. Girls around me would feel depressed by a bad hair day or because a meal was not to their liking. I was grappling with something far more real and yet had no time to sit and cry. I did tacky films, took on roles I did not deserve, and accepted guest appearances, so my sister could be treated by India's best surgeon. It took 54 surgeries," Kangana revealed.
Kangana will also be seen in spy-thriller Dhaakad in which she plays the role of a spy, also in Tejas, where she plays an Indian Air Force pilot. She is also gearing up for the release of Thalaivi. The film is all set to release in theatres on April 23.
