Brave New Girl

Friday, May 06, 2016

The trolls have been extra active in attacking Kangana Ranaut, because they have not seen too many outspoken actresses. Even the ones who claim to be bold, their attitude is mostly confined to their outfits, and maybe a coy acknowledgement of their relationships. The whole world may know of their romances, but the official confirmation comes when they either break-up or get married.

The mysterious and sordid legal battle between her and Hrithik Roshan has given people enough ammunition to lampoon her, but two things come in the eay—1) she doesn’t care; 2) she is successful.

She believes it is the success of a rank outsider, who struggled her way up the Bollywood ladder and made it big, is what is causing this strange hate campaign.  It is her success that is making duds like Adhyayan Suman and even the Pancholi couple Aditya (a former lover) and his wife Zarina to come out and get their share of the spotlight that is shining down on Kangana.

The really strange thing is, that till a few years back, if an actress lived her life so uninhibitedly, she would not last too long. But today, Kangana has as many admirers as she has detractors. The industry may not value talent so much, but it worships success, so as of now, as she returns after collecting her third national award, she still finds herself a part of the industry. Other actresses who tried to hit out at the male order in Bollywood soon found themselves isolated.

In her NDTV interview that has gone viral, she had said things like:
I am proud of my fragile body and sharp mind.

If a woman is super successful, she is called a psychopath.

My success is my sweet revenge against controversy.

I am a self-pleaser, not a people-pleaser.

We as women have been defending ourselves way too long.

I don't find it humiliating when they call me a psychopath, witch or whore.

I don't know how to be anybody else than who I am.
For a small town girl without a great education, she is remarkably articulate. Mallika Sherawat was too sharp and witty, the difference being that she never managed to become a 100-crore heroine.  After some time, her lies were exposed and her pretensions laughed at. But both of them have courage, impudence and the drive to succeed. Kangana’s talent helped her climb to the top, Mallika remained a sex symbol, item girl, and taker of selfies with foreign VIPs.
