Kangana Ranaut Was Offered A Ticket After Gangster Films Are Easier Than Politics
Actor-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut feels working in films is easier than her new job. The 37-year-old, who won the Mandi seat in her homestate, is taking her latest role seriously. She however recalls how she was first offered to enter politics right after her Bollywood debut, Gangster in 2006.
In a conversation with The Himachal Podcast, Kangana said, "This is not the first time I was approached to join politics, I have received several other offers in the past. Soon after Gangster, I was offered a ticket."
"I was also approached in 2019. If I wasn’t interested in this, I didn’t really have to go through so much trouble. I am not looking at it as just a break. It’s a very difficult place to be in and I am prepared. I think if God has blessed me with this opportunity, then I will surely do it with all my honesty. More than me, the people of Mandi want to have someone who will save them from corrupt people. And for that, they have chosen me. I don’t want to let them down," she added.

Kangana also got candid about how politics runs in her family, as her great-grandfather has been an MLA for three terms. Stating that even her sister Rangoli received an offer after surviving the acid attack, she added, "When you belong to such a family, and taste some success, the local leaders approach you... So for us, it is not a big deal for us to get political offers."
Kangana asserted that as a politician, she'll always be ready to engage with people. "However, I won’t deny that the work in the film industry is comparatively easier than in politics. The latter takes a lot of effort. It is a harsh life, just like doctors, where only troubled people come to see you. When you go to watch a film, you are very relaxed. But, politics isn’t like it."
Now that she has a bigger job at hand, does she plan to quit movies all together, something that many felt she's been hinting at, for sometime now? In her reply, Kangana said, "Every human being in their life always wants to do a little more, and when you notice, you see, you are stuck in a cycle. You will notice, you are in a cycle of hit film, flop film, and then you will feel like I am not more. And then something happens and your belief breaks. You look around. You see whoever has invented something in their life, it was never because they wanted to, it was always because it was needed."
Kangana Ranaut won the Mandi Lok Sabha seat as a BJP candidate by a margin of 74,755 votes as against Congress leader Vikramaditya Singh. Soon after he slapgate incident by a CISF officer at the Chandigarh airport kept her in headlines for several days.
