Kangana Ranaut dons director’s hat
Kangana Ranaut has decided to go behind the camera and explore the other side of film making. Though she is a making a short film with an Australian writer currently, she may direct some B town flicks in near future.
Her movie is shot in Los Angeles with entire cast and crew of America. The film is about a four year old boy and a dog. Kangana Ranaut says that she donned the director’s hat “after meeting Hollywood biggies during one of my recent trips to Los Angeles. And things just fell into place.”
She tried hard to justify her new role. She says, “It took six months of thorough groundwork. I was advised not to work with kids and animals, but my script demanded it. Kaden (the boy) is very little. We had to place hidden cameras, play games, and pretend to be aliens and trees in order to get him in the frame)! But it was fun, he is adorable.”
Adding further she says, “The dog was well-trained and not difficult to work with either. We intend to send the film for international festivals, but as of now, I am concentrating on finishing the editing and visual effects. That’s the only thing on my mind before I leave for Paris for my next acting schedule.”
She has now been obsessed with her directorial venture. “I love both apples and oranges in a unique way…. But working with an international cast and crew was an amazing experience,” she says.
She didn’t forget to thank her director friends back in India who gave her support when she needed them most. They even encouraged her to make her short film.
In addition to direction, she is also busy acting in Aanand L. Rai’s “Tanu Weds Manu Season 2,” Rakesh Roshan’s “Krrish 3”, Karan Johar’s “Unglee,” and Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala.
