Recipient of four national awards, Kangana Ranaut is not just a brilliant performer but also a prolific filmmaker. As the actor gears up for the release of her upcoming film ‘Thalaivi’, Kangana Ranaut got emotional as she opened up about her bond with director A L Vijay and spoke about how he empowered her.
Venturing into the South Indian entertainment industry with ‘Thalaivi’, Kangana felt extremely welcomed and valued, having treated with immense respect for her craft, the actor poured her heart expressing her gratitude towards the director for accepting her wholeheartedly.
The Padma Shri recipient said, “Never in my life have I met a man who has not made me feel apologetic about my talent. I’m getting emotional, I’m not usually like that, but I want to say that he is one person, who has made me feel good about my talent. Usually the camaraderie they show with male hero, is never shown with an actress. But as a Director, I learnt from him how to treat actors and how to show creative partnership.”
Earlier, Kangana Ranaut took to social media penning a heartfelt note for her director praising him at the wrap of the film. ‘Thalaivi’ marks Kangana Ranaut’s first trilingual, releasing in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu simultaneously.
