A National Award in her kitty and a four-year career where she has so far been mostly applauded for her powerhouse performances makes Kangna Ranaut one of the most enviable names. Kangna is anything but complacent. She will be seen next in ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI in yet-another author-backed role. The actress spoke to our Correspondent on her role, playing Madhubala and her personal life and more.

KITES didn't fare well and your role and too was cut down to 10 minutes.
It was a good film but there wasn't much I could have done here. I am disappointed that it didn't fetch the desired results. Moreover, I knew that my role was that of a special appearance. It wasn't a big role at all but again I was surprised to find my role almost cut down to nothing. Again, it was completely producer Rakesh Roshan and Anurag's (Basu) decision because they were the ones who made the film.

Didn't that disappoint you?
See, Anurag is a great friend of mine. He gave me my first film, GANGSTER, and

'I haven't even given 10 per cent to Bollywood yet...'

it was a huge success. I did KITES because Anurag wanted me to do it and he was clear from the very beginning that my role is going to be a short one. Keeping that in mind, I don't have any reasons to be upset.

In fact you have a National Award for FASHION to your credit now. That must have been a really encouragement.
Yes, I am really excited and happy after winning the National Award but I still think I have a long way to go.

But you have been tremendously successful in a short career.
(Laughs) I don't see it that way. I feel lucky that I have done some good films, which makes me happy. At the same time I think I haven't even given 10 per cent to Bollywood yet. I am hungry for good roles.

ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAAI is another big film up for release and you are opposite Ajay Devgn, who is playing the iconic Haji Mastan.
It is a dream role. It's something that I haven't played earlier. Haji Mastan was a big fan of Madhubala but there was no way he could marry her. So he ended up marrying a smalltime actress who looked a lot like Madhubala. My character is modeled on both of them.
