When critically acclaimed director Mani Shankar signed Kangana Ranaut to essay the role of a passionate broadcast journalist along with Sanjay Dutt and Irfaan Khan, there was (and still is) a whole lot of criticism from the cynics and her detractors. Many laughed at the thought of Kangana playing a role similar to the Padma Shri winner and bold NDTV journalist Barkha Dutt. None questioned her acting capabilities as Kangana has time and again proved herself to be an excellent and a versatile actress. But they all questioned Mani Shankar's wisdom in choosing Kangana to play the role of a TV journalist, because of the prominent lisp in her speech.
However it seems that Kangana is all out to prove her critics and detractors wrong as she is putting in a whole lot of hard work to make her character appear realistic. And the proof of that came during a press conference, where journalists who tried to ask Kangana questions were surprised to find her cross questioning them in a very convincing manner. When the poor journos did not understand what hit them, Kangana explained that she was doing this as a sort of practice for her role of a broadcast journalist and she wants to get her expressions, dialect and speech right and what better way to learn than from the journalists themselves. She also revealed that she was in contact with many of her journalist friends so that she could get her dialogue delivery right, as the most important factor in the role of a broadcast journalist is clear and convincing speech.
Well, Kangana we are sure that your efforts will be well rewarded.
