When I came in this in­dus­try, I was trapped. I was dy­ing in all my films. And com­ing out of it was not easy. I have worked re­ally hard to make a mark Kan­gana Ra­naut, ac­tor

Ac­tor Kan­gana Ra­naut (right) has emerged as a force to reckon with in Bol­ly­wood. The Na­tional Award-win­ning ac­tor, who has scored a hit with her dual avatar in Tanu Weds Manu Re­turns this year and im­pressed the au­di­ence with Queen last year, says she isn’t scared of any­thing at this point in her ca­reer.

“I think where I am right now, I am not scared of any­thing. I had noth­ing when I came in this in­dus­try and now I have im­mense con­fi­dence. I am not an­swer­able to any­one, and I live my life on my own terms,” says the 28-year-old ac­tor. In fact, she doesn’t feel the need to do the con­ven­tional things or to fit in.

How­ever, there were times when she felt trapped, in her ear­lier days. The ac­tor, who made her film de­but with Gang­ster (2006), and went on to fea­ture in films such as Woh Lamhe (2006), Life in a... Metro (2007) and Fash­ion (2008), says it was dif­fi­cult for her to break free from the sim­i­lar roles that she was get­ting. “When I came in this in­dus­try, I was trapped. I was dy­ing in all my films. And com­ing out of it was not easy. I think it was my des­tiny and I have worked hard to make a mark in this in­dus­try,” says the 28-year-old.
