Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Kan­gana Ra­naut (far right), known for her power-packed per­for­mances in films like Queen (2014) and Tanu Weds Manu se­ries, says she has been of­fered to play an 85-year-old woman in a movie to be di­rected by film­maker Shekhar

Ka­pur (right). “I have been of­fered (to play) an 85-year-old woman. She is a mother. We are still in talks... The role is very chal­leng­ing for me,” says Kan­gana.

How­ever, Kan­gana does not con­firm if the role is in Ka­pur’s most am­bi­tious project Paani or some other undis­closed film.

“There is pres­sure from the film industry and the so­ci­ety that an ac­tress should look a cer­tain age. We as women should ac­cept our­selves the way we are. We ac­tresses should stand for our­selves,” she says.
