Kangana Ranaut critiques Bollywood as ‘superficial’ and ‘lustrous’

When asked if her political success in the Mandi electoral district would lead her to abandon Bollywood, her response was affirmative. Kangana elaborated further, “The entire film scene is constructed on illusions; it lacks authenticity. Industry insiders craft a highly polished, illusionary facade to captivate viewers. This is the harsh truth. I’m someone driven by my passions. I’ve never been one to conform to a role that doesn’t resonate with me. In my film career, I would venture into writing, directing, or producing when acting no longer stimulated me; my mind thrives on being actively engaged.”
