I was a Lok Sabha member then, and I remember it was like an event here (Parliament). The gallery was full and when she finished speaking, everyone was praising her articulation, content and language. It made news that day,” he’d said.
Kangana has gained 20 kgs for this role.
In a tweet, Kangana said: “She was a very reluctant actor. It is the same with me. I never wanted to be an actor, and that is why we became very unusual actors.”
“I think she always felt that she was worth much more than just being a glam doll [in films], and she became a politician. Like how I became a filmmaker because I felt that being an actress was very limiting for me. So, I think there are parallels,” she added.
