The actress has made controversial remarks against the film industry.
Kangana Ranaut: Don't have an iota of respect for the industry, ready to leave it

After her bold comments on the television show, Aap Ki Adalat against Hrithik Roshan, it was clear that Kangana Ranaut is in no mood to back down. But now, the actress has lashed out at the entire industry for not speaking up on important issues. In fact, she also went onto say that she doesn’t have "an iota of respect" for the industry.
During an interview with Bombay Times, she said, “Being actors, if it is about our gender, about religion, about the debate of India’s struggles, the army fighting at the border why, for all this, do you show your back and why do you crawl into your little holes, why, if you can’t speak? Beyond being an actor, beyond being a professional, you are a citizen of the nation, first and foremost. How dare this industry forget that? Their lives are very limited.”
She said that she was also ready to leave the industry, if needed. “And that’s why, like I said, I am more than happy to let go of this industry. And why? Because I don’t have an iota of respect for it. And they (other actors) can tell. And that’s why they don’t like me. And my genuine reason for not liking this industry is very personal,” she added.
Ranaut also said that she was not worried about not getting work because of her comments. “I am an actor, I’ll get a job regardless. So anyone who thinks that a profession is above one’s character and dignity is just an idiot who doesn’t know how to live life. Life is not about tricks and techniques. Life is about finding yourself, and finding peace with that,” she said.
She also described her own definition of success. “Life is about finding yourself, and finding peace with that. The thing is, see, what is the definition of success? I want to ask a successful person. If you are crawled in your little hell hole, and you do not have a voice, you’re shit scared of losing whatever little you have earned in life, you are the most unsuccessful person in life,” added Ranaut.
Her next film Simran is all set to be released tomorrow, 15 September.
