After tasting success with Gangster, Fashion, Once Upon A Time In Mumbai, Raaz 2 and Tanu Weds Manu, the 26-year-old also went through her share of flops in Tezz, Miley Na Miley Hum, Knock Out, No Problem and Rascals among others. But this year looks promising to her as she has an interesting range of movies lined up for release.
"I have been very lucky to have worked with some of the biggest names and been part of some interesting projects. My journey has been a roller coaster, but it has all been worth it," Kangna told PTI in an interview here.
Ask her how she deals with success and failure, she says, "I don't let the two of them get to my head." In Shootout at Wadala, Kangna played the love interest of gangster Manya Surve, essayed by John Abraham. "I am glad that the film has done well. And ironically in films where I have played a gangster's moll have been successes. But I don't read too much into it. I'm an actor and at the end of the day delivering a good solid performance is my priority," she said.
The actress is gearing up to play a nautch girl in her next film Rajjo, to be directed by newcomer Vishwas Patil. The film will trace the journey of a nautch girl who goes on to become a classical dancer. "There was a lot of research that went into my role for Rajjo. I have visited 'kothas' and met with women working there to understand their body language and mindset," she said.
