It's Valentine's Day today folks and who better than Bollywood's 'Queen' Kangana Ranaut to talk about matters of the heart. The actress may have had a tumultuous 2016 when it come to her personal life but that hasn't deterred her from speaking straight from the heart.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Kangana spoke at length about love, Valentine's Day and more. Here's what she had to say-
Love Is Hard To Define
When asked about her definition of love, Kangana said, "Love is hard to define. It's not like you can't do it, but you won't be able to do justice to the feeling. The most amazing and purest form of love is a mother's, which we experience from the moment we are born. Our first encounter in life is with love. My idea of love is not very different from that. The purpose can change, the nature of it changes, but the essence remains the same. "
When I Was Younger, Valentine's Day Meant A Lot More
Talking about her idea of Valentine's Day in today's times, she quipped, "When I was younger, it meant a lot more. Now I don't think it holds as much significance; you don't wait for a Valentine to propose to you. In our age group, it unfolds differently."
I Have Been In An Equation Where I Saw The Person Was Doing A lot For Me And I Felt Obliged To Respond To That Desire From His End, And I Misunderstood It For Love
The actress further added, "I have been in an equation where I saw the person was doing a lot for me and I felt obliged to respond to that desire from his end, and I misunderstood it for love. Yes, I have been in a situation where someone is addressing your insecurities and convincing you that you are the best. In that sense, he was basically telling me whatever I wanted to hear at that point. Or helping me financially as a friend or in whatever capacity. I responded thinking that was the best thing to do as it seemed like love. But no, that surely wasn't love.
Love has to be instinctive, like the love that Julia experiences with Nawab (Shahid Kapoor) in the film. It's not because she is getting something out of it, or he is fulfilling some purpose. They just flow, and that kind of love brings out the best in human beings. Such love also makes us the best version of ourselves."
I Have A Record Of Never Going Back To My Exes
Talking about heartaches, Kangana quipped, "Well, I am very blessed. I tend to get over it really quickly! When I am in a relationship, I am really into it, but when it's over, I never look back. I have a record of never going back to my exes, never meeting them again. All my exes want to get back with me, that's also a record I hold (laughs). I take one week to get over a relationship even if it may have lasted for seven years. I truly believe there is a lot to life. The reason I get over a relationship so easily is because when I am in it, I give it my all and if it doesn't work out, I know there is nothing I can do about it. So, I never have the impulse to go back because I live with the satisfaction that I have done my best. That part of me is completely sorted.
On the work front, the fiesty actress will be next seen in Rangoon alongside Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan.
