Kangana Ranaut is one of the most talked-about actresses in Bollywood. She is an outsider, who has achieved superstardom with her calibre and stellar acting performances. From swearing by to not attending any award shows to not endorsing fairness products, Kangana never minces her words and stands out strong. In her acting career spanning over a decade, the actress had time and again stood up for women’s rights through female-centric movies. Now, Kangana has shared a personal anecdote from her trip to Europe and how she was robbed there and had felt helpless.
For those who don’t know, Kangana Ranaut has been graced by the National Film Award four times. Earlier, she had won the Best Supporting Actor award for her film, Fashion (2010), Queen (2015), and Tanu Weds Manu (2016). And in 2021, she had won her fourth Rajat Kamal for her performances in the films Manikarnika and Pangaa at the 67th National Film Awards Ceremony.
In a recent chat with Curly Tales, Kangana Ranaut recalled a horrible moment from her trip to a European nation. Talking about the same, the Dhakkad actress narrated how a guy had cunningly bumped into her only to steal her expensive Louis Vuitton bag, cards, local money and a few thousand dollars. In her words:
“I went for skiing, at a resort town between the Italy-Switzerland border. There was a school there, and kids were living in it secretly. I decided to take a train and get out of there. At the station, a guy bumped into me. I had a Louis Vuitton pouch and a backpack. The guy was so sharp; he came and stole my money, a few thousand dollars, local money, cards.”
Further in the conversation, Kangana Ranaut revealed the poor hospitality that she had received from the locals. Kangana shared that the whole day she was thirsty as nobody had even offered her a glass of water in that European nation. She further added that in India, even a samosa seller would offer water, unlike in other foreign countries. Kangana can be quoted as saying:
“When I got in the train, I noticed that he’d emptied my pouch… in a fraction of a second. Luckily, my passport was with me. I was in a different place, and I got stranded there. So, I called my sister. And she put me through to the manager. The whole day I was thirsty. I was so turned off by this, because in our country, even a samosa seller will offer you water. This is the bad side of Europe.”
Earlier, in an episode of the reality show, Lock Upp, Kangana had opened up about facing sexual assault in her childhood on national television. In the episode, she had recalled her experience of facing inappropriate touch when she did not even know what it had meant. The actress had mentioned:
"So many kids go through this every year but we avoid talking about it on public platforms. All of us go through this, all of us have been inappropriately touched at some point. I have faced this. I was a child and a young boy from our town used to inappropriately touch me. At the time, I did not know what it meant, no matter how protective your family is, all kids go through this."
On the work front, Kangana Ranaut will be next seen in the upcoming film, Dhakkad opposite Arjun Rampal.
