Kangana Ranaut is known to make headlines for her movies, fashion trends and even her statements. The latest buzz around the actress has been about her recent statement praising Prime Minister, Narendra Modi which led to rumours about her interest in joining politics. When confronted about it, she said,

I am currently in the midst of Manikarnika, Mental Hai Kya and we’ve just announced Panga. Whenever I decide to take up the path, I will do so with utmost sophistication, dignity and full focus. I’m not a sissy to say politics is too demanding; I have to be extremely selfish to say it isn’t my cup of tea.

She further added:

If I have to be a national servant, I can’t have a family or kids, or an alternate career. A politician should be nothing more than a government servant. I can’t be an actor with an interest in movies, and at the same time, pursue a future in politics. I don’t want any conflict to arise over my service to the nation, not even my family’s expectations of me. I have set high standards for myself.

The actress also said that serving the nation is her dream.

On the work front, she has been busy shooting for Manikarnika and Mental Hai Kya? The former was set to hit the theatres earlier this month but has been postponed to January next year.
