Actor Meryl Streep may have been nominated for a record 21 Academy Awards and won thrice but Kangana Ranaut believes that she has “raw talent like Meryl Streep” and can also “do skilled action and glamour like Gal Gadot”. The actress said so in a tweet in which she attached two pictures – one of her in Thalaivi and another of her in Dhaakad.
“Massive transformation alert, The kind of range I display as a performer no other actress on this globe has that right now, I have raw talent like Meryl Streep for layered character depictions but I can also do skilled action and glamour like Gal Gadot,” Kangana Ranaut tweeted.
Ranaut is the winner of three National Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards. She has also been honoured with India’s fourth-highest civilian award, the Padma Shri. Her roles in films like Woh Lamhe, Fashion, Queen and Tanu Weds Manu have been critically acclaimed.
She didn’t stop there. Despite facing major flak from netizens on Twitter, the actress went on to compare herself to action star Tom Cruise who will be flying to space for his next film.
“Ha ha ha bahut pareshaan hain librus, (liberals are disturbed) yeh Dekho renowned action director of Brave heart and many legendary Hollywood action films said I am better than Tom Cruise when it comes to action … Hahahahaha bechare librus aur tadpo. (suffer in pain, liberals),” she wrote.
Now, the actress has shared a new list of achievements.
“Left home at the age of 15 my father refused to help me in my struggle, was on my own, was captured by underworld mafia at 16, At 21 I had squashed all villains in my life, was a successful actress a national award winner owner of my first house in Mumbai city posh location Bandra,” she further tweeted.
When the actress faced flak for comparing herself to Meryl Streep, she fought back and tweeted: “Anyone who is asking how many Oscars I have can also ask how many National or Padma awards Meryl Streep has, the answer is none, come out of your slave mentality. High time you all find some self-respect and self-worth.”
