When almost all B-town actresses eagerly look forward to work with Salman Khan, actress Kangana Ranaut has left mouths wide open by refusing to romance the superstar in the upcoming film ‘Sultan’. this is not the first time that Kangana has turned down a film opposite Salman. Earlier, the actress had opted out of Salman starrer ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ also.
Sultan won’t be the first time Kangana Ranaut has been unable to do a Salman Khan film. The first one offered to her was Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which eventually fell into Kareena Kapoor’s lap. She was also approached to be the female lead in Sultan, for which they haven’t found a replacement yet.
“Aditya Chopra had personally spoken to Kangana about the role. Unlike other Salman films, the role of the heroine in Sultan is a lot meatier. Adi felt she would fit the bill perfectly and the character is rather heroic,” an insider reveals. Like Salman, the female lead in Sultan is also a wrestler. So, she won’t be a showpiece. It’s a challenging part.
While BB didn’t interest her role-wise, Kangs had to turn down Sultan because of Vishal Bhardwaj’s Rangoon. “Yes, Sultan’s dates are clashing with Rangoon and I am already committed to Rangoon,” Kangana admits.
The starlet is currently busy with the shooting of her next release Katti Batti opposite Imran Khan. She is constantly riding success after super hit movies like Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns. Now the artist joined other prominent leading actress in their big league. Her effort and dedication brought her the accolades which she deserves and makes her one of the youngest recipient of the national award.
