Men don’t want to have sex with intimidating women, says Kangana


Kangana Ranaut is a bold actress with straight-forward attitude and is known for speaking her mind, no matter what. She has once again fearlessly taken on the Indian patriarchy saying how men find it intimidating to be with a woman who speaks her mind.    

Kangana, who will be soon seen romancing Shahid Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan in ‘Rangoon’ said that men like submissive, timid woman. “Intimidating women aren't worth having sex with. Bold, stubborn women, who are achievers, are desirable only to those who are strong and assured. [For some men] it's frightening to handle a woman who can speak her mind. Thankfully, that's not true of everyone. Courage is often endearing and rare," the actress said during a candid chat with Mid-day.

She also took a veiled dig at the likes of Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone who have headed to the West, saying that she doesn’t harbour Hollywood aspirations. "It would be stupid for anyone to make the move to the West now. Their theatre business is crashing because of the influx of digital media. Asia, on the other hand, is where Hollywood was 15 years ago. It is a lucrative time for entertainment here. These are baits that I won't fall prey to," the two times National Award winning actress said.

"If an American film ['The Jungle Book', 2016] is doing Rs 100 crore business, and not all our films are able to, we may not find adequate screens for home-bred films 10 years down the line. I'm all for world cinema, but it needs to be a film that brings employment and money into our country. I don't wish to offer myself on a platter to another industry,” Kangana added.

Referring to the ugly and public war of words between her and Hrithik Roshan last year, Kangana said, “I was dragged to court for being who I am. I was restricted to a relationship that was [carried out] behind closed doors and I fought it fair and square. People [can] talk rubbish, but they can't decide how I lead my life.”

Kangana also admitted being stigmatised and feeling betrayed and hurt over the whole issue.
