Kangana Ranaut, an actress who rose from the dust of controversies, became a force to be reckoned with when she showed her competition she can stand alone despite the muck thrown at her. When she was discovered at a coffee shop by Vikas Bahl, little did the world of Bollywood know a starlet was going to be born soon. From the very first movie she acted in to the multiple characters she played through the roles, Ranaut’s journey has been extremely inspiring. Check out her growth from Gangster to Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi!

1. Gangster 

When Kangana entered the world of Bollywood by playing the lead actress, everyone was taken over by her brilliant acting skills and by the way she captivated the audience. A surprising choice of film for her debut, Kangana proved she was in the industry to stay and using this movie as her stepping stone, Ranaut started soaring!

2. Life In A Metro

This particular film saw a change in Kangana’s character. For a lot of people, it was quite surprising to see the jump from bold to quiet. Playing the role of a secretary in love with her married boss, Kangana’s quiet character was quite the new spin. In fact, this film saw a brand new side to Ranaut, making people realise there were several more layers to her than what met the eye.

3. Fashion 

After two massive success (Gangster and Life In A Metro,) Kangana’s next film (Shakalaka Boom Boom) was a disappointment. While not many thought she could bounce back after a flop like this, Ranaut proved everyone wrong with her brilliant performance in Fashion. Known as the movie that turned around her career, Fashion gave Kangana the much needed wings. Not only did she play the character really well, she won several awards to reinforce this fact.

4. Raaz: The Mystery Continues 

Playing the role of a super model in a horror movie is not an easy task, but Kangana Ranaut did the unimaginable at this task by playing this role to perfection in Raaz: The Mystery Continues. This time, however, her character is possessed by a ghost and Ranaut, true to her style, plays the role really well! Incidentally, this film marked Kangana’s definite growth as an actress in the industry!

5. Tanu Weds Manu 

After a series of semi serious films, Kangana Ranaut made her foray into the world of romantic movies with Tanu Weds Manu. A girl used to doing whatever she wants to all her life, Tanu (Kangana Ranaut) is faced with a serious life changing choice when she falls in love with Manu (Madhavan.) This was perhaps one of the best performances by Ranaut and clinched her position as a serious actress in the industry.

6. Krrish 3  

Despite Tanu Weds Manu being such a massive success, the next couple of films went on to become box office disasters. Not surprisingly, Ranaut jumped back into the game with Krrish 3. One of her first films to cross the Rs. 100 crores mark, this film changed the course of Ranaut’s career!
Despite Krrish 3 becoming such a success, the actress’s career was slightly derailed because of the multiple controversies which came to light shortly after the movie hit the screens. The first was her alleged affair with Hrithik Roshan, her Krrish 3 co star, while the other major scandal was her calling out all the major stars and directors for everything they supposedly did wrong in the industry.

7. Queen 

With all the controversies surrounding Ranaut, what she needed was a turning point in her career. This breakthrough came in the form of Queen, which put Kangana Ranaut on the map of really great actresses. All the controversies from the past surrounding Ranaut were overshadowed by her wonderful performance in this film. Playing the role of a girl who discovers herself after being left at the altar, Ranaut proved to everyone that to love yourself, you do not need a man or acceptance from the society. Doing great things comes from within and this movie showed just that! In fact, so great was her acting in it, she made sure the film became a cult changer!

8. Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi

Not only will she play the role of the legendary warrior Rani Lakshmi Bai in this film, Kangana Ranaut will don the hat of a director for the first time in her impressive career. Proving to everyone she can really do everything at the same time, it is really going to be interesting to see how she pulls off this particular character. Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi is all set to hit the screens next year, so stay tuned for a really great film!

Despite Kangana Ranaut having such a successful career, her life has been quite riddled with controversies. However, despite all the backlash she received, Ranaut has always bounced back with more going on for her than ever! An inspiring story that puts her on the map, it is indeed refreshing to see a young girl enter the Bollywood world with no connections or family names to fall back upon. If you think we missed out on mentioning any other Kangana Ranaut films, comment and let us know!

Ranveer Singh Birthday - Looking At Some Of The Best Performances By The Actor, Ranveer Singh Birthday Special, #HappyBirthdayRanveerSingh, Ranveer Singh Best Movies, Ranveer Singh impressive performances, Best Performances by Ranveer Singh, Bollywood Actor Ranveer Singh Evergreen Roles, Mango Bollywood, energetic star Ranveer Singh Latest news

B-town’s most energetic star Ranveer Singh celebrates his 34th birthday today.  Ever since he made his debut in 2010, Singh has been the center of attention with his jaw dropping acting skills, flamboyance, energy and an out of the box fashion statement.  From being the cute and innocent wedding planner in his debut film, to essaying the role of a powerful tyrant, this man is a true representation of versatility. 

On the occasion of his birthday, let us take a look at some of his most impressive performances on the silver screen.

 

1) Band Baaja Baaraat (2010)

In his debut film Band Baaja Baaraat, Ranveer Singh was seen playing the quintessential Delhi boy Bittoo Sharma, who wants to start his own business.  Ranveer Singh’s acting style and accent in this film were so convincing, people thought he was actually from Delhi.  His effortless dance moves and quirky dialogues made Band Baaja Baaraat one of the most successful films of that year.  With his power packed performance in his debut film, he sent a strong message to the world—he is here to stay.

 

2) Lootera (2013)

Lootera is one gem which easily gets lost in Singh’s flashy filmography.  Marking a contrast from his energetic personality, Lootera saw Ranveer Singh take up the role of Varun Shrivastav, an archeologist who falls in love with a local landlord’s daughter.  This film was a testament to his depth and vast potential as an actor. Though Lootera underperformed at the box office, Ranveer’s performance got widespread applause from the critics and the audience.

 

3) Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela (2013)

We must say, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is a true star maker.  Though his performances in his previous films were appreciated, it was Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela which gave Ranveer Singh the name and fame he deserves.  This film saw Ranveer essaying the role of a quirky, feisty person and an intense lover.  The character, which was loud and dramatic, played to the actor’s strengths and Ranveer portrayed it remarkably well.  His mesmerizing dance moves and chemistry with Deepika Padukone became the talk of the town.  Ram-Leela was the first Rs. 100 crore film of Ranveer Singh’s career.

 

4) Padmaavat (2018)

What can we even say about this one? The Bhansali directorial Padmaavat saw Ranveer taking up the role of a self centered, gruesome ruler, Alauddin Khilji, who gets obsessed with Rani Padmavati’s beauty.  From his physique and body language to accent, Singh transformed everything about himself to get into the skin of this character. Ranveer absorbed every detail of this character and played it with utmost perfection on screen.  Though it was a negative role, Ranveer Singh’s acting brilliance was such, Khilji was the most loved character of 2018.  

 

5) Gully Boy (2019)

This year, we saw the energised bunny in a completely different avatar.  In the Zoya Akhtar directorial Gully Boy, Ranveer Singh took up the subdued role of Murad, an underdog with high ambitions.  Ranveer Singh changed his physique and body language yet again to suit the troubled ‘gully’ rapper.  With this film, he proved to the world not just his versatile acting skills, but also his rapping abilities.  Though Gully Boy had a niche subject, riding on Ranveer’s acting skills, it crossed the prestigious Rs. 100 crore mark.

 

With his last three films collecting Rs. 600 crores net at the Indian box office and his films such as ’83 yet to come, we must say, Ranveer Singh is quickly escalating towards superstardom. 

We wish this handsome hunk, Ranveer Singh, a very happy birthday and many more successful years ahead.

#27GoldenYearsofSRK – Best Performances Of SRK Till Date

#27GoldenYearsofSRK,Best Performances Of SRK Till Date,Mango Bollywood,Bollywood Celebs Latest News,#27YearsOfKingOfBollywood,27 Golden Years of SRK,Shahrukh Khan Best Performances,Shah Rukh Khan Golden Performances,SRK Completes 27 Years in Bollywood,SRK Best Movies

Twenty seven years ago today, an ordinary yet ambitious boy from Delhi made his silver screen debut with Deewana (1992.)  Back then, little did the world know this ordinary boy would become the King of Bollywood and rule it for decades.  Shah Rukh Khan or SRK, as he is popularly known, has had an incredible journey in Bollywood. From romantic and action to gangster, he experimented with various genres and gave us some extremely memorable characters.  Not just acting, King Khan has also won hearts by hosting award shows and giving TEDx talks and motivational speeches.

In these incredible 27 years, SRK featured in more than 80 films and received several accolades.  What better than this occasion to go down the memory lane and revisit some of his best performances till date.

 

1) Baazigar (1993)  

In the 1993 film Baazigar, Shah Rukh Khan was seen as the son who sets out to take revenge for the death of his father and would stop at nothing. 

SRK dared to play an anti hero in a generation where heroes were worshipped.  His acting was so intense and convincing, even though he played an anti hero who commits murders and deceives people, you still end up rooting for him. 

 

2) Darr (1993)

Yet again, Shah Rukh Khan did not hesitate to take up a negative character.

With Darr, he proved to the world he is a supreme actor who is here to stay.  SRK was seen as an obsessive lover and a creepy stalker who can kill to get the love of his life.  Khan portrayed this character with such perfection, it gives you goosebumps. The little nuances in his acting and the dark vibe he brings to the screen with this character are commendable.  His intense looks are enough to convince you he is an obsessive lover indeed! 

Who can forget the dialogue “k..k…k… Kiran?”

 

3) Devdas (2002)

In this Bhansali period drama, Devdas, you can see Shah Rukh Khan essaying the role of an intense lover.  No one could have done justice to this character like SRK did. His chemistry with Aishwarya, his alcohol addiction and troubles with family are played so well, it almost feels real.  The depth in his acting gives you yet another reason to call him the “King of Bollywood.”

 

4) Swades (2004)

Swades is arguably one of SRK’s best performances till date.  He took up a unique film like Swades at a time when he was gaining popularity as the King of Romance.  With his role in Swades, he proved to the world he can do more than just romance. 

The film traces the journey of a NASA scientist, Mohan, who comes to India and realizes his duty towards his Country. 

SRK’s intense performance pulls you into the film and you are bound to feel the emotions he feels on the screen.  His acting is so good, you will not find any traces of the King of Romance on the screen, all you can see is Mohan.

 

5) My Name Is Khan (2010)

Tracing the effects of the 9/11 attacks, this Karan Johar directorial witnessed Shah Rukh Khan deliver yet another gem of a performance.  SRK took up the role of Rizwaan Khan, a man with autism and portrayed it effortlessly on screen. Rizwaan’s innocent personality, his love for his people and the devastation he faces in his life are all delivered to perfection.  Once again, he set aside his superstar image and garnered the love of the audience as well as the critics.

These are a few of Shah Rukh Khan’s performances which we think were exceptional.  Apart from these films, SRK was also brilliant in Don (2006,) Chak De! India (2007,) Fan (2016,) Dear Zindagi (2016) and the list goes on and on. 

We wish this Superstar many more successful years ahead.
