Kolkata: Fasting for Navratri, actress Kangna Ranaut Monday asserted that being a woman she connects with goddess Durga. And the relationship only deepens through her profession which sees her in a variety of roles.
"When you play a character...being a woman... you have to understand the nine forms (of the goddess) have to surface out of you...and that helps you connect with the goddess and it`s easier as an artist," Kangana said.
The 26-year-old made her debut in 2006 with Anurag Basu`s `Gangster - A Love Story` and won the National Award for best supporting actress for her performance as a troubled model in the 2008 release `Fashion`.
Kangana, who is looking forward to the release of "Krrish 3", emphasised on her link with Bengali culture and says she won`t mind featuring in a Bengali film on goddess Durga.
"My first director Anurag Basu is a Bengali. So I have very strong connection with West Bengal...he introduced me to all the Bengali cuisine, culture and the word `bhalo` (good in Bengali)," said the actress.
"So I really feel very connected...so if a Bengali director makes a film based on Durga puja, then yes, I would love to do," she added.
She was here for the opening of Adrija Jewellery showroom.
