Mumbai: The success of ‘Queen’ has catapulted Kangana Ranaut to the big league, but the "self-made" actress who has quite a few given good films in her eight-year career, says she is only "trying to make my own identity" and doesn`t aspire to win "flavour of the season" tag.
From her first film ‘Gangster - A Love Story’ to ‘Woh Lamhe’, ‘Life...in a Metro’, ‘Fashion’ and ‘Tanu Weds Manu’, the 27-year-old proved her mettle whenever she faced the camera. But the success of Vikas Bahl directed ‘Queen’, which has collected about Rs.50 crore at the domestic box-office, is like an icing on the cake.
But the success hasn`t gone to her and she said: "I am a self-made person. Whatever I have achieved till date, I have struggled a lot for it."
"`Queen of Bollywood` is tag, which is given to different actresses every month, so I don`t want any such tag," the actress told reporters Wednesday at the film`s success party hosted by Bahl.
Kangana, who won Nation Award for best supporting actress for her portrayal of a troubled model in ‘Fashion’, will next be seen in the lead in ‘Revolver Rani’, releasing April 25.
"I have been struggling from the last eight years and where I have reached today, I am still not the flavour of the season and I don`t aspire to be one. I do my job honestly. I do different kind of work and I am trying to make my own identity," she said.
