Kangana Ranaut should retrospect on why her films are big flop at box office

Kangana undergoes an "identity crisis," and that's clearly reflected as flops in her career. Every actor undergoes this phase where they shift gears from their "comfort zone" and experiment with new genres.

Kangana Ranaut, who is always boasting about her national awards and early success, is facing backlash these days. She was not only arrogant but also manipulative; her approach was very arrogant and bogus. She grabbed all the limelight when Maharashtra state was going through a COVID crisis. She may call herself “the greatest artist of all time in Hindi films,” but that doesn’t seem to translate into the box office, as her latest release, Tejas, is turning out to be her 11th flop in a row.

People are getting amused with her social media posts and appearances but they refuse to see her movies, which are either agenda driven or show content bankruptcy.

Kangana undergoes an “identity crisis,” and that’s clearly reflected as flops in her career. Every actor undergoes this phase where they shift gears from their “comfort zone” and experiment with new genres. A few move away from romance and venture action, and some move from character roles towards masala flicks. But Kangana has indulged in political propaganda and most of the recent movies are to suit the interests of the BJP. Her upcoming movie on Indira Gandhi is also going to be a super-duper flop because the subject is hammered again and again by PM Modi in many of his electoral speeches. The BJP IT cell has addressed the issue of emergency several times. There won’t be something new to watch in the movie. Earlier, there were several movies on this subject but hardly any buyers.

Moreover, if she makes a movie to influence voters in that case, she is again mistaken because those voters who are against Gandhi are not going to vote for Congress in any case, and those who are Congress loyalists will definitely not get impressed with this movie stunt. God only knows why she is running her career.

There is no doubt that she was a great actor and a talented show stealer during her initial days. She can pull out complex roles in a convincing manner – as in ‘Gangster‘ and ‘Fashion‘. She had her share of struggle in the industry but it was not as harsh as she romanticizes. She is living a “double life” – the one she wants to be and the one she is. If you watch her interviews in the initial days, there was so much clarity and confidence in her answers, but these days, short of words, she keeps wandering away from the topic and isn’t able to focus on the answer. She struggles to answer simple questions. Or she creates controversy by spitting venom. People are tired of her using this tactic. She looks opportunist; she was using the Sushant Singh case all along to settle scores with Karan Johar and Khan’s of the industry. She thinks she’s the only good actor in the industry and openly criticizes other actors. She’s very obnoxious. I don’t think I need to remind you about the Hrithik episode; she tried so hard to harass that poor guy. And at the end, she exposed her own lies; now everyone knows the truth. She makes silly statements, like if you don’t give me a national award for my film, then your credibility is in question. Seriously, that is so desperate.

Her sister, Rangoli, is equally horrible. She attacked Sonam Kapoor viciously, calling her a terrible actress, just because Sonam said that everything Kangana says cannot be trusted, but she had also supported Kangana. She attacked Alia Bhatt for not attending the screening of Manikarnika, but when Alia apologized, she attacked her again. She called her Karan Johar’s puppet, and a lot more, even after Alia said she didn’t hate Kangana and it was just a misunderstanding. After this, Alia acted maturely. Alia refused to give any comment and said she would talk to Kangana personally; she doesn’t want the whole world to know. If anybody says the slightest thing to Kangana, she reacts to it. The first rule of being a celebrity is not reacting to negative comments, because hate is inevitable. But Kangana cannot ignore anything. Shabana Asmi, who is a veteran actress, was accused by Kangana of being ‘anti-national’. Her career is not even half of what Shabana’s is.

Those viewers who once loved this queen of screens now ignore her; they don’t take her and the movies acted and produced by her seriously. She has lost her sheen after joining propaganda politics. Her recent film Tejas failed to witness growth in its opening weekend, with numbers even decreasing compared to the release day. She has forgotten that she is an actress and not a propaganda shop; if she keeps beating around the bush, then in that case, politics would be the only option left and she will not have much to gain there. She is a good actress; she should stay balanced and engaged in her work. There is nothing wrong with taking a political stand. The class she wants to please with her political stand is not the audience of her films. A good actor became a victim of her own social ignorance. A good actor who always keeps a low profile but his work speaks loud, Vikrant Massey’s ‘12th Fail‘ is leading at box office. Kangana Ranaut has not been able to find success with her films. Her film Tejas has become the actress’ 11th consecutive flop in the last 8 years.

Her last hit film was Tanu Weds Manu, which was released in 2015. Since then, she has had a series of flops like I Love NY, Katti Batti, Rangoon, Simran, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, Judgemental Hai Kiya, Panga, Thalaivii, Dhaakad, and Chandramukhi 2.

Kangana went overboard with the craft, which made her screen presence unpleasant. In fact, the director was so focused on Kangana that he underutilized talented actors like Ashish Vidyarthi, Anshul Chauhan, and others. The film’s plot of Tejas was far from reality and it looked like the makers opted for an unrealistic approach. There was no relevance or resonance to the current scenario of the Indian Air Force officers. The scenes were not connected properly, which made the narrative a bumpy ride for the cafe-goers. One of the biggest letdowns of the film was the poor VFX. If the makers had done a decent job in this department, it would have made a huge difference. The scene of the battle between fighter planes, which was a crucial part, looks very amateurish and bad.

Kangana still has time to retrospect and reason about how she can remain one of the most beloved actors in Bollywood. Or else she will end up establishing her identity as a propaganda queen.
