Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has always been in news for her controversial statements. After taking a dig at Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt, the actress has now accused filmmaker Pahlaj Nihalani for making her pose in a satin robe without undergarments for a film’s photo shoot.
In an interview with Mid Day, Kangana spoke up about the start of her career when she had just started auditioning for movies. She speaks up about a specific time when she was asked to do a photo shoot wearing nothing but just a satin robe. It was for a Pahlaj Nihalani film, which makes it even more weird.
Kangana Ranaut was asked to wear robe
Kangana mentioned the incident in a recent talk show and said, “The fact that people met, and promised to guide and help me, but then I was put under house-arrest. And then Pahlaj Nihalani had offered me a film called I Love You Boss. They had a photoshoot where they gave me a robe to wear, and no undergarments. So I just had a satin robe for a show-girl pose, from which I had to stick my leg out, coming out of darkness.”
She further added, “They should at least have given some tapes. I was supposed to play a young girl lusting after her middle-aged boss. So it was a soft-porn sort of character. And I had this epiphany that I can’t do this. I felt like this is exactly what my parents were talking about.”
Kangana goes on reveal that she didn’t stop the photo shoot and went ahead with it. However, stepped away from the film right after the photo shoot. “I actually went through the photo shoot, but then I disappeared. I changed my number. And around that time, I was giving auditions, and had tested for Anurag Basu’s ‘Gangster’ (2006), and Puri Jagannadh’s ‘Pokiri’ (2006). Luckily, I got both films, and had to take the call, you know, how something doesn’t happen for the longest [time], and you get two-three things together, I was in that phase! I chose Gangster, but ‘Pokiri’ went on to become a big hit as well, and then I worked with Puri sir later.”
