Don't tell me to cover up, says Kangana Ranaut

Don't tell me to cover up, says Kangana Ranaut

The Katti Batti actress talks about her pet peeve during a racy shoot

Intimate movie scenes usually cause a stir, and actresses pull out all stops to nip any negative publicity in the bud. But some stars think the whole hulabuloo surrounding it is quite unnecessary. Unsurprisingly, the feisty Kangana Ranaut is one of them.

In a recent interview with film critic Anupama Chopra, she talked about the hypocrisy that surrounds the shoot of intimate scenes:

"I react to it (an intimate scene) when I read it. If I’m convinced about it and if I’ve got my character right, then it just flows through. Then it’s not like that as soon as I’ve done my scene I go ‘shawl kahan hai meri izzat bachaa lo! Meri cleavage na kisi ko dikh jaaye, bachaa lo mujhe!"

Not only that, she also pulls the leg of directors who behave like guardians of her morality as soon as she wraps up a racy scene: "There are some directors also like that. If you’re wearing short clothes and standing, they’d go ‘madam ko kuch do bhai’. Kyun do bhai? Why can’t you see me like this? It’s very ‘inko dhakaiye’. And I’m like I’ve shot the entire scene for half a day, it’s going to be out for everyone to see and you can’t see me in shorts?"

We have to say the girl makes a lot of sense. Kudos to Kangana for speaking her mind and making us all chuckle while she's at it!

Her next film, Katti-Batti is slated to release on September 18.
