Actors lead a hectic life and Kangana Ranauat is no exception. Just recently, the young lady bought herself a double bedroom flat in Bandra and to be part of happiness, her parents came down all the way from Manali to Mumbai. But their daughter didn’t have time to spend with them. “She was busy shooting and travelling. Kangana was in Istanbul shooting for Roshan and then in Malaysia,” says a source close to the actress. The result was, her parents had to leave without getting to spend much time with her. “She had no time at all to be with them. So now Kangana after completing her schedule, has taken 15 days break to be with her parents in Manali. She will return back to the city after spending quality time with them,” the source reveals.
“We had gone to Manali to shoot songs for Samir’s ‘Roshan’. We chose an untouched location far away in the hills. How were we to know that we’d have to return without shooting the songs?” asks Kangana.
Hailing from the Himachal, Kangana actually was pretty ecstatic at the locations chosen. “But our joy was soon gone when it began to rain. Bobby (Deol) and I were stuck in a tent in the middle of nowhere for almost a week,” Kangana said. “We’d rush out when the rain stopped. But as soon the camera was set up and we got into position we’d have to rush back into the tent,” she added.
Eventually, the unit had to comply with the meteorological moodiness. “The direc tor turned the song into a rain-oriented number. But guess what happened? The torrential rains then decided to turn into a drizzle. The rushes looked like scratches on the camera lenses. Now we’ll be shooting in Mauritius next month. Let’s hope the rain gods will be kinder there,” she complaints.
Kangana Ranaut claims to be undergoing a lifestyle change. She’s spending time meditating and doing yoga. She says, “I believe in Karamyoga. The idea is not to get Moksha, but to awaken my subconscious mind. I have given up salt, alc0hol, physic@l relationships and even my friend circle. I will get married and have kids at the right time. I wear only white clothes these days.”
The actor insists that she is not exactly a yogi. She says, “Right now I am completely into my work, meditation and pranayam and classical singing. It gives me tremendous joy. I have been into meditation and yoga since I was 13, but that was a restless age. Today at 20, I feel more responsible. But I am not some kind of yogi. If you see me at public events or on the sets, you will hardly know what I am going through in my personal life.”
Kangana has her reasons for choosing this path. She says, “Life here is so stressful, I don’t want to lose my innocence, which I possessed when I came to Mumbai. People might sneer that I’m trying to become a saint at this age but one has to preserve oneself in this world.”
