Of all the Bollywood divas, Kangana Ranaut is one the fiercest, who believes in speaking her mind – we all know this for a fact. The actress has always been vocal about her opinions but how many times have we actually given a thought to what she says? If you’d paid attention, you’d see that the Simran actress has some important life lessons for us to learn. Here are a few that we can actually use in our everyday lives.

Let success do the talking
There’s no point in entertaining trolls, haters, or people who are just jealous of you and your life; simply let your success do the talking. The best revenge is to work hard and achieve everything that people said you couldn’t.
Never stop learning
So what if life is busy? You can always make time for your interests and expand your horizons. Between her hectic schedule, Kangana has managed to learn Kathak (which she considers a form of therapy), cook, and take up new hobbies, whenever she has the time.
Follow your dreams
There may come difficult (and confusing) situations when you want to take a particular path, but no one’s ready to have your back. In situations like these, don’t let them stop you from working towards your goals. Just believe in yourself and everything will fall into place. Kangana’s parents wanted her to become a doctor; however, she wanted to become a model. Since her parents weren’t supportive of her dreams, she refused any financial help from them and decided to follow her dream career. What happened next, we all know.
Embrace the person you are
Whether it’s expressing your opinion in public or choosing friends or even something as basic as picking your everyday outfit, you shouldn’t pretend to be someone else. Be happy in your own skin and who you are as an individual. Making desperate attempts to fit in a particular social group can only make it more depressing in the long run.
Don’t let anyone get under your skin
Don’t let people and their negative opinions get under your skin – it’s a waste of time and energy. Kangana has been subjected to a lot of name-calling, but she just lets it all roll off her back. In fact, when her ex-partner Adhyayan Suman tried to reveal ‘dark secrets’ from her past, she openly told him: “If your agenda is to shame me, it’s not happening”.
Speak the truth, even if it hurts people’s sentiments
Never shy away from speaking your mind or expressing something that you strongly believe in. Remember, how, on Koffee with Karan, Kangana openly sparked a debate on nepotism in her statements said to KJo? ICYMI, here’s what she said: “In my biopic, if ever it’s made, you’ll play that stereotypical Bollywood biggie, who is like, you know, very snooty and completely intolerant towards outsiders, flag bearer of nepotism, the movie mafia”.
Be your own hero
You can’t let anyone else overshadow you or dull your dream. If you follow Kangana’s Bollywood journey, you’ll notice that she’s never been dependent on any of the industry’s superstars for a career boost. In fact, she’s worked hard to pick and choose (and deliver on) roles that have made her career. You shouldn’t be dependent on anyone for your successes.
All hail Kween Kangana!
