My name was changed from Alka Gujjar to Alka Singh to avoid controversy ahead of the elections: 'Revolver Rani' Kangana Ranaut

The 27-year-old is not wary of giving politically incorrect answers and here's what she had to say about her upcoming movie 'Revolver Rani'.

Kangana Ranaut is one of those few actresses who bares her heart and speaks the truth in interviews. The too-good-to-be true demeanour that she displays in all her interviews was pretty evident when she recently came for 'Revolver Rani' promotion in the capital. The 27-year-old is not wary of giving politically incorrect answers and here's what she had to say about her upcoming movie 'Revolver Rani'. Read an excerpt from her interview given to IBNLive.com.


Your role seems to be quite interesting in 'Revolver Rani', can you shed some more light on your character in the movie?

The role of Alka Gujjar has been changed to Alka Singh because of the elections, so that we don't hurt any sentiments. The character is very interesting. She is an MLA and has a criminal record. The time I signed this movie, I asked Kabir that how can she be a murderer if she is a politician and Kabir showed me a list of politicians who had a criminal record.

What do you have to say about your director Sai Kabir, who is just two movies old?

There are only few directors who can laugh at their own story and Kabir's story is one of them. It's a funny, quirky take that's rarely seen in our movies. It's a new subject and the movies that we see these days are just based on almost the same subject, and the trend is continuing from past 10 to 15 years, only the face changes. Our cinema, I think is regressive, because our new filmmakers don't get enough opportunities and even if they get, they only grab it by following the same old concept. A budding moviemaker like him should be given enough opportunities and more producers should come up sponsoring such movies. We are planning to publish a novel on 'Revolver Rani'- named 'Revolver Rani Ka Badla'. And there would be sequels to it as well.


You have worked with Raj Kumar Rao, who recently bagged a National Award for 'Shahid', how was it working with him and what do you have to say about his achievement?

He is very good, 'Shahid' was very well deserved. It's nice to see our government felicitating real, genuine talent and people who are doing so well at this early stage of their career. And Raj is very gifted and talented, we wish him for his achievement.



Is Kangana Ranaut expecting a National Award for her stellar performance in 'Queen'?

Well, you see awards have never been my priority and I think, I have spoken a lot about it earlier.



There is this peculiar Michael Jackson track in the movie, so is it a tribute to the legend?


Michael Jackson's soul will cry after listening to this song. Alka Gujjar's driver's name in this movie is Pilot and he is fan of Michael Jackson and whenever she wants, he dances on MJ's number.
