New Delhi:

Kangana Ranaut is currently busy promoting her upcoming film Panga, in which she plays a mother and a kabbadi player. The actress recently opened up about her struggles after she left home and how she managed to earn money for sister Rangoli Chandel’s treatment.

''I was just 19, on the threshold of a bright career, when the attack happened and it was a long, hard struggle to deal with this kind of perverse, sexist cruelty. Financially too, I was not strong back then. Girls around me would feel depressed by a bad hair day or because a meal was not to their liking. I was grappling with something far more real and yet had no time to sit and cry. I did tacky films, took on roles I did not deserve, accepted guest appearances, so my sister could be treated by the best surgeon in India. It took 54 surgeries,'' she told Mumbai Mirror in an interview.

Recalling the days of her struggle when she left home, Kangana said, ''I fell into bad company straightaway. Some people took advantage of the fact that I was alone and couldn’t confide in my parents, and I’ve experienced the worst a person can go through. It toughened me up and made me the person I am. But I wouldn’t want my children to go through such extremes. I would want to be there for them.''

Meanwhile, Panga also stars Neena Gupta, Jassie Gill and Richa Chadha in pivotal roles. Kangana earlier revealed that she found the story of Panga touching. "My family has been my pillar of strength and have always stood by me in thick and thin. I could really relate to the emotions of the film. Plus, Ashwiny is known for her slice-of-life films and I loved her recent work Bareilly Ki Barfi. Panga is doubly special for me as for the first time, I will play the role of a national-level kabbadi player. That's going to be challenging for sure! I am looking forward to some exciting times with Ashwiny and the Fox Star team [the producers]," the Queen actor had said.

Helmed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, Panga is all set to hit the screens on January 24, 2020.
