Kangana Ranaut was recently remembering her early struggles in the fashion industry saying that she was rejected and shamed for being short.
The Tanu Weds Manu star is a Himachal Pradesh native and left for Delhi at a very young age so she could make a career out of modeling.
In a recent interview, Kangana spoke about how ramp models are expected to be 5 '11 or 6 ft tall in Delhi and said that she was unable to get any proper modeling assignments due to her height being 5'7.
She was asked if she had ever been to Mumbai before she moved to the mega city for her acting career.
She replied saying, “When I left home in Himachal I was 12-13 years old. I was studying in a hostel in Chandigarh. Later I came to Delhi and stayed for one to two years. In 2004, I came to Mumbai for a modeling assignment and then I threw away the phone my agency gave me. When they called me back (to Delhi) I even tore my ticket. I told them that I don't want to go back.”
The actress, 36, made her debut in Bollywood with Anurag Basu’s Gangster, starring opposite Emraan Hashmi and Shiney Ahuja and remains one of the most popular actors of Bollywood.
