The BEST Movies of Kangna Ranaut
Barely in her 20s, Kangna Ranaut proved her potential in front of the camera with her first film itself.
In the last seven years, her filmography is filled with a bittersweet mix of memorable and forgettable movies and performances. A director’s actress, Kangna is prone to both -- shine and crumble under the right/wrong guidance.
After a lull, the 26-year-old star is making heads turn with her stunning, self-assured delivery as a shape-changing mutant in Rakesh Roshan’s successful franchise, Krrish 3
On that note, here’s a look at some of her most impressive work so far.

Anurag Basu’s acclaimed Gangster marked the debut of a young Kangna Ranaut.
With her wild hair and glycerine eyes, the newcomer excelled in a role demanding gentle understanding of a complex, melancholic character around a love triangle of intense attachments, manipulation and betrayal.

Kangna’s uninhibited persona comes in handy as she slipped under the skin of a schizophrenic actress whose life -- personal and professional falls apart irreversibly in Mohit Suri's Woh Lamhe.
Loosely based on the equation shared by director Mahesh Bhatt and actress Parveen Babi, it’s Kangna’s courage and vulnerability that lends Woh Lamhe its true soul.

Life in a... Metro
Basu extracted yet another winner from Kangna in the ensemble, Life in a… Metro for which the star sported specs and straightened her unruly, wiry mane.
As the smart, sassy working woman who compromises her integrity to climb the success ladder in office till she eventually figures it’s not worth it, the actress gets both the tone and wryness of her character.

Leaving her contemporaries to do the traditional parts, Kangna willingly signed up to portray the dark, disturbed horse.
Like in Madhur Bhandarkar’s Fashion, Priyanka Chopra goes through the usual rags to riches to realisation rigmarole while Kangna exudes drama, derangement and desperation as a fading supermodel coping with a destructive dependency on drugs.

Raaz- The Mystery Continues
While we’ll admit there's nothing novel about watching Kangna go slight kooky again, she does enliven the over-the-top horror with her curious mix of method and madness.
She was particularly applauded for her ‘possessed’ performance.

Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai
After doing unconventional for the longest time, Kangna loosens up to enjoy Ajay Devgn’s romantic overtures in Milan Luthria’s verbose underworld saga, Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai.
Her breezy chemistry with camera, especially when paying tribute to yesteryear divas in her dazzling retro avatar, is hard to miss.

Tanu Weds Manu
Wobbly accent aside, Kangna rocks the show with her effervescent performance as the quirky but adorable Tanu in the title.
The hit rom-com owes much of its fortune to the entertaining play off between her pizzazz and R Madhavan’s composure.
