In 2017, Kangana had visited the border security force’s border headquarters in Jammu to promote its film Rangoon. There, Kangana, when she spoke to the BSF staff, had revealed why she thought a fauji (man in uniform) would be the perfect life partner for her.
According to The Times of India, when BSF jawans told her that women did not want to marry men from the armed forces, Kangana laughed and said: “Koi bewakoof hi ladki hogi jo fauji ko reject karegi (Only a stupid girl would reject a man in uniform). I find men in uniform very attractive and full of integrity. ” The actress also joked that she might be able to find her ‘ideal jeevansaathi (life partner) among the Javanese. When someone asked her what she was looking for in a life partner, she said, “Who knows, maybe I’ll find him here today!”
Rangoon was a period war film that also starred Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor. In the Vishal Bhardwaj instruction, Kangana played an actor named Julia, who appeared in army camps during World War II. Kangana said she had wanted to visit a military camp as an actress ever since she had heard about the concept from her grandfather – even a military man. She said: “My grandfather, a retired colonel, used to tell us stories about Meena Kumari and Nargis ji who visited his camps. It used to be common practice at one point. I would like to do that. If we promote a film about men who fight on the border, why not just go to those people. “
Kangana was last seen on screen in last year’s political biopic Thalaivii, which was inspired by the life of former Tamil Nadu Prime Minister J Jayalalithaa. Next time, she will be seen in the action thriller Dhaakad. The actor is currently hosting the reality web series Lock Upp. The captivity-based show streams every day on Alt Balaji and MX Player with Kangana’s Judgment Day episodes streaming over the weekend.
