Irna Quershi writes about exactly this in the Guardian.
Classics like Pakeezah, Mughal-e-Azam and Taj Mahal infused in me a sense of belonging. This was the first time I actively listened to Bollywood music, usually just recording the songs from the TV manually, by holding a cassette recorder near the speakers. These songs felt special because they were in my mother tongue which I rarely spoke outside home. It was the first time I hummed popular songs that weren't in English. These films made me feel that our language, music, clothes and culture were worthy of appreciation.
And now, let's all appreciate the special type of no-filter interview that can only be given by my one-and-only Kangana Ranaut!
Do you see yourself getting married?
No, I don’t want to ever get married. I cannot even handle a full-time boyfriend. I have so much to do everyday and cannot address the person’s needs of just wanting to be around them. People who get married need to go to a pyschiatrist. Even if people are happily married, a legal contract for possessing someone’s body and soul is so needy. If someone does that to me I will lose interest in that person.
And I feel the same way, my dear. Kangs also talks about her relationship with her father (terrible, natch, given her predilection for daddy figure-boyfriends) and how awful it was after her sister had acid thrown in her face by a scum-of-the-earth guy.
Plus a bonus little PR story is that about Kangs' Rajjo, which ended up having a majority female crew.
A little more with Rajkumar Yadav's new film with La Pinto.
"It's a film entitled NH10 meaning National Highway No 10. It will be shot around Delhi. I signed the film because I am a great fan of Navdeep's Manorama Six Feet Under. Having Freida Pinto as my co-star is definitely interesting," says Rajkumar whose next release is Vikas Behl's Queen opposite Kangna Ranaut.
Oh!! I didn't realize he was in Queen!! Very cool!
Priyanka Chopra to voice a character in Disney's attempt to remake Cars but with airplanes.
I wonder which accent she'll use… (just kidding!) She's a fine choice, I'm sure.
Personally, however, I loathe this kind of CGI animation. I can't sit through ANY film that uses it. Is it a generation gap? Does anybody else have trouble watching that kind of CGI? There's something creepy about it.

Kabir Khan talks about his next film.
The director feels that after the success of Ek Tha Tiger, it has become relatively easy for him to meet producers and actors to present his ideas. "Fortunately or unfortunately commercial success is a big element of recognition in our industry. So, when a film like Ek Tha Tiger does the kind of numbers it did, somewhere I get an access to producers and actors and be able to present my ideas in a stronger way and have the freedom to do anything I want to," Kabir said.
Have some Kangana since I was just talking about her!
