Fashionista Kangna Ranaut goes back to her roots. Her new film borrows generously from the actress' own past experiences. In Vikas Behl's Queen Kangna has been cast as a dreamer with aspirations that her
small-town upbringing cannot accommodate. So what does she do?She sets out on a journey that takes her soaring into her aspirations.
Sounds familiar? Kangna's character in Queen is inspired by her own beginnings in a village in Himachal Pradesh.
Says a source, `When the script of Queen was being written it was Kangna's background as the innocent girl from the hills that was in the writer's mind. He built the screenplay around the basic idea of a girl from a
small town moving upwards with her dreams and aspirations. Kangna's life was the referemce point. `
One hears incidents from Kangna's past experiences have been incorporated into script.
Says a source, `The character is quirky whimsical emotional and volatile like Kangna. The line between the real Kangna and her character is so flimsy that Kangna many times ended up borrowing from her experiences
to play the role of Queen. `
Director Vikas Bahl admits, `In Queen audiences will get to see the quintessential Kangna. Under that chic veneer she is a simple girl from the hills who dreamt big and was propelled into the glam-world by her desire
to make her parents proud. `
Kangna's small-town look in the early part of the film is inspired by Jaya Bhaduri in Hrishikesh Mukherjee's Guddi and Rani Mukherjee in Bunty Aur Babli.
