Kangana Ranaut, the 22-year-old curly-haired beauty from Himachal Pradesh, is now on cloud nine after the success of her 2008 Bollywood hit movie ‘Fashion’ for which she won the 2009 Stardust Best Supporting Actress Award and 2009 Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award.

In Fashion, directed by Madhur Bhandarkar with Priyanka Chopra as the female lead, Kangana Ranaut played the role of a supermodel, who indulges in all the bad habits in the world of fashion and modeling and has a pathetic end. Incidentally, the character of the supermodel is based on the real life story of fashion model Gitanjali Nagpal.

Kangana had already made her debut in Kollywood movies through “Dham Dhoom”, directed by Jeeva. Kangana is now acting in Puri Jagannath's next Telugu film produced by Aditya Ram, featuring Prabhas as the male lead. Her fans expect she will weave her magic in Tollywood too.

Kangana made her debut in Bollywood through “Gangster” (2006), directed by Anurag Basu, which was critically and commercially successful. For her stellar performance in GANGSTER, Kangana Ranaut received SEVEN film awards; Filmfare Best Female Debut Award (2007), Filmfare Fairever Fresh Face of the Year Award (2007), IIFA Best Female Debut Award (2007), Star Screen Award for Most Promising Newcomer - Female (2007), Zee Cine Award for Best Female Debut (2007), Stardust Superstar of Tomorrow - Female (2007), and Bollywood Movie Award - Best Female Debut.

Her performances in “Woh Lamhe” (2006) and “Shakalaka Boom Boom” (2007) were also commendable. She starred in yet another Anurag Basu hit film “Life In A… Metro” (2007), for which Kangana Ranaut won the 2008 Stardust Breakthrough Performance Award (Female). The movie “Kites”, directed by Anurag Basu, which is in post-production stage, also features Kangana Ranaut.

Kangana Ranaut’s latest released film, “Raaz - the Mystery Continues”, with Adhyayan Suman and Emraan Hashmi, has been a commercial success and declared as the first reasonable box office hit of 2009.

Kangana Ranaut is to appear in a challenging role in the under-production film Milan Luthria’s “Once Upon a Time in Mumbai”. The story is about Haji Mastan and his love for the star of the 70s and Haji Mastan’s wife Sona (Kachche Dhaage - 1973). Haji was in love with Sona because she resembled his favorite actress Madhubala.

In Gangster, Kangana’s role was based on the story of Monica Bedi, Abu Salem’s love interest. In “Woh Lamhe” she played the role based on the story of Parveen Babi.

The hot actress Kangana Ranaut who struggled to become a fashion model and could not be a successful one, and tried her hands in theater acting, earlier had a skinny figure, but Kangana Ranaut has gained some weight for “Raaz - The Mystery Continues” and she now looks hotter than ever.
