From delivering some path-breaking performances in Bollywood to starting a new journey as a politician, actress Kangana Ranaut is ready to play a new role in her life.

Ranaut on Wednesday opened about her new role as the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections and her plans to join politics.

During a conversation at Times Now Summit, when the actress was asked if she already had plans of joining politics, she said, “The decision is always with the party but I have always openly supported BJP regardless of whether I am a party member or not. I have always fought for the BJP and supported Bharat. I always felt that my natural alignment of ideology or personality has always been that of a tadkta-bhadkta (flamboyant) right-wing or a glorious right-wing personality.”

She added, “To be a leader, people should say that ‘she should be a leader’. I think it’s a different kind of role and responsibility.”

Ranaut was announced as the Bharatiya Janata Party candidate from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi on Sunday.

Taking to Instagram stories, Ranaut shared the news and also thanked the BJP leadership.

“My beloved Bharat and Bhartiya Janta’s own party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has always had my unconditional support, today the national leadership of BJP has announced me as their Lok Sabha candidate from my birthplace Himachal Pradesh, Mandi (constituency) I abide by the high command’s decision on contesting Lok Sabha polls,” she wrote.

She added, “I feel honoured and elated to officially join the party. I look forward to being a worthy karyakarta and a reliable public servant. Thanks.”

On the work front, Ranaut will be next seen in Emergency, which also marks her first solo directorial.
