MUMBAI: Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut has revealed why she was working on ‘no-Khans’ policy.

“In fact, there is no longevity with working with Khans. It’s the other way around. Where would it take me? Can it take me a notch higher than where I already am? It cannot! What can it give me that I have already not achieved? I can’t see a single thing,” the Queen actor said in an interview with Rajiv Masand.

She goes on to explain how in a Khan film, they dominate every frame and she would want to build her own brand.

“I have popularity. I have built a fan following of mine, where do I go from here. The only way I can last is by growth,” she said, “Let’s talk about a Khan film. Who is the hero in that film? When I have done and am working on films that give me the possibility of building a brand of my own individually, it will be very stupid of me to go and stand behind someone else and try and en-cash their popularity,” she clarified.

When asked whether she has any bitterness against any of the Khans, the 29-year-old said:

“Not really. Aamir is kind to discuss his films with me. It’s not that I have a different attitude towards them when I am around them. My attitude remains the same. Until Queen, I was very open to working the Khans. After Tanu Weds Manu, I realised that if in a film, I am not the hero, it will disappoint everyone. It’s a very professional strategy that I have adopted. And Shah Rukh sir, I am a huge fan. It’s very unfortunate that our paths will never cross,” she said.
