Kangana Ranaut comes from the hill town of Manali in Himachal Pradesh. She did her schooling from Shimla. Kangana's dream to act in films brought her to Delhi where she learnt acting while doing theatre.
It happened in September 2005, when Kangana was drinking coffee with one of her friends at a cafe in Mumbai. Filmmaker Anurag Basu , who had already directed a successful film, Murder , was keeping an open eye for the heroine of his next movie Gangster .
It was there Basu spotted Kangana Ranaut and called her for the audition. Despite the fact that Kangana is not from a filmi background and has no real acting experience, Basu decided to cast her in his film. The rest, as they say, is history.
