Filmmaker Anurag Basu, who directed Kangana Ranaut's first Bollywood film, Gangster (2006), is happy to see her grow as an actor. "Kangana is fantastic. She is growing with each film. I remember, before we started shooting for Gangster, we had a workshop. I saw a spark in her, but had no idea that she will become such a huge star. I feel proud when I look at her growth," says Basu, who also collaborated with Ranaut on Life In A Metro (2007) and Kites (2010).
