Kangana Ranaut says her success in the film industry tastes sweeter as it came late!
Over the years, the National Award-winning actress has impressed the critics and audiences alike her with roles in films like "Gangster - A Love Story", "Fashion", "Tanu Weds Manu Returns" and "Queen". And she doesn't mind the fact that she's turned out to be a late bloomer.
"I think the best part about my success is that it came so late. It matters a lot. As an individual how you take yourself. If I was a successful actress eight or nine years ago when I was a teenager, may be I would have ended up like my character in 'Fashion'," Kangana said during a media interaction here.
In "Fashion", she played a model who is first successful and then fails to tackle her fading fame.
Kangana says her balanced approach to life has come with age.
"Now at 28, I am mature and balanced as a woman... age does affect your perspective towards everything. The good part is my success came now when I can feel more balanced as a person and handle it with more maturity.
"Success, at a very young age, can be very hard to deal with... not at my age," quipped the actress, who will now be seen in "Katti Batti".
