Behold! The queen has spoken!

Kangana Ranaut has declared that it's "foolish" of Bollywood actors to go work in the west. Contrary to what her contemporaries such as Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra seem to believe, Kangana thinks right now is a great time to be in Bollywood, not Hollywood.

"It would be stupid for anyone to make the move to the West right now. Their theatre business is crashing because of the influx of digital media. Asia, on the other hand, is where Hollywood was 15 years ago," The Indian Express quoted the Rangoon star as saying.

I have always operated from the place of my individuality: Kangana Ranaut

Adding that she has no interest in working overseas, Kangana said, "It is a lucrative time for entertainment here. These are baits that I won’t fall prey to."

Kangana also said that she feels most actors refrain from speaking the truth for fear of a backlash from the public. “People appreciate the goody two-shoes. Even the most successful women want to be liked by others," shared the actor. "There is the alluring promise of heaven for those who can love selflessly. It’s fine if they can’t look themselves in the eye, but the world should see them as the epitome of holiness. They [her colleagues] don’t stand up for themselves, forget doing it for others.”
