While the world was busy gearing up for celebrating Holi, no one was prepared for the news that Kangana Ranaut would be entering a new phase in her career and becoming a politician. The reports have now confirmed that the Queen actor is all set to contest in the Lok Sabha Elections 2024 from Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi seat for BJP. The news has left us all surprised even when everybody was sure that the actor would join politics someday. Now, it turns out Kangana has decided to make Holi the first day when she addressed the media for the first time as a politician. Her first address has kickstarted a conversation on the internet already, and here is everything you should know about it.

Kangana Ranaut’s First Media Interaction

Kangana Ranaut is back in the headlines, and this time around for joining politics as a politician and contesting in the 2024 elections. It was yesterday confirmed that the actor will be the BJP’s candidate for Himachal Pradesh’s Mandi seat. Now, while interacting with ANI, she has given her first address to the media and audience as a politician. While she is, of course, elated about the opportunity that she has gotten, she is also aware of the responsibility that comes with it.

Talking to the media about the same, Kangana Ranaut said, “Aapke saare darshako ko bohot bohot shubhkaamnaaye Holi ki. Mera suabhagya hai ki meri janmabhumi, mere apno ne mujhe wapis bulaya hai. Agar wo mujhe chunenge, main unki seva me tatpar rahungi. Isme koi do rai nahi hai (I wish everyone a Happy Holi. I'm fortunate that my birthplace has called me back. If the people of Mandi will elect me, I'll serve them to the best of my abilities.)"

Meanwhile, in the same address, she also spoke about how Home Minister Amit Shah is guiding her through this new journey. Kangana Ranaut also thanked PM Narendra Modi and said that she is thankful that he gave her this responsibility. She also revealed that Ex CM Jairam Thakur is also someone who is helping her through this new journey.

On Challenges And Bollywood Career

Furthermore, she spoke about making a career in Bollywood and the challenges. "Challenges to humesha se aaye hain. Main chhoti umar me vyavsay k liye ghar chhod kar bahar chali gayi thi. Usme bhi mujhe kai sankato ka saamna karna pada. Isi liye ishwar ne mujhme aisi shakti aur urja di hai ki shayad ab aap logo ki seva kar saku (I am not new to challenges in life. I left home for a profession at a very young age and faced many obstacles. That's why God gave me the strength to serve my people),” Kangana Ranaut said.
