Kangana Ranaut’s story. Most celebs are private about their personal lives, future projects and finances, but Kangana Ranaut isn’t like most celebs.
In an interview with Economic Times, Kangana got upfront and candid about her financial affairs.
Kangana Ranaut’s story:
“When I started working, I was just 17. I had access to money and there were people around me who used to do drugs, become shopaholics or just some other kind of addict. To my credit, I chose a healthy path. In this short span, I’ve not only bought a house for myself, but supported my family a lot,” said the actor.
Surely, dealing with money from such an early age must’ve made Kangana a pro at handling her finances? Apparently not.
“I love making and spending money, but keeping track of it? That (sister) Rangoli does. Meeting CAs, filing my taxes, keeping track of my bonds and transactions — that makes me very sad. I feel people from that world behave like machines. In the banking world, it’s all about digits. I don’t understand that. In our world, interactions are more intuitive and vibe-oriented (laughs),” she said.
Her first investment was a house, a decision she is particularly proud of, and though she admits to being a spender, she makes sure she lives within a budget.
The actress also revealed that her favoured investments include real estate, gold (because she loves antique jewellery)… and stocks.
Kangana Ranaut’s story “I do live within a budget. It’s because of my upbringing. I’m very resourceful, even though I come across as this person with lots of clothes and bags. But I clean my own bags and keep my fancy shoes wrapped in my beautiful closet where I have a whole wall dedicated to just shoes,” she said.
And while many may believe that money cannot buy happiness, Kangana believes otherwise.
“It can buy everything, even happiness. Well, maybe short-lived happiness. I mean, let’s talk about Miu Miu and Prada (laughs),” added Kangana.
