NEW DELHI: "Politics shouldn't be a career. I feel if someone like me wants to join politics, then first of all they have to achieve detachment," said Kangana Ranaut in response to a query of a reporter during her interactive session along with Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.
Kangana addressed a range of topics, including lynching during the session. The actress said one should give up one's family, home and children to best serve the country.
“At this point, I am very successful in my career so I don’t want to make my career in another field.”
The actress, who is busy with “Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi”, said: “If I have to serve for my land then there shouldn’t be vested interests of mine because then there will be conflict of interests.
Last week, she attended a screening of a film, based on the childhood of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, where she spoke highly of him, calling him the rightful leader of the country.
The actoress also spoke about how it's unfair that her contemporaries in Bollywood shy away from speaking about politics.
"Artistes always say that we should not talk about it (politics), we get into trouble but if (someone), who is so successful and has 25 cameras and mediapersons covering him or her, doesn't talk then who else will? Then why are you successful?
"What does success mean to you? Just earning money, eating and having fun? You haven't been kept at a pedestal so that you can live your small life easily, the people have kept you there so that you also think about them," she added.
“Not long ago, a celebrity made a statement that we don’t have water and electricity problem, so why should we talk about it? And it hurts. You cannot talk like that. What kind of an individual talks like that? You are a part of this country and it’s not just about you.”
