New Delhi: Kangana Ranut who is gearing up for her next release 'Ungli', is never afraid of speaking her mind in public.

From making some unconventional choices of cinema to her reserved behaviour, Kangana stands out different in crowd of stars. While talking to a leading daily Kangana feels that her life's "intense ­struggles" have made her mature for her biological age. "I don't feel like a 27-year-old, I feel I am way mature than someone that age," says Kangana.

She says that she can't have a ­conversation about social network and playstations, and that's why it's ­difficult for her to ­connect with actors of her age. "People talk about playstations, video games, social ­network and Twitter, I can't handle it," says the Queen actor.

She'd rather sit in solitude and enjoy her ‘me' time. "I write poems, I meditate," she says, ­adding that she doesn't need to do ­conventionally cool things to be cool. "I don't live up to people's expectations. I don't do the ­conventional cool things; I know I am the coolest ­person."

Kangana is not just pretty face but a powerful actress too and this she has proved time and again. Not conforming to the stereotype that actresses are merely eye candies in films, Kangy was quoted in an interview saying, “Why does a girl need to be pretty? There's more to a female actor than lipsticks. I won't let a director roast and grill my body.”

The actress won a National Film Award in the Best Supporting Actress category for her performance in ‘Fashion', which was a women-centric film. Her performance in ‘Queen' was highly praised by the critics and they were in awe of the actress.

Kangana who will next be seen in “Ungli”, will soon begin shooting for her Imran Khan-starrer ‘Katti Batti'.
