She added: "In Newyork, I studied screenwriting, directed a small film in California at the age of 24, which gave me a breakthrough in Hollywood, after seeing my work a big agency hired me as a director, I buried all my acting ambitions, did not have the courage to return to India (cont)."

Kangana said that the 2014 film, directed by Vikas Bahl changed her life.
