Kangana Ranaut - who is she really?

Kangana Ranaut promoting RangoonKangana Ranaut* had a personality which is apparently stubborn, with "high self-esteem, super sensitive, and bold" – words she has used to describe herself. She has also called herself difficult, tough, and someone who has always done what she wanted.

Looking at her delicate features and elf-like appearance, one cannot help but wonder whether this is a fa├žade? It is bravado? Is Kangana really the badass that she calls herself, from the inside?

The hand never lies, and studying it can give us some answers.

Kangana has a large palm, and shortish fingers, some of them quite markedly conic at the tips, and the heartline is prominent on her active (right) hand. Her fingers are normal in length, although the little (Mercury) finger is low set and sticks out. The middle (Saturn) finger is slightly bent in the top phalange and it's likely that the index (Jupiter) finger is also bent. Kangana's heartline tends to stand out. It's long, dark, straightish and low-set and seems to tilt towards the headline at the end. The headline is better in the beginning and then in the latter half of her life and it seems to be broken or weak in the middle.

You can see additional images of Kangana's hands here, and here. (The photo published above is a free photo from the wiki.)

Her hand shows some ego, not excessive, and this is a developed characteristic (not present on her passive, left hand, which shows the subconscious qualities), and when it comes to self-esteem (different from ego), her hand does not show anything but normal self-esteem…neither high nor low. This is actually a good thing, because high self-esteem is an indication of a personality a little out of balance, and combined with ego, it can mean a dogmatic, arrogant personality. In fact, people with self-esteem which is higher than normal are usually bad actors as they find it difficult to get into another skin. Kangana in fact has the ability to get into the skin of the character she is playing very easily and it's an amazing ability. Partly this is because she is flexible, highly emotional, sensitive, and very impressionable and idealistic.

However, Kangana’s hands also show that she can be controlling and dominating, but she is not dogmatic and neither is she arrogant. In fact, her hand shows her to be far less controlling and manipulative than many Bollywood stars out there. Kangana’s fault perhaps lies in the fact that she is not conniving or subtle enough. Another fault is that she is not a good thinker and her analytical ability is very limited. She thinks with her heart, not her brain. 

Her hand shows a normal amount of stubbornness, but she can be a little headstrong or maybe one should say "heartstrong" and if there is no such word it should be invented for Kangana. Her hand does not show her to be too unreasonable though, as she can be convinced if necessary. But she is a bit of a cynic.

Her weakness is possibly her idealism. This is probably why she refers to herself as difficult. She would not like to compromise her ideals easily. Or if she does, it will eat into her.

This personality characteristic becomes enhanced because of her impressionability and the fact that her heart plays such a strong role in her personality, at least the way she is today. She is likely to attain a better balance in this aspect of herself in a few years, but presently she is not there yet. This will not make her sound like a logical person to others, but she has her own logic.

Interestingly, her passive (left) hand shows a good balance between the head and heart qualities. Something in her environment changed her. Her background is well-known, about her striking it out on her own and defying her environment. She also likely went through severe emotional trauma in the process. 

And is she the tough nut she says she is? Well, she is certainly an independent thinker and the kind of person who will not get cowed down by society. She is likely to do what she wants regardless of what other people think, because she acts according to her feelings. The hand confirms that. Neither is she a weakling, as she has sufficient self-esteem not to be cowed down. But her outspokenness and courage is more a result of her confidence and strong heart qualities rather than any stoicism of nature. In fact, it is more likely that she takes things harder than the average person.

She is high-spirited and enthusiastic, and very independent. And if her behaviour seems odd at times, it is most likely that she is not using her objective and thinking faculties as well as she should. She is very likely to change in the coming years, and this will make her happier and more at peace with herself.

  1. Could you please do Emraan Hashmi?

    1. I will keep it in mind. I need to get a lot of hand photos before I can proceed.

  2. Ma'am, could you suggest some books on Palmistry?

    1. Shubham, you should start with Benham's Laws of Scientific Hand Reading. But keep in mind that knowledge of hand reading has moved on, so keep the scepticism alive. Always verify from your own experience. Whichever book you read, give your own experience (by this it doesn't mean verification in just one hand but at least 10) the most importance.

  3. Mam could u read Shreya Ghoshal's palm please!

    1. I will check if the hand photos are available. I need at least a dozen good photos of the hand like her waving at a crowd. If they are available, then certainly.

  4. Sonam Kapoor would be interesting

    What do you think of the controversies she keeps landing in? I really don't know what to make of Kangna. Part of me wants to believe her what happened with Hrithik Roshan and Manikarnika, but I get a strong feeling she is really crazy stubborn and self destructive. I mean she definitely is independent minded and would always be different which is a great quality no doubt. But why is it so hard for her to be peaceful and get along with people in Bollywood? What's your opinion?

    1. One can never really know what happened between her and Hrithik although my sympathies lie with Kangana. I think that she is ruled by her heart and is impulsive, and this is from what I see on her hand. She is clearly not using her head and that is why she may do things which are not in her self-interest. That is exactly why it is hard for her to be peaceful. Idealism is also present.
