'I am scared of snakes'

She has given path-breaking performances in feature films but actor Kangana Ranaut feels the future of cinema will be movies made for the internet.

“It is not just me, I think the whole world knows that the future of cinema is internet movies because a two-and-a- half-hour film is not the future. The future is online. The sooner we realise that, the sooner we catch up. We won’t be lagging behind the rest of the world,” Kangana said.

The actor was speaking at the launch of filmmaker Shirish Kunder’s short movie ‘Kriti’.
The ‘Queen’ star said she would love to feature in a short film but the genre should be similar to that of ‘Kriti’, a psychological thriller, rather than a slice of life.

“I would love to (do short films). Short film is difficult and a new world for people who are a part of full length feature films... I think the genre has to be something exactly like this,” she said.

“It really affected me. It has to be impactful. A love story or a slice of life won’t work for me in a short film,” Kangana added.

The 18-minute short film starring Manoj Bajpayee, Radhika Apte and Neha Sharma deals with the complexities of a character’s mind.

When asked what phobia does she have, Kangana, 29, said she is extremely scared of snakes.

“I have snake phobia. I am very, very scared of snakes. I promise myself to not tell anyone because actors who are friends and co-stars love to know about your phobia and love to play stupid pranks,” she quipped.
