Kangana Ranaut starrer Queen released on March 7 in 2014. The actor is celebrating seven years of her hit film’s release. Kangana, who is quite vocal on her social media, shared a series of tweets remembering the film and her struggles back then.

The Queen star tweeted, “After almost a decade long struggle I was told I am too good an actor to be a Bollywood leading lady, curly hair and vulnerable voice made it worse, I signed Queen thinking this will never release. Signed it for money with that money I went to film school in New York.” In her next post she wrote, “Bought a small house in the outskirts of LA in Calabasas, just when I left everything, Queen released, changed my life and Indian Cinema forever; marked the birth of a new leading lady and woman centric parallel cinema #7yearsofqueen.”

Kangana also added, “Queen is not just a film for me, it was an explosion of everything I ever deserved (that) was kept away from me for 10 long years. Everything came all at once, it was overwhelming. I truly believe what is ours no one can take away, hang in their you will get your due #7yearsofqueen.”
