Looking ahead to the social media journey, the 'Panga' actor asked her fans for support as it'd be a "beginning of a new relationship".
Actress Kangana Ranaut, who has been notably absent from social media ever since she made her Bollywood debut, took to Twitter on Friday to announce her arrival on the micro-blogging site.

"This is for my twitter family," wrote Kangana's team on Twitter as they shared a video in which she talked about her social media debut.



In the one-minute forty-three second video posted on her Twitter account, Ranaut dwelved deep into the reasons behind her joining the social media platforms, despite being absent from them for a considerable number of years.

In the video, Kangana said, "Hello friends, I have been working in films from almost last 15 years, and during all this time... I was pressurised many times to join social media and I have declined a lot many deals wherein the only clause was to join social media, and I had let them go. People have been saying things about me because I wasn't there on social media... even then I didn't join it..."

Talking about her reasons to not join social media, Ranaut said that she never felt a distance from her audience and that she had sent the messages of 'women empowerment' and 'nationalism' in an artistic way through her films.

"This year, I have seen the power of social media, and I observed that how the whole world has come together in the fight for Sushant, and we have gained success... All this has given me a lot of hope, and I have an aspiration that through this we can launch reforms for new India... and that is the reason for the first time I have come on Twitter...," she added.

Actress Kangana Ranaut is used to making news, be it for winning a National Award, creating waves at the box office, or even for her personal life. The actress is known to not mince her words, even if it means things not always working in her favour. While Ranaut doesn’t shy away from commenting on issues she feels strongly about, recently the ‘Manikarnika’ actress has been receiving flak from a section of the media.

However, it’s not just Ranaut’s statements that have come under scrutiny, but also that of her sister and manager, Rangoli Chandel. Chandel’s tweets often slamming anyone and everyone in Bollywood, have received criticism. Several fans have even taken to the microblogging site to say that Rangoli, whose Twitter bio reads 'Manager & Sister to #KanganaRanaut' may be harming the 'Queen' star's image and overshadowing her work. some have even requested the actress to hire a professional publicist.

But Kangana isn't the first celebrity to be managed by a family member. Several others have also taken the family route when it comes to professional matters.

Queen Bey and her father-manager Mathew Knowles's fallout was the stuff of headlines. While the 67-year-old now claims that he shares a good relationship with both his daughters, Beyoncé and Solange, after having learnt to switch from manager to father, it wasn't always the case. Mathew not only managed 'Destiny's Child' but reportedly also trained three members to sing.

Mathew was around right from the beginning of Beyoncé's career, until over a decade later when on March 28 in 2011 the 'Sorry' singer announced that the duo were going their separate ways, and the decision was mutual.

Since the split, the singer has been managed by her own company, Parkwood Entertainment.
