Kangana Ranaut has called out several people in Bollywood, condemning and slamming them for not supporting her movie ,Manikarnika’. She even called out Alia Bhatt for not supporting her movie while she supported Raazi.
When Alia was asked about Kangana’s statement, she reacted positively and said,
“I hope she doesn’t dislike me and I don’t think she dislikes me. I don’t think I have done anything intentionally to upset her. If I have, I will apologise to her on a personal level. But I have always said that I have admired her a lot as an actor and person. She is very outspoken and that takes courage to be that way. I wasn’t aware of this problem or anything, I was busy with the shooting. So yes, what can I say I don’t want to upset anybody.”
However, Kangana reportedly told an entertainment website that she called Alia up and asked her why she was so scared to see her film. She said,
“I reached out to Alia (Bhatt) and asked her what makes her think Manikarnika is my personal controversy, it’s a film whole nation is talking about and wondering why Bollywood is keeping quiet on such a relevant work……I asked her if I can be courteous and gracious to acknowledge her requests for encouraging relevant work that she does, why is she so scared to see my film. I suggested that she grows some spine and support an important film about woman empowerment and nationalism….if she doesn’t have a voice of her own and her existence is all about being KJo (Karan Johar) puppet then I don’t consider her successful… I told her if she is only focusing on earning bucks and not raise a voice, then her success has no value…. hope she understands the true meaning of success and her responsibilities, Napo gang life is simply restricted to give and take favours hope she rises above that.”
Recently, Kangana called out the entire Bollywood fraternity for bullying her and ganging up against her. She said,
“One thing is for sure, I’m not going to spare anyone. Main inki waat laga dungi, ek ek ko expose karungi (I will make their lives hell, and I will expose every single one of them).”
