While everybody admires Kangana Ranaut for making it big without any godfather in the industry, for speaking her mind (on various topics), and refusing to buckle against the powerful people in the industry, it seems of late she is rubbing a lot of people the wrong way without any reason.
And she seems to be having a particular fascination for the star kids, especially Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt.
In a poll conducted by BollywoodLife for the best actress for 2019, Kangana Ranaut (for her role in Manikarnika) beat Alia Bhatt (for Gully Boy). Speaking to the portal about the result, Kangana said that she felt “embarrassed” that she was pitted against Alia as her performance in Gully Boy was “mediocre.”
“I am embarrassed…What is there to beat in Gully Boy performance… Same snappy muh-phat (outspoken) girl… Bollywood’s idea of a fiery girl, woman empowerment and good acting, spare me this embarrassment, please. Media has taken filmy kids love too far… Stop pampering mediocre work or else bar will never be raised,” Kangana told BollywoodLife.
Its a known fact that Kangana Ranaut dislikes Karan Johar for encouraging nepotism in Bollywood. Alia Bhatt, daughter of Mahesh Bhatt, happens to be is one of Karan Johar’s protegees, and of late Kangana has been passing comments about Alia too.
Earlier, Kangana had told Pinkvilla that Alia Bhatt “grows some spine” and supports films about woman empowerment and nationalism. “I hope she understands the true meaning of success and her responsibilities… nepotism gang life is simply restricted to giving and taking favours, hope she rises above that.”
Kangana Ranaut had also called Ranbir Kapoor “irresponsible” for not talking about Indian politics. (Alia Bhatt is reportedly dating Ranbir).
Back then, Alia had replied saying “I definitely don’t have the ability to speak as candidly as Kangana does, and I really do respect her for that and may be in a way she is right. Sometimes we do hold back.”
Well, it seems Kangana is becoming a reel without a cause, or is it that she is really gettin gunder the skin of her character for her upcoming film ‘Mental Hai Kya’?
