Kangana Ranaut is currently enjoying the success of her directorial debut Manikarnika. Four times national award winner is also known to be one of the few people in Bollywood that never shy away from saying what they have on their mind.
Despite Manikarnika doing exceptionally well at the box office, the entire Bollywood has singled out Kangna and no one has come out to say even a word about the movie. Recently when Alia was asked about Manikarnika too she took a diplomatic route 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.”
When a leading daily told Kangana about Alia’s statement, this is what the Manikarnika actress had to say, “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 supports 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 Karan Johar’s 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, Nepotism gang life is simply restricted to give and take favours hope she rises above that.”
Well we do think that it is high time that Bollywood comes out its petty gangs and supports cinema in its true sense and movies such as Manikarnika that are all about patriotism and women empowerment are celebrated though out and not just by a few individuals.
