Kangana Ranaut lashes out Alia Bhatt
February 10, 2019
Kangana Ranaut has lashed out at fellow actor for not supporting her film Manikarnika. In an interview to a film website, Ranaut said Bhatt's "existence is all about being Karan Johar's puppet", and that she should "grow some spine".
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. - Kangana Ranaut, Actress
Ranaut also said that Bhatt should understand the true meaning of success, and that focusing on just earning money, would not make her amount to anything. "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."
Ranaut's statement follows a previous accusation against stars of the Hindi film industry. She had accused them of ganging up against her like a "classroom of kids" because she spoke about nepotism. In response, Bhatt said she "hasn't done anything to intentionally to upset Kangana". She also said she would offer an apology.
Ranaut's statements against the film industry came during a media interaction while promoting her film Manikarnika. "Is the Queen of Jhansi my relative? She is yours as much as she is mine. Then why are these people hesitating? Because I spoke up about nepotism? That scared them?" Ranaut had said Karan Johar was the "flagbearer of nepotism", when she appeared in his chat show in 2016.
