Queen of Bollywood is an outspoken actress in the film industry. She always speak what she believes and creates controversy. In yet another incident, Kangana Ranaut called Alia Bhatt's performance in Gully Boy, a mediocre performance.
Kangana Ranaut made the statement after a tabloid had run a poll lately and asked the fans to vote for the best performance by a female actor in 2019 so far. In the poll, Kangana won with 37% votes for her last release 'Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi' while Alia stood second with 33% votes for Gully Boy.
When Kangana was asked about the poll result, she said, "I am embarrassed...What is there to defeat in Gully Boy performance ....same snappy muh phat girl... Bollywood’s idea of a fiery girl, woman empowerment and good acting, spare me this embarrassment, please. Media have taken filmy kids love too far. Stop pampering mediocre work or else bar will never be raised.”
It seems the Queen actress has a hatred for Alia who is a nepo kid. She had attacked Alia before too. She had blamed Alia for asking her to attend the premieres of their films and boycotting the screening of her films. She also slammed her for not voicing her opinion.
Alia responded to this, “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."
As per a report, Kangana had made a phone call to Alia and told her to grow a spine, “I reached out to Alia 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,” Kangana added.
