Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt’s last two releases Raazi and Gully Boy worked well on the box office and were critically acclaimed too. However, Kangana Ranaut whose last release Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi didn’t perform well on the box office.
Recently, in an interview Kangana made a comment on Alia’s work by saying that, “I am embarrassed…What is there to beat 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.”
Now, Alia Bhatt reacted to Kangana’s comment, “I respect Kangana’s work a lot and I respect her opinion. If she feels a particular way she must have reason to feel that way. I would rather remember how much she had praised me after watching Raazi. And I’d just like to focus on my work. Maybe she will appreciate me again if I work hard enough.”
It is not the first time when Kangana outbursted on Alia. Earlier too she alleged that Alia didn’t reciprocate her gesture and help promote Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Kangana had said that “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.”
Alia responded on this comment by saying that “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,” she had said.
On the work front, Kangana has made an announcement of her second directorial film. It will be an action film related to a true event. While, Alia will be seen in Kalank and then in Brahmastra.
