Kangana Ranaut versus Bollywood: Anupam Kher supports actress in fight against industry

As I have said before, I really admire her as an actor and the choices that she makes.

She claimed that Alia and Aamir didn't support her or her latest film and were unavailable when requested to attend the screening of the period saga.

While Alia later reacted to it saying that she was not aware of the controversy Manikarnika was facing as she was busy shooting, Kangana further attacked her saying that she should not remain Karan Johar's "puppet".

Kangana Ranaut's ' Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi' that is a biographical account on Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi, has been on a winning spree at the box office.


"Tanushree, who is now in the United States, said that 'besides being a powerhouse performer, she has truly set an example of someone who has made a unique and celebrated place for herself in an industry tough to conquer for an outsider.This Damsel has truly made it all the way despite all the distress; leaving the frat boys club of Bollywood and their dames twiddling their thumbs in abject contempt for her success". "Hope she rises above that", said Kangana. While several people from the industry came out in support of the actress, Kangana called out Alia Bhatt in an interview for not taking a stand and supporting her during the controversy. I don't think I have done anything intentionally to upset her.

However, Kangana, upon learning Alia's reaction, came down heavily on her and asked Alia to grow a spine and support a film about women empowerment and nationalism.

She added, "Alia (Bhatt) sent me the trailer of Raazi and said, "Please watch it".

Just recently, the Hotel Mumbai actor held a #AskAnupam session on Twitter, giving fans an opportunity to ask him whatever they want. "Kher quoted the tweet, and wrote, "#KanganaRanaut is a ROCKSTAR. "I hope she doesn't dislike me and I don't think she dislikes me".
