Disney Plus Hotstar got itself into trouble after it promoted five films that will be having direct-to-OTT release on the online streaming platform. The virtual press conference was attended by Ajay Devgn, Alia Bhatt, Abhishek Bachchan, Akshay Kumar and Varun Dhawan. However, Vidyut Jammwal’s Khuda Haafiz and Kunal Kemmu’s Lootcase was left out. Now, Kangana Ranaut has backed Vidyut after his film was snubbed by the streaming platform.

Taking to Twitter, Kangana tweeted, “Such a shame that ill-treatment of outsiders continues even in territories where everyone is new and an outsider.” Not just Kangana, but Genelia Deshmukh also offered her support and wrote, “Every film is made with a lot of love, a lot of sweat & a lot of people giving it their all. Its only fair to want a little respect, its only fair to expect an invitation, its only fair to have at least been intimated.But then, sometimes even life is not fair. keep walking my friend.
