Actress Kangana Ranaut is gearing up for the release of her upcoming film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. This is known to all that the lady never minces her words and speaks her heart out. As Kangana is busy with the promotions, she has opened up about her contemporaries like Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma and others. The actress stated that she never shied away from praising others but for them Kangana doesn’t exist.

During her interview with News 18, she said, “don’t feel so threatened by anyone around. You know like you see I will praise Alia or I would praise Anushka or I would praise everyone. I never shied away from going to Deepika’s Piku trial. Everyone I have praised in my capacity. Sonakshi’s Lootera I saw and the whole year I praised her. I don’t get threatened. Why don’t I see same sort of…why is everyone like, “Oh, oh, oh she doesn’t exist”? Why is that going on? I exist. My film has crossed millions and millions of views and it is one of the most promising films of this year. So when they pretend I don’t exist…nobody ever talks about my teasers or trailers.”

Kangana further added that when she saw Raazi, she praised it without thinking whose film it was. The actress stated, “I don’t see a film and think, “Oh, this person’s film so maybe I shouldn’t look at that side” or something like that. I don’t feel like that.”

On a related note, Manikarnika also features Atul Kulkarni, Danny Denzongappa, Ankita Lokhande and Zeeshan Ayub among others. It is all set to hit the screens on January 25 and will fight the box office battle with Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Thackeray. Earlier, Hrithik Roshan starrer Super 30 was also scheduled to release on the same date. However, the film has been pushed to July 26 release.
