After actress Alia Bhatt stated that she didn’t want to upset Kangana Ranaut and will apologise to her personally, the latter has launched a fresh attack on her. In her recent interaction with Pinkvilla, the Manikarnika actress reportedly stated that she made a phone call to Alia and asked the reason of not supporting her film. Kangana went on to say that if Alia’s existence is just about being Karan Johar’s puppet then she doesn’t consider her successful. Well, she has once again raised eyebrows with her bold statements.
Pinkvilla quoted her saying, “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 supports 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’s (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, Nepo gang life is simply restricted to give and take favours hope she rises above that.”
Earlier, Kangana slammed Aamir Khan and Alia for not showing support for Manikarnika. Reacting to it, the dimpled beauty said, “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.”
On a related note, Alia will next be seen in Gully Boy with Ranveer Singh. The movie is all set to hit the screens on February 14.
