After actor Anupam Kher, Tanushree Dutta has openly supported Kangana Ranaut for fearlessly shouldering a big-budget Hindi film and fighting all who stood against her in the making of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. In her open letter to Kangana, Tanushree has written that Bollywood isn’t showing any sympathy for Kangana because most of them are ‘intimidated ‘ by her talent. She has also praised Kangana for standing alone and finding her own path of success without being in the good books of the industry people.

Here’s what Tanushree has said, “Kangana Ranaut is a bonafide A++ list actress. Why the extra plus? Because she is the only one who made it to the top of her game in Bollywood without the nagging support and recommendation of A- list male stars, without a high profile surname or an unrealistically perfect, pure and pious facade that most Bollywood actresses seem to wear on and off screen. 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. Kangana, they don’t support you because they are intimidated by your talent, they hate your guts and their brawny thick muscle brains can’t seem to figure out for the love of sweet bejesus how on earth you made it this far without them!! They think they are Gods and it’s blasphemy to acknowledge that you shouldered a multimillion-dollar film on your own. With Manikarnika’s success, you have hit them on their softest spot and it will take them some time to recover. They will come around eventually…they have to or else they run the risk of being irrelevant.”

She added, “I haven’t seen the film yet but my friends in the US recommended me to watch it asap so, perhaps, I will soon. My parents saw it on opening week and they are all praises, especially for your performance in it. Keep up the good work and keep being you!!

Love,
Tanushree Dutta”

Earlier, when asked what does he think about Bollywood visibly avoiding to talk about Kangana and her films, Anupam Kher called the actress the real meaning of women empowerment. In his tweet, he said, “#KanganaRanaut is a ROCKSTAR. She is brilliant. I applaud her courage and performances. She is also the real example of #WomenEmpowerment.:)” (sic)

Meanwhile, Kangana has called out Bollywood’s hypocrisy in not promoting her films. In her statement recently, she took Alia Bhatt‘s name and said that she went all out to promote Raazi while Alia never took pains in promoting Manikarnika let alone supporting her in the controversy that erupted during the release of the film.
