Kangana Ranaut made headlines lately with her controversial comments on her relationship with Hrithik Roshan and Aditya Pancholi. Not only did she divulge details of her legal battle with Hrithik she also spoke in great length about her abusive relationship with Pancholi when she was 17. She let out personal details about her relationship with the two and was subjected to serious allegations that she was doing all this ahead of the release of her upcoming film, Simran that is slated to release tomorrow ie September 15. When her video with AIB hit the digital space and went viral, many like Karan Johar and Ekta Kapoor indirectly took a jibe at her. However, if there is one person is all praises for her, it’s none other than her Rangoon director, Vishal Bhardwaj.

The actress was undergoing great turmoil in her life, owing to the legal battle with Hrithik Roshan, during the shoot of Rangoon. In an interview with a leading daily, Bhardwaj spoke in great detail about his experience with Kangana who he describes as a strong and professional actor. He said, “Kangana is a very professional girl. And, maybe this is the right time to talk about it. When their (Kangana and Hrithik) personal conflict was going on, if it was any other actor, they would have stopped shooting for the film in the middle stating that they need to fix their mental state. Whereas Kangana was strong, even when the media was writing something or the other controversial about her every day and night. She would come for the shoot and once she was in front of the camera, she was totally into the character she was playing.”  (ALSO READ: Simran Review: Kangana Ranaut’s Performance Stands Out Yet Again In This Film)

The Maqbool director came out in full support of his Rangoon leading lady. He said that the time when they were shooting for the film was an extremely tough phase for Kangana but she never let it affect the shooting of the film. He lauded her professionalism by saying, “After (the shoot)what she used to do, I don’t know because we all were also busy with the film. But I know for a fact that it was a tough time for her. She was absolutely professional, and not even one day has she asked to stop the shooting for the film. We were shooting in the interiors of the country. So, we were totally cut off from the world, and would read the news on our phones only.”

In her journey of making several enemies in the film industry, looks like she has indeed found a supporter in Vishal Bhardwaj, apart from her sister, of course, who has been picking fights on behalf of her with anyone who says anything against the Simran actor. We wonder what Kangana will have to say about this?
