Kangana Ranaut and Alia Bhatt's cold war takes another direction. 'Manikarnika' actress hits out at Alia's performance in 'Gully Boy' by saying that she is embarassed that Alia is receiving all the praise and accolades for her performance in the film.
According to the reports, Kangana in an interview said: "I am embarrassed...What is there to beat in Gully Boy performance ....same snappy muh phat girl... Bollywood’s idea of a fiery girl, woman empowerment and good acting, spare me this embarrassment, please. Media has taken filmy kids love too far...stop pampering mediocre work or else bar will never be raised."
This is not the first time Kangana Ranaut has attacked Alia Bhatt. Recently, she lashed out against the actress saying she didn't support her film 'Manikarnika'. Kangana told the entertainment website and said: “I reached out to Alia (Bhatt) 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......"
She further called Alia Karan Johar's puppet and said: "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 support 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 (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, Napo gang life is simply restricted to give and take favours hope she rises above that.”
Later, at an event Alia Bhatt responded to her allegations and said: “I would like to react to her personally if she has any complaints. I don’t want to talk about it in the media. As I have said before, I really admire her as an actor and the choices that she makes. She’s a very outspoken person and I admire her for that as well. If I have upset her unintentionally, then I don’t know. Basically, it wasn’t my intention. I didn’t do anything to get a reaction like this."
This wasn't it. Kangana also attacked Alia's rumoured boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor for not speaking up on national issues. To this, Alia said: "I definitely don't have the ability to speak as candidly as Kangana does, and I really do respect her for that and may be in a way she is right. Sometimes we do hold back," reports news agency PTI.
