I didn’t do anything to get a reaction like this: Alia
Kangana Ranaut, who is known to never mince her words, recently spoke about how the industry and the stars have alienated her. Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt found themselves on the other end of the crossfire when the Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi actress complained that the two stars have been unresponsive to her repeated calls and requests. She claimed that Alia and Aamir didn’t support her or her latest film and were unavailable when requested to attend the screening of the period saga. While Alia had apologised to Kangana, the Queen actress fired another fresh salvo at the Raazi heroine. “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,” she reportedly said.
When we met Alia and quizzed her about the same, she seemed puzzled. On coaxing her, she finally told us, “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.”
