I didn’t do any­thing to get a re­ac­tion like this: Alia

DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - SCREEN -

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.”
