‘Nobody talks about my teasers, trailers’
KANGANA Ranaut has never shied away from speaking her mind, even it means rubbing the high and mighty of Bollywood the wrong way. Her muchpublicised fights have been the subject of innumerable gossip columns.
Now, Kangana hit out at Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Sonakshi Sinha and other actresses for giving her the cold shoulder. In an interview with a leading publication, she said that while she showers praise on her contemporaries for delivering great performances, they choose to ignore her existence.
“I don’t feel so threatened by anyone around. You know, like, you see I will praise Alia or I would praise Anushka or I would praise everyone. I never shied away from going to Deepika’s Piku trial. Everyone I have praised in my capacity. Sonakshi’s Lootera I saw and the whole year I praised her. I don’t get threatened,” she said.
“Why don’t I see same sort of...why is everyone like, ‘Oh, oh, oh she doesn’t exist?” Why is that going on? I exist. My film has crossed millions and millions of views and it is one of the most promising films of this year. So when they pretend I don't exist...nobody ever talks about my teasers or trailers,” the Queen actress added.
One should acknowledge good work, says Kangana
Kangana said that while it is not necessary to “come out of each other’s a**”, one should acknowledge good work. “When I saw Raazi, I praised it. I didn’t think whose film it is. It is a film. That is it. It doesn’t belong to an individual, it belongs to a society. I don’t see a film and think, ‘Oh, this person’s film so maybe I shouldn’t look at that side’ or something like that. I don’t feel like that,” she said.
Currently, Kangana is awaiting the release of her ambitious period drama, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, in which she will portray famed warrior queen Rani Laxmibai. The film, which marks the debut of television actress Ankita Lokhande, will hit the theatres on January 25.
