Yesterday Kangana Ranaut sparked a debate yet again, when after getting absolutely no support from Bollywood for her latest release, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, the Queen of the industry was a little agitated, and naturally so. The Tanu Weds Manu actress spoke about the entire industry ganging up against her because of one nepotism comment that she made, almost two years ago and said, “How will it benefit me? I’ve already won 3-4 national awards. At the age of 31, I am a filmmaker. Khud ko hi promote kar le bohot badi baat hai (it would be a big deal if they can promote themselves).”
“Is Rani of Jhansi my aunt? She’s as much mine as she’s yours. Then why are these people scared? They are worried just because I spoke on nepotism? They have formed a gang: ‘Why did she speak on nepotism?” Ranaut added.
Ranaut went on the add, “They have all gathered together, like a classroom where 59 have ganged up against one, trying to bully one. How will you feel if someone did that? Aren’t they ashamed? Some of them are my grandfather’s age. They are after me. Don’t they feel ashamed that it’s not about me. I don’t even want to work with them and I’ve said that often.
“What Bollywood is doing, the planning and plotting, one thing is for sure, earlier I used to call them out for sexism, nepotism or pay disparity, but now I’ll be after them. ‘Inki vaat laga dungi’. I’ll expose each and every one. They have asked for trouble by ganging up against me,” she concluded.
