It all started when ‘Queen’ actress Kangana Ranaut made some sensational comments on Nepotism in Bollywood. The first and most prominent incident of discussing Nepotism took place when she appeared in director Karan Johar’s ‘Koffee With Karan’ show. Well, one has no need to say what all she spelled during her recent Rajat Sharma’s interview at ‘Aap Ki Adalat’, the news has spread like wildfire.
The comments she made on Hrithik and other directors is a lit. There is no going back, earlier, she spoke about the same in a couple of interviews. Various Bollywood actors commented about the same and what not? It has been the talk of the town since the day one.
But, what about her new movie ‘Simran’? there is barely a trace of discussion about the movie. None was so far seen talking about this. And this is definitely a flaw for the makers of Simran. The media’s attention has gradually shifted from the movie to the actress’ personal life.
Worried about the movie promotions, according to the sources close to the makers of Simran, the crew were quoted saying, “Simran is up for release, they feel Kangana is taking the limelight away from the film and that people are only interested in knowing about her personal life. They have now asked Kangana to not talk about her personal life anymore and keep her interviews centered to the film.”
Many celebrities went slamming Kangana after acknowledging her statements. Now, the popular filmmaker-choreographer Farah Khan has expressed her opinion about the issue, she claimed that Kangana has been playing women’s card ever since her inception.
Farah in her recent interview, said, “I won’t name anybody and I don’t want to be involved in this but every time you (Kangana) are playing the woman card. I believe feminism is about equality. I always look at these things with a different perspective — swap the woman and the man for their places and then try to understand the issue,” however, she didn’t mention Kangana’s name.
Meanwhile, singer Sona Mohapatra was among the first to slam the actor for what she thought to be a “circus”. In her open letter, she detailed how Bollywood star was guilty of “doing a disservice to feminism” by washing her dirty linen in public and reviving her fight with Hrithik.
