Indian movie actor Kangana Ranaut has blamed director Anurag Kashyap for mistreating her after which, Kashyap released a statement saying that he tried to mend things between Tapsee Pannu, another actor involved in the feud, and Kangana, but it did not turn out well.
This whole blame game started after Kangana started to voice her opinions after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The complications and the controversies surrounding the late actor took an ugly turn when nepotism was brought into view and the Queen actor had a lot to say.
In an interview with a news channel, Ranaut said, “I only have to lose here, because tomorrow they (referring to the ‘movie mafia’) will get some 20 needy outsiders like Taapsee Pannu and Swara Bhasker who will say ‘oh only Kangana has a problem with Karan Johar, but we love Karan Johar.’ If you love Karan Johar, why are you both B-grade actresses? You are better looking than Alia Bhatt and Ananya, you both are better actresses, why don’t you get work? Your existence is proof of nepotism. What are you telling me how happy you are with this industry?”
After her claims, Tapsee, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, said, “It’s disheartening to see someone making a mockery out of outsiders and the industry that has given us so much. Imagine the parents whose kids are coming into the industry. What will they think of us? Like we are some nasty evil people sitting here to eat outsiders?”
The cracks between both the actors go way back last year when Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel called Taapsee a “sasti copy” of Kangana on her now-suspended Twitter account. Filmmaker Anurag Kashya, one of the common links between both the actors, also has been tweeting about Ranaut. “I saw Kangana’s interview yesterday. She used to be a very good friend of mine at one time. She used to encourage me by coming to my films. But I do not know this new Kangana. And I just saw this scary interview of hers, which is just after the release of Manikarnika,” he wrote. “Intoxication of success and vigor seduces everyone equally, whether it is insider or outsider. “Learn from me, be like me”, I have never heard this from her before 2015. And since then, it has come to the point that those who are not with me are all mean and sycophantic,” he added.
The point of having this conversation had ended long back and the discussion point of view has been shifted from what it should be. It all started due to the suicide of the 34-year-old actor and now it has turned into a dirty blame game and naming politics within the film industry. If we were to keep all these actors’ remarks aside, there is a lot of craft in them to be appreciated. That is, only until when they value it.
