Kangana Ranaut always stays in headlines for her statements. Now while a poll was conducted between Alia Bhatt for her role in Gully Boy and Kangana Ranaut for her role in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, to find out the best actress of the year 2019, it was Kangana who won. But guess what she is not happy, in fact, she was “embarrassed” that her name was in competition with Alia. According to Kangana Ranaut, Alia’s performance in Gully Boy was “mediocre.” The actress said,
“I am embarrassed…What is there to beat in Gully Boy performance… Same snappy muh-phat (outspoken) girl… Bollywood’s idea of a fiery girl, woman empowerment and good acting, spare me this embarrassment, please. Media has taken filmy kids love too far… Stop pampering mediocre work or else bar will never be raised.”To let you know, Alia Bhatt, along with Gully Boy’s lead actor Ranveer Singh and director Zoya Akhtar, received critical acclaim for their work worldwide. The team of the film got a standing ovation after it got premiered at the Berlin Film Festival. This is not the first time when Kangana targeted Alia Bhatt. Earlier, she targeted her and her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor for not taking their stand on politics. Kangana does so because Alia Bhatt, daughter of Mahesh Bhatt, is one of Karan Johar’s protegees and Kangana and Karan are staunch enemies. Their rivalry started when Kangana on Karan’s show talked about nepotism and accused Karan of it. This irked him and since then they are not going on with good terms. On the professional front, Alia Bhatt is looking forward to the release of Kalank on April 17 and her next film is Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor. Whereas Kangana Ranaut is busy in the shoot of her upcoming films Panga and Mental Hai Kya.
