The Queen of Jhansi, Kangana Ranaut had expressed her disappointment in an interview saying that nobody in the Hindi film industry supports her or her film while she has always praised their performances and films. She said that most people in the industry behave as if she doesn’t exist. And after the release of the film, a couple of days back in a media interaction she blasted Bollywood for “ganging up” against her.
She had stated, “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 dugi’. I’ll expose each and every one. They have asked for trouble by ganging up against me.”. In another interview, she had singled out Alia Bhatt for sending her Raazi trailer and calling her for the trial but not returning the favour during Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
Now, earlier today, Anupam Kher conducted a session of #AskAnupam on his Twitter account and one of his followers asked him to tweet in support of Kangana. The tweet read, “#AskAnupam nobody from bollywood is supporting Kagana’s Mankarnika movie. Can you please tweet in her support?”
Anupam not only obliged to the request but also called Kangana a “Rockstar” and a “real example of Women Empowerment”. His tweet read, “#KanganaRanaut is a ROCKSTAR. She is brilliant. I applaud her courage and performances. She is also the real example of #WomenEmpowerment.:)”
