Kangana Ranaut, as talented an actor she is, is constantly enmeshed with controversies. One such ongoing back and forth controversy is about her recent film, Manikarnika. Despite seeing a success in the box office, the movie has had divided opinions during the filming and eventually its release of the film. With many outpours of support from several people from the industry, Kangana took notice of Alia Bhatt choosing to keep silent amidst the controversy. In a recent interview, Kangana called out the Raazi star for not taking a stand and supporting her during the controversy.
Although Alia Bhatt is reported to have apologised to Kangana and hopes the actress doesn’t hold it against her, Kangana however, struck the actor back with a response, by calling her “Karan Johar’s puppet”.
Alia, who had chosen to keep calm on the comment initially have reacted to the comment, she said, “I would like to react to her personally if she has any complaints. I don’t want to talk about it in the media. As I have said before, I really admire her as an actor and the choices that she makes. She’s a very outspoken person and I admire her for that as well. If I have upset her unintentionally, then I don’t know. Basically, it wasn’t my intention. I didn’t do anything to get a reaction like this.”
Alia Bhatt meanwhile is currently in Berlin for the world premiere of her next film, Gully Boy with Ranveer Singh that will release in India this Valentine’s Day.
