Kangana Ranaut has trained her guns on a section of Bollywood, the industry which didn’t back the actress during the release of ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’. The actress has blamed Bollywood for ganging up against her, and not lending any support during her period film’s promotions. “Bollywood is planning and plotting and now one thing is for sure, that I’ll be after them, ‘inki vaat laga dungi’. They have called for trouble by ganging up against me,” threatens Kangana. The ‘Queen’ actress has been at loggerheads with the entertainment industry ever since she sparked the nepotism debate by calling Karan Johar the “torchbearer of nepotism” in Bollywood, for launching several star kids. “They have all gathered together, like a classroom, where everyone is against one, trying to bully that person. How will you feel if someone did that? Aren’t they ashamed? Some of them are my grandfather’s age and are still after me. I don’t even want to work with them and I have said that ample times before,” adds Kangana.
As for her recent release, ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ is going steady at the box office, raking in Rs 84.55 crore in two weeks. But the actress is still upset and angry at having no support from the top rung just before the film’s release, when a fringe group called Rajput Karni Sena threatened to stall her project. “Is Rani of Jhansi my aunt? She’s as much mine as she’s yours. Then why are these people scared? They are worried just because I spoke on nepotism? They have formed a gang. But how will this affect me? I’ve already won three to four National Awards! At the age of 31, I am a filmmaker,” Kangana comes down heavily on her Bollywood colleagues.
