Kangana Ranaut knows how to stay relevant in the news even after several media bodies up and down the country decided to boycott her. The Queen actress was at her witty best when she decided to launch stunning attacks on filmmaker Karan Johar and actor Ranbir Kapoor. Her attack on Ranbir came weeks after Kangana was embroiled in a public spat with the former’s friend Alia Bhatt and her mother Soni Razdan.
Kangana was a guest on The Kapil Sharma Show, when the comedian asked her to name her choice of people who would make the best cabinet ministers if she was to be the Prime Minister of Bollywood. She used the opportunity to launch extraordinary attacks against Karan and Ranbir. She said that Karan would make the best Information and Broadcasting Minister since he loved gossiping about others.
She said, “That has to be Karan Johar because he likes to gossip about others. He has made a special show (Koffee With Karan) for that purpose. On that show, he often asks questions about colour of people’s underwear and what they would do when they woke up in someone else’s bed.”
She then turned her focus to Ranbir, who she said would make the best Defence Minister in her cabinet. That’s because the Sanju star allegedly had ‘an underground social media team, who fights for him even without him coming out in the open.’
In April this year, Kangana had launched a tirade against Alia Bhatt by expressing her disgust over a comparison being drawn between her and the Gully Boy actress. This was after an entertainment website carried out a poll asking Bollywood fans to vote for the best performance by a female actor in 2019. Kangana polled 37% votes for her performance in Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, while Alia was close behind with 33% votes.
When Alia was told about Kangana’s rude comments about her, the young actress stunned everyone by reacting with incredible calmness and composure. She had told the Bollywood Hungama website, “I respect Kangana’s work a lot and I respect her opinion. If she feels a particular way she must have reason to feel that way. I would rather remember how much she had praised me after watching Raazi. And I’d just like to focus on my work. Maybe she will appreciate me again if I work hard enough.”
This was not the first time that Kangana had made attempts to rub Alia up the wrong way for no fault of hers. Kangana had earlier hit out at Alia and her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor for being apolitical and not voicing their opinions on contentious politics and social issues.
Alia’s mother Soni Razdan too had to face a series of personal attacks from Kangana and her motormouth sister Rangoli Chandel.
