Alia Bhatt responds to Kangana’s statement on Ranbir Kapoor; details inside
Kangana Ranaut never holds back in supporting as well as criticising her co-stars. Therefore, she is known as the controversial Queen and always remains in the spotlight for her bindaas-bol attitude. She is currently riding high on the success of her last release ‘Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi’ which earned over Rs. 100 crore at the box-office. Recently, the actress slammed Ranbir Kapoor for not taking a stance for the country or not participating in political conversations.
Taking a dig at Ranbir, Kangana called him selfish and further advised him to think about his country as his home. However, not just Ranbir, the ‘Manikarnika’ actress also called members of the film fraternity who have kept tight-lipped over political conversations.
Now, Ranbir Kapoor’s girlfriend and Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt has reacted on Kangana’s statement. On being asked about Kangana’s comments on Ranbir, Alia said, “Listen, I definitely don’t have the ability to speak as candidly as Kangana does and I really really respect her for that. And may be in a way she is right that sometimes we do hold back. Kyunki hum nahi chahte ke, khamakha kyun bolna. My dad always says that there are already so many opinions in the world that the world could do with one less opinion. So, I have an opinion but I will keep it to myself. But kudos to her because she genuinely speaks really well.”
Interestingly, this is not the first time when Alia Bhatt responded to Kangana Ranaut. Previously, Kangana had called Alia as Karan Johar’s puppet. Responding to this, Alia had said that she doesn’t wish to give any explanation over the comments in the media and insisted that she hadn’t done anything to deserve such harsh words.
On the work front, Alia is currently busy shooting ‘Brahmastra’ along with Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna Akkineni. Directed by Ayan Mukerji, ‘Brahmastra’ will hit the theatres in December 2019.
