Yet another time, Kangana Ranaut tries to create a buzz with her cheeky remarks. Her recent appearance on KJo’s ‘Koffee with Karan’ stirred a lot of controversies and yeah, our Himachali Queen is again in the news by playing the victim card again!
She accused her diligent host KJo as the “Flag Bearer of Nepotism” and also remarked that in her biography he would be the ‘stereotypical big Bollywood snooty who is intolerant to outsiders.’
Karan Johar might have apologized towards the end of the show for all the accusations upholding the tag of a Great Host. The grudge didn’t die down, after weeks during a session with Anupama Chopra at LSE, the Ae Dil Hai Mushkil director, opened his heart about the nepotism remark.
As a guest, he had to hear what she had to say and he said, “You cannot play a victim every time with some sad story to tell. If the industry is that bad, just leave it.” He also added that he was tired of Kangana playing the victim card.
And so are we!
The Himachali Queen has an old nasty habit of playing the victim card all the time, her favourite tool of gaining paparazzi attention. Her movies aren’t that popular as her remarks in media. (The last time her acting got recognition was for Tanu weds Manu Returns!). Are these ways of getting media popularity for herself as the icon or to get some media coverage for movies?
Maybe Yes, Maybe No!
But Kangana always pulls out an interrogative opinion leading nowhere! Her feminism quotient or the ‘I don’t care, What’s wrong with Bollywood attitude’ is like a kid throwing tantrums
There is a difference in being outspoken and big mouthed. And Kangana is our very own Big-Mouthed Style Diva.
She mocks the Bollywood for almost everything it does. From Bollywood stars moving to Hollywood; Star Kids getting more attention than her; Shahid Kapoor not being a good co-actor (Even Kareena Kapoor begs to differ on that!), Kangana has a problem with everything.
Her morale booster?
Media publishing her statements as “Strong statements by Bollywood Queen” validating the idea of ‘woman’ and ‘victim’. Such statements, in reality, are her insecurities that she projects in big bold letters.
Our Advice: “Dear Kangana, let your work speak for itself. You can bash other people without playing the victim card.”
