Kangana Ranaut has unapologetically bashed B’Town members time and again. The actress has used her voice to call out nepotism, and the ‘movie mafia’ in the Industry. Recently, she opened up about how Sushant Singh Rajput has been affected by favouritism and groupism. She yet again targeted Taapsee Pannu saying outsiders like her often support Karan Johar.
But looks like Taapsee Pannu is in no mood to deal with her all over again. For the unversed, last time, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel went on to call the Badla actress a ‘sasti copy’ of her sister. This time, Ranaut is back at hitting her contemporary with some harsh words.
In a recent conversation with Republic TV, while talking about Sushant Singh Rajput row, Kangana Ranaut had said, “For me, I have only to lose here (in Bollywood) because I know tomorrow they (movie mafia gangs) will get some 20 needy outsiders like Taapsee Pannu and Swara Bhasker, who will get up and say, ‘Oh, only Kangana has problem with nepotism, but we love Karan Johar’. If you love Karan Johar, why you both are B-grade actresses? You are better looking than Alia Bhatt and Ananya Panday. You both are better actresses. Why don’t you get work? Your whole existence is a proof of nepotism. What are you telling me that how happy you are with the industry? So, I know this happen and the whole system will make me look like a mad person.”
Talking about the statement, Taapsee Pannu now has a befitting reply. Furthermore, she has accused Kangana Ranaut of taking advantage of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
While talking to Hindustan Times, Taapsee shared, “I refuse to be bitter. I refuse to take advantage of someone’s death for personal vendetta and I refuse to make mockery out of the industry that gave me bread and identity. As an actor who wants to speak up and address important issues that have happened with me which can help empower others, I did speak up when I was wrongfully replaced in Pati Patni Aur Woh. I called out a wrong practice and had the director of the film supporting me then. Yes, I’ve been dropped out of films and replaced with star kids but the fact that Kangana and her sister (Rangoli Chandel) try to discredit me and my hard work, call me names, put wrong allegations on me, is actually an equal level of harassment, if not more. ”
Taapsee Pannu also shared her views on Karan Johar statement. “I never mentioned anywhere I like Karan Johar or anyone she alleges, but I have never said I hate them either. So, the fact that you don’t hate someone she hates, is equivalent to ‘you like that person and you suck up to that person’? I don’t even know him behind the formal ‘hi, hello, thank you’. How is this even logical?”, she added.
The actress went on to share that she refuses to see Kangana Ranaut as the “flag bearer of nepotism.”
