Kangana Ranaut's statements
Kangana Ranaut is clearly upset with Bollywood for not supporting her and praising her work in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. She is upset with Alia Bhatt for not praising her and supporting her in the Manikarnika controversy. 
In an interview with us, the Queen actress said, "I reached out to Alia (Bhatt) and asked her what makes her think Manikarnika is my personal controversy, it’s a film whole nation is talking about and wondering why Bollywood is keeping quiet on such a relevant work...I asked her if I can be courteous and gracious to acknowledge her requests for encouraging relevant work that she does, why is she so scared to see my film. I suggested that she grows some spine and supports an important film about woman empowerment and nationalism...if she doesn’t have a voice of her own and her existence is all about being KJo's (Karan Johar) puppet then I don’t consider her successful...I told her if she is only focusing on earning bucks and not raise a voice, then her success has no value...hope she understands the true meaning of success and her responsibilities, Nepo gang life is simply restricted to give and take favours hope she rises above that."

They’ve been visiting each other’s homes for romantic dinner dates away from the spotlight but now, the cat’s out of the bag," the supposed source told the magazine.

I can’t disclose much about the film, but yes, I have communicated my decision to the makers of the show. Having said that, I will be back on the show whenever I am required. In the earlier season too, the track would change and Komolika would take a break and come back. As of now, I won’t be seen post March."
