After a no-holds-barred interview with Pinkvilla on what she alleges to be ‘Movie Mafia’ and ‘Suicide Gang’ of Bollywood, Kangana Ranaut has been constantly been putting forth her views on the untimely death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. The Manikarnika director and actress has in fact fuelled a heated debate on nepotism once again and has received both brickbats and support from people and celebrities.

Though her tryst with controversial subjects such as nepotism is not new, the subject has never before caused a clamour and uproar of this degree. Kangana has always been blunt talking about rampant nepotism and professional bullying in Bollywood which is focused on demoralising ‘outsiders’.  

Actor and TV host Simi Garewal recently took to social media and wrote how Kangana was braver and bolder than her (Simi). On the other spectrum, Bollywood celebs like Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhaskar shared their reactions on social media after Kangana took a shot at them during one of her interviews for underplaying nepotism.

Kangana has always been vocal about her disappointment with the industry on the nepotism debate. Rebutting the satirical comments and jibes by the fellow actors, Kangana said, “It is so sad. I do not know what to say because I have been in their place. People who come from outside, I have said it in my earlier interviews as well, we [outsiders] do not have the comfort of our parents' houses. I am not Anil Kapoor or Mahesh Bhatt's daughter. Or when you talk about Swara Bhaskar, Taapsee Pannu or Richa Chadda, I understand they have bills to pay for their house; everybody is not and doesn’t want to live the kind of life I aspire. So, I do understand where they're coming from and there are a lot of pressures. People are very bothered about their own personal gains.”

In the last few weeks, while Kangana has gained support, she has also been subjected to allegations that she is minting an opportunity to settle scores. Refuting the allegations and calling them as baseless and tasteless, the actress says, “What will I gain? I will not gain films for sure. I will not gain brand endorsements. I will not gain any money. The only thing I will gain is more enemies. So, while I understand that others may not have my inclination to gain enemies, what I expect from them is just to give respect to other people’s struggle.”

“Taapsee said I've had weird experiences in life. I have had weird experiences in life. I'm a weirdo? They say I'm an extremist and jobless person. Swara said that my claims of nepotism are fake. Richa says that people are not giving positive vibrations to the universe. Yes, of course, right now the last thing I want to give out is positive vibrations to the universe when we have lost the life of a very significant person. He wasn't just another life. We don't feel very positive about things around. It’s true! But to completely disregard my struggles, is another thing,” she adds.

Kangana claims that she is still facing an onslaught of insinuations and fake stories – something, which she believes Sushant also endured. “It's out there for people to see the kinds of media reports and the cases put on me. Even the interview that Karan Johar gave in London, is there for everyone to see. You cannot turn a blind eye and state I haven’t been through this. What did they do to Sushant? Sushant is on record stating Bollywood will kick him out. You cannot just claim it was his schizophrenia,” says Kangana.

“Sameer Soni went on TV and said that Sushant was a Bipolar patient. Sushant’s psychiatrist never said it. They are making fake claims for some petty gains. I have nothing against that. I do understand that people have families to take care of, people have their own personal ambitions. But just simply don't disregard or discredit another person's struggle,” adds the actress.

Urging people to not disregard the struggles of individuals to survive in the industry, she says, “With folded hands that's my only request to people who are struggling in the film industry; please let us be. Not everyone is Kangana Ranaut or Sushant Singh Rajput but there are people like us in the industry. Every outsider is not the same.”

“Their struggles and personalities are not the same. So, there is no point in comparing struggles. I'm only talking about Sushant and myself. Please stop having this big aandolan [protest] against me just because you are not side-lined. You might not be but there are other people who have been. Let’s agree to disagree! Otherwise, again the movement against nepotism will have no impact. Failure of such a huge movement will lead to more despair in people who are in similar situations like Sushant was -- and what I am still going through. Please understand that people are still fighting for their lives and survival. Be kind and please let them be,” she concludes.

Why only for stars? because he was well known and had a connection with public and everyone can see it was murder and police doctors servants are being bribed. Seems to me this lady on her own is doing more than Sushants entire family and all of Bollywood to press his case. And if it hit a nerve with her personally, his being bullied and shut out, so bloody what.

Very hard for an outsider ! A change is needed for the real talent ! Sometimes I just compare two outsiders Amyra Dastur and Disha Patani who made Ku Fu Yoga movie. It was more easy for Disha to get movies with the support of Tiger Schroff family ! I will never believe than Tiger didn’t help her and Disha is lying when she said she has not a godfather in the industry ! And for sure her body show helped her to get attention ! Silly artists of Bollywood time ! Amyra Dastur who can act far better than Disha is still struggling to make a mark in Bollywood and she has only 2 millions followers on Instagram ! What does it mean for an outsider ? If you don’t have connections with nepo or a godfather Salman for Katrina it will be hard to get roles and movies even you are talented ! Honestly things need to change in Bollywood ! Because it’s so sad than artists are recognized by a family name, having flop movies and getting movies again ! People who are ruling in Bollywood are raptors they despise everything that does not look like them ! Pv post it Please ! Thanks

Anyone who has seen into the eyes of devils', faced their wrath, fought way back from the dark well she/he was thrown into...would behave exactly how KR did. The story about her hurt & struggle goes thru the path of those who put her in that position and she relates to sushant path but WHY is voicing that = vendetta?

Anonymous 4 months ago

o yes..actually i have seen children going thru much worse than this...& they do come out better than KR. again not necessary everyone's reaction towards their sufferings is same. some tend to become abusive too like her. so that is when counselling is required. to get hold of your negative emotions. she went to national platform with it not her backyard hurling abuses. support her but also correct her so that she can learn too. is anyone perfect in world?? neither is she.

She is milking publicity from the death of SSR. She never spoke about him or did any professional work with him when he was alive. Why? Now suddenly she is showing sympathy for him. It shows how hollow and fake she is. She thinks she is the greatest person. She is actually a delusional maniac. And it is better to be a B Grade actor than be a C Grade person.

Do you think she has that psychological condition owing to your medical degree in psychology or do you know of the doctor who diagnosed her? Or is it based on your perception from her public interviews and articles on her that you have this judgement on her assuming you don't have a psychology degree?

It needs more than guts to speak truth and Kangana has all of that. No one dares to say anything even indirectly but Kangana said things with confidence, she did not go round and round and one will feel confident automatically if they are speaking truth. Looks like Tapsee & other actresses misunderstood her, I think they should listen again to what she said about them and do not dilute the fight against wrong. Special people are born time to time to save dharma and I am confident that she is that special person to save truth. We people support you Kangana and please take care. It’s not going to be a easy battle but people are with you. Thank you Kangana

I support investigation into Sushants death and into the issue of nepotism. But kangana is not the right person to do so as she is morally flawed and she herself cuts off roles of new comers in her own movies. She has had problems with sonu sood, misti, lisa haydon and also with the director of Manikarnika where she cut off other actors part and in other movies too. When will people realise that even though she is saying all the right things she is not practising them herself.
