Last year, Kangana Ranaut delivered a huge hit with Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi which not only had her playing the lead role, but also had her taking up the directorial reins of a film for the first time. She will next be seen playing the role of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in her biopic, titled Thalaivi. It's now been announced that apart from Kangana, the film will also mark the comeback of 90s star Bhagyashree to movies. 

Bhagyashree had quit films after she got married to Himalay Dassani, but in our recent interview, she had revealed that she has signed two films - Prabhas' untitled next and Kangana's Thalaivi. When asked about working with Kangana, the Maine Pyaar Kiya actress said, “I had first met Kangana in 2006, when she had just started her career. Even on the set of Thalaivi, she is extremely respectful, and greets me as soon as she reaches the set.”

We also reached out to Kangana who is extremely happy at sharing screen space with Bhagyashree. She shares, "When we met, I had so many questions for her - we all have witnessed her spectacular launch and then she took a sabbatical. She told me so many amazing things about her unusual journey as an artist and in her second innings, she is more content prepared and hungry for good work. I am fortunate and privileged to be working with one of my favourite stars." Both Kangana and Bhagyashree have several scenes together in the biopic, that will trace Jalayalalithaa's journey from being a superstar heroine to the most loved politician.

Seriously the people here who say she is talented should know that she is a good actor. The rest are all the PR stories and talent she pays to get. Who says happy lockdown. If has little common sense you will say stay safe and stay healthy.

Happy lockdown is a popular culture pun usage you dud. It was for social media people who represent less than 2%. We know who pays for PR for their existence. Kangana is a talent that happens once in 100 years. Your late night comments across all Kangana articles show how obsessed you are with her and her Herculean talent! Stop prying and take help from your minders you despo.

Kangana that whatshername comedian salonay was ridiculing you through her posts until around the date of rangoli's twitter account being locked. Now she has "diversified" to also include sonia g and mamta banerji. She immediately posted about ananya panday and got a thumbs up from sonam. She has received endorsement from Farah ali, Swara and Anubhav sinha asked her who writes her scripts? This is not about her or these people. The point is that in showbiz nothing but nothing is spontaneous and everything comes with a budget. Who was paying her to do this? She also had political endorsement from a certain party. Why was she using your personal issues? Is this as innocuous as it seems or its a part of a larger coordinated bullying and PR harassment? Is this not about harassment of women at place of work?

True, here she is giving respect to bhagyashree who possibly had the most iconic debut in last 40 years in bollywood and the narratives of psycho, say positive about others and evil etc are being peddled by PR clans.

Kangana Raunat is greatest actress of Bollywood. Her acting standard is way above the nepo gang. I know Filmfare & Screen deliberately ignored her because she ridiculed them in Aap ki adalat. She is also not in favour of KJO and Filmfare editor Jitesh Pillai who is pissed off by her bold statements how awards were given in exchange of physical attendance at their award show in Assam. Screen awards is like gang of kitty party women who bitchingly ignored her Queen performance just because she refused to attend them.

Wonderful many veteran superstars like waheedaji, ashaji, shatruji, Manoj Kumar ji, rekhaji, big B, sridevi are always full of admiration for Kangana. So bhagyashree ji joins a rather long list. People who have made their mark understand how talented Kangana is, what a huge success story she is and what she is up against (a cocktail of scavenger jealous women, leftist people from UP filmmakers club, male chauvinists, nepo gang)! And off course their PR armies who write crap articles and plant comedians to ridicule her.

This Person who is trying to defend Kangana in every comment is for sure psycho Rangoli or Kangana herself lol. They both are the most negative and judgemental people in the industry who the hell gives you psychos the right to criticise or talk bad about other people smh

Great older women are getting to work in big films. Kangana is a woman’s friend but some jealous women get together with predatory men to pull Kangana down.

Dont worry let the movie promotions starts , her bad mouthing will start again. She can not hold herself back. She feeds on negativity. Bhagyashree is hungry for fame. She is everywhere on insta

When during Panga promotions Richa was seen making faces and sharing rude gestures while Kangana was friendly with her and even praised her a lot. Just an example. Dont just label randomly

The dhanda of scavengers and non-entities around Kangana is seriously hurt when they read something like this. Kangana has always praised work where it was due. When you are only thriving on PR or nepotism (solely) she will call you bull out. She has praised many star kids like kareena, saif, alia, ranbir in the past when it was due.

Finally a good word from this lady. I hope she keeps this positivity about colleagues in the future. Honestly tired of controversies and blaming sagas around her. Her talent is eclipsed by all this negativity and I just hope she focuses on her role and respect others.

Anonymous 3 months ago

That is one illogical created around her. She is the most supportive actress in recent times coz she not only supports her friends but supports her enemies as well when they need like Deepika, Alia, Swara, Taapsee & Richa. The kind of praises she gives to Kareena, Bhumi, Sridevi, Radhika, Sonakshi, Vidya, Mrunal re never reciprocated back

Seriously, this desperate narrative was built around to prop certain pr puppets. They have failed miserably. Kangana has always appreciated talent and work where it is due. You cant be a me too version or a third rate actor to win her praise.

Kangana while I admire you for not kissing up to KJo and his nepo gang, I haven't always agreed with your choice of words used to express valid feelings. I hope you stay humble, respectful, and hardworking. You are intelligent, very talented, and have improved your craft over the years. You deserve good roles. Your voice has been heard, we empathize with your struggle, and are grateful you paved the way for talented newcomers without any backing. My two cents, if you have nothing positive to say, then why say anything at all at this point. You have been heard loudly and clearly. if you have a criticism, express it constructively, openly, and with maturity and class. Do it for your supporters. No need to sound bitter or nasty. Proud of what you had to say about Bagyashree.

Please stop patronizing! We know how jealous some people are of Kangana. She puts them in place. Stop dreaming about rangoli, she does not play tricks like Bollywood’s puppet women and their dumb PR.

She has bad things to say about the whole world who does she think gave her the rights to talk bad about others..Kangana and Rangoli are the most judgemental and self obsessed human beings in the industry with no class. You think nepotism works only in the film industry you psychos its everywhere be it politics, business everywhere. Smh

She mostly has nice things to say about other actresses but that is NEVER reciprocated back She has oj records praised - Deepika, katrina, alia, bhumi, samantha radhika, kareena, vidya, mrunal, taapsee, swara, richa, sonakshi

She always has nice things to say, even to people she had conflicts with like Alia,Deepika,Richa & Swara. She is very intelligent and keeps a subjective perspective and doesnt intermix personal preference when praising someone. Somehow media is busy painting a psycho image of hers who can start fighting randomly for no reason.

Anonymous 3 months ago

She has had many things nice to say about contemporaries who deserve praise. But the other way around has NEVER happened among mainstream top stars. That's why she is a one woman army! She needs no certificate.
