Zoya Akhtar on Kangana Ranaut’s statements of Bollywood not supporting her: I don’t understand her accusations

Queen actress Kangana Ranaut stirred controversy recently over her statement on how Bollywood never stood up for her. The actress, who is currently riding high on the success of her recently released film Manikarnika, spoke to Pinkvilla about how nobody supported her work. The Tanu Weds Manu actress named Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt as well for how even they didn't praise her film Manikarnika. Recently, Gully Boy director Zoya Akhtar in a conversation with us spoke about the controversy. 

Kangana spoke about how her contemporaries have sent her trailers of their upcoming films but when it was about her film's release, nobody spoke. Zoya, in an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, reacted to Kangana's comment on B-town celebs not being for her during the release of her films. The Gully Boy director said, "Of course people appreciate her work...I don't understand her accusations, I'm sorry." 

In an EXCLUSIVE interview with Pinkvilla, Kangana Ranaut had said, "In 2014, I don't think all the accolades were for me, it was for Phantom who was coming up and there were having screenings after screenings for people of Vikas and Anurag Kashyap. They had a lot of friends, so they used to come. I have always been absolutely ignored. After Tanu Weds Manu also I have had so many trials, they would just not come. But when it comes to them, they call me shamelessly, I even sort of cancel my shoots and make sure I attend them. Now, I have stopped because it's getting too much."
