Anurag Kashyap has taken to Twitter to share his thoughts on Kangana Ranaut's recent explosive interview in a series of tweets. The 'Queen' actress had spoken her mind on Sushant Singh Rajput's tragic demise as well as accused Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra of 'systematically sabotaging' the late actor's career. While she was at it, Kangana also took digs at Alia Bhatt, Taapsee Pannu and Swara Bhasker calling the latter two 'B grade actresses'. Reacting to this, Anurag called Kangana's interview 'scary'. 

The filmmaker said that if the actress' close family and friends cannot see what she is doing, then Kangana probably does not have anyone by her side. Tweeting in Hindi, Anurag also added that while Kangana was a good friend of his at one point in time, he does not know this 'new' Kangana. 

He tweeted, “I saw Kangana’s interview yesterday. She used to be a very good friend of mine at one time. She used to encourage me by coming for my films. But I do not know this new Kangana. And I just saw this scary interview of hers, which is just after the release of Manikarnika,” sharing an old clip of Kangana's video clip at Mumbai airport. 

Anurag also added that power of fame and success equally affects everyone, be it an outsider or insider. He said that before 2015 he had never heard Kangana say things like, "Learn from me, be like me," and since then to now, everyone who does not side with Kangana is mean and a sycophant. 

He went on to write, “The one who abuses all her directors, who sits in the edit and cuts the roles of all the co-stars. With whom any of her old directors, who used to admire Kangana, shy away from working with her. This power which Kangana feels has earned, to suppress others...” 

“By not showing the mirror to that Kangana, you are finishing her by making her sit on your head. I have nothing more to say. What the hell is she doing? She is talking nonsense. All will end here. And since I adored her a lot, I am not able to tolerate this Kangana. Others may speak or remain silent..." 

Anurag concluded by addressing Kangana and said, "The rest is your wish, whatever you want to abuse me, keep going."

Kangana removed outsider Sonu sood from Manikarnika after 45 days of shoot. She removed outsider director Krish who shot 70% of the film. She is insulting outsiders like Tapsee & Swara on national TV But she claims that she is fighting for outsiders. LOL #WorldWantsCBIForSSR

There is no need for vivek agnihotri’s or anyone to put out screen shots etc. for average common sense ppl kanganas interviews are enough to understand how shez going more into herself than sushant’s cause or even for the fact of nepo issue. Sorry but she is the one derailing it more by calling out other outsiders. Please dont think i’m against it but that is how it is in general. Just think with cool head for few seconds. Hope she realises or Maybe this battle should have a better leader.

it's a relief to finally see some ppl looking at things with a different perspective and not blindly agreeing with everything ms snooty has to say abt the industry that made her what she is today.. and tbh she isn't the greatest actress anyway.. only mediocre... manikarnika was not a good film... she has herself played a series of similar roles and should be the last person to typecast others... and hello... alia is a way better actor than kangana.. period!

From what i see is. Its the right message but the wrong messenger. Kangana has a problematic past and present thats why alot of people are divided when it comes to this issue. Yes nepotism is bad but she herself is practising and has benefited from it. She is in support of outsiders but she has also used and abused outsiders, didnt she start a war of words with people like Deepika, Tapsee, Swara and lets not talk about the Marnikana controversy.Now she wants to get justice for Ssr but not even 8 months ago she was raving and wanting to work with Ranbir and Ranveer so why didnt she mention Ssr. Like someone said Kangana is like Trump cuz she sure is dividing the country.

You need to shut up Anurag. You yourself removed your real surname didn’t you? Reason- you were ashamed of your heritage as it would give you difficulties to rise. There are however people like Kangana who have inherent pride and behaviour like this comes when they have been tortured beyond a point. Never saw you publicly support her yet you say she was a friend. To malign that friend it took you two minutes. Be ashamed you also have become part of that dirty filthy Bollywood. Money will come and go but respect won’t and you Bollywood dancing boys and girls have lost it. Stand up for your country, your heritage, your own brother who has so much more courage than you. Maybe he too is wrong and just you and your bloody Karen gang are ok. People hate all of you and it’s happened from within, because the public is far more intelligent than you realise. Just please stop talking because you sound so bought.

His concern is genuine. Most of Kangana’s true fans - we were her fans when she went against the system 4 years ago — we find her lost now. It’s in deed sad what she has become. But I feel , she is being used as Anurag said. Kangana, come back home.
