Kongana is c grade, monotonous and non sense. Never was with any upcoming insider or outsider. She may tell Mukesh Ambani to remove Aakash from Board of Directors of reliance. Media should discourage her and such people who are trying to get publicity from big tragedy. C grade (even cant tell her artist).

Never liked the very average, mediocre Akhtar kids, going big on the shoulders of their parents' fame and network. and those pseudo intellectual vibes!! perhaps works for equally mediocre or lesser crowds.
