In an exclusive interview, Kangana has opened up about the success of her film and all the controversies surrounding her. The Manikarnika director initially spoke about the controversies related to her latest film. Recently Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi who is popularly known as Krish accused Kangana of taking away the directorial credits of the film.
Krish had reportedly left the film mid-way which later on paved the way for Kangana’s directorial debut in Bollywood. Kangana, however, denied the allegations against her and said that after Krish left, she discarded the whole film and started her direction. Kangana also went on to speak about the whole nepotism debate related to the film industry. The greatest revelation made by Kangana was regarding producer Karan Johar. Kangana said, ‘There are people who live on their face value. Like Karan Johar, I really like him, he is in your face whatever he is.’
She further added, ‘But what are these people who use you for situations and then later on, buttering both side of the toast.’ Kangana alleged that certain people in the industry who talk about women empowerment for hours did not have time to see her film. She said, ‘I had expectations from a few people and this film is not only about women empowerment, it’s beyond that.’ She went on to say that nepotism has really hit the core of the industry. She quotes,’This kind of ganging up, what it shows is it’s really cruel face of them which I can’t defend.’ The actress has spoken regarding nepotism that people are not giving her a chance to defend them.
