Kangana Ranaut versus Bollywood: Anupam Kher supports actress in fight against industry

The 34-year-old actor unveiled a letter that sings praises for the Manikarnika star in the midst of the controversies she has been surrounded with, lauding her for her debut directorial as well as make it to the top of the summit without the help of male A-listers.

While not many reacted to the Queen actress' blatant words, Anupam Kher expressed support for her on Twitter.

Kangana recently called Alia "Karan Johar's puppet", which Alia feels is uncalled for.

Kangana Ranaut's ' Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi' that is a biographical account on Rani Laxmibai of Jhansi, has been on a winning spree at the box office. Basically, it wasn't my intention.

While speaking to DNA, Alia said, "I would like to react to her (Kangana) personally if she has any complaints. They think they are Gods and its blasphemy to acknowledge that you shouldered a multi-million dollar film on your own.With Manikarnika's success you have hit them on their softest spot and it will take them some time to recover.They will come around eventually.they have to or else they run the risk of being irrelevant". Dangal, for me, was a film about women empowerment.

She added, "Alia (Bhatt) sent me the trailer of Raazi and said, "Please watch it". I don't know what they are threatened by". "I hope she doesn't dislike me and I don't think she dislikes me".

She continued, "What Bollywood is doing, the planning and plotting, one thing is for sure, earlier I used to call them out for sexism, nepotism or pay disparity, but now I'll be after them". Kangana said that she had called up Alia personally and told her to "grow a spine" and that if she remains a "puppet" of Karan Johar's, she (Kangana) can not consider her successful.

"Hope she understands the true meaning of success and her responsibilities".
