During a recent interview, Kangana Ranaut voiced her dissatisfaction with Bollywood stars Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn once again. Kangana Ranaut’s recent dig comes ahead of her next film Dhaakad, which is set to hit theatres on May 20, 2022, and for which she is now on a promotional tour.
Ranaut was asked about her reaction to Ajay Devgan’s statement on ‘Bollywood Bonhomie’ during a recent interview. When asked if actors support one another, in Bollywood the actress responded fittingly. Kangana quickly stated that Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar do not promote her films. She said, “But Ajay Devgn will never promote my film. He will promote other films but will never promote my film. Akshay Kumar called me, quietly, to tell me ‘hush-hush’ that you know, I love your ‘Thalaivi’, but he will not tweet my trailer.”
When asked the reason behind this, she replied, “You need to ask them not me. I can’t answer on their behalf. Mr. Bachchan tweeted my trailer and immediately deleted it. You might ask me why did he do that. I don’t know. You need to ask them.”
Kangana Ranaut openly asked Ajay Devgn if he would play a character in her female-centric film. The actress said, “Ajay Devgn goes and does a role in a female-centric film. But will he do that in my film? I will be more than obliged and I will be more than grateful if he does. If he supports my film how Arjun Rampal has. Of course, it is quite evident that they don’t want to. I think all the actors should support me as I support them. I was the first to praise films like The Kashmir Files and Shershaah.”
She added, “I praised Sidharth Malhotra and even Karan Johar’s film. I did it openly, not making quiet calls. This bonding exists between them, but when I reach out they don’t reciprocate, not yet. But I am sure that will change.”
