Karan Johar expresses excitement for Kangana Ranaut’s ‘Emergency’ film, Kangana responds

At a recent Express Adda session organized by The Indian Express, filmmaker Karan Johar shared his enthusiasm for Kangana Ranaut’s upcoming film, “Emergency,” where she portrays former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The event, held on Monday, saw Karan Johar addressing a question about a political event he would like to witness on the big screen, to which he responded, “Emergency is being made, and I am excited to watch it.”

In response to Karan Johar’s statement, Twitter user X expressed a hint of skepticism, posting, “Really? Change of heart.” Kangana Ranaut, known for her candid and fearless social media presence, swiftly replied to this tweet, recalling a past incident. She wrote, “Ha ha last time, when he said he was excited to see Manikarnika, the worst smear campaign of my life was unleashed upon me on its releasing weekend…”


The actress went on to share a troubling episode from her past, stating, “Almost all main actors working in the film were paid to sling mud on me and sabotage the film, and suddenly the most successful weekend of my life was turned into a living nightmare for me… Ha ha I am scared now, very scared… because he is excited again…”

Kangana’s candid response underscores the complex history between her and Karan Johar, adding an intriguing layer of drama to the much-anticipated release of “Emergency.” As fans eagerly await the film’s premiere, the exchange between these two prominent figures in the Indian film industry continues to spark curiosity and conversation.
