Kangana Ranaut was recently seen playing the character of J. Jayalalithaa in her movie ‘Thalaivii’ which is earning applause from audiences and critics similarly. However, Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds, who is promoting his latest film ‘Free Guy’ nowadays spoke during the promotions of the film, how Hollywood is now imitating Bollywood. Ryan told, “If you’re wondering whether Hollywood is just mimicking Bollywood…Well, the answer is yes. We have no shame, no shame at all,” Reynolds, who is known for his amazing sense of humor, explained in the video.
However, in response, Kangana on Instagram stories shared the picture of Ryan’s remark and wrote, “and trying to steal our screens”. Kangana earlier on Instagram had said about how Hollywood is taking possession of Indian screens. She said, “Hollywood has destroyed other industries by creating a global monopoly. They are taking over our screens. We would rather see the dubbed version of Lion King or Jungle Book overdubbed version of a Malayalam film. We need to enjoy our films first, be it Malayalam, Tamil, Telugu, or Punjabi. We must keep our people and our industry our priority and discourage Hollywood films. This is the way to make an Atmanirbhar Bharat”.
Moreover, in an earlier conversation with Film Companion, Kangana had talked about why she believed that she was the awful casting selection for Thalaivii. She told, “I thought I was the worst casting for Thalaivii. The worst there can be. Vijendra sir came to me, and I saw Jaya maa’s videos, and I was like what!” She further added, “the sheer obstacles of me, in my 30s, to gain 20-25 kgs of weight. And who knows how I’ll look after gaining… I would go mad, I would stress about it, and at this stage of my career, I have so much to lose. So I was filled with doubts when it came to Thalaivii.”
