"Why would she want anyone basic to play her..."
Kangana Ranaut took to Twitter to speak about Aamir Khan on February 11, 2023.
Kangana shared a video of Aamir and author Shobhaa De from her book launch event in Mumbai where the two were discussing who could play the writer’s role in her biopic.
Aamir suggested actors like Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Alia Bhatt can play the role and mentioned that these are the names “at the top of his mind.”
However, Shobhaa De interrupted Aamir and told him that he’s forgetting Kangana as according to her, she would be the best actor to play her on-screen as she has the kind of “craziness” that would be required to play her.
After Shobhaa suggested Kangana’s name, Aamir responded:
“Yeah, she would do it well as well. Kangana would do it well.
“She is a strong actor, she’s very versatile.”
Shobhaa De added she loved Kangana Ranaut’s work in Thalaivii.
However, Aamir’s appreciation for the actor did not go well with Kangana as she tweeted that he tried his best not to take her name.
She posted on Twitter: “Bechara Aamir Khan…
“Ha ha, he tried his best to pretend like he doesn’t know that I am the only three times national award-winning actress none of those he mentioned has even one…
“Thank you @DeShobhaa ji I would love to play you.

“Shobaa ji and I have opposing political views but that doesn’t stop her from acknowledging my art, hard work and dedication to my craft that is the reflection of one’s integrity and value system….
“Wish you the best for your new book ma’am.”
In another tweet, she wrote: “Ha ha she is self-made, fiery and super intelligent…
“Why would she want anyone basic to play her… I am very fortunate that she remembered me…
“And I would love to play Shobaa ji… It’s girl love in the world of chauvinistic men.”
Meanwhile, this is not the first time Kangana Ranaut has criticised Aamir Khan.
She had once stated that superstars like Aamir Khan do not give a shout-out to her work even when she attends their films’ special screenings.
She also had called him “petty”.
On the work front, Kangana is currently looking forward to her next film Emergency.
She is directing the film and playing the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.
