Kangana Ranaut reacts to Pooja Bhatt’s ‘proof’ video f

"Throw chappals at her call her mad and humiliate her.”

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s team has hit back at Pooja Bhatt’s claim in which she shared a video trying to prove Kangana owes her career to her father, Mahesh Bhatt.

On Wednesday, 8 July 2020, Pooja expressed her thoughts concerning the nepotism debate in Bollywood.

She stated that her father, Mahesh Bhatt and their production house has launched many newcomers into Bollywood, including Kangana. She wrote:

“Have been asked to comment on the hot topic Nepotism that people are raging about.

“As someone who hails from a ‘family’ that has launched more new talent-actors, musicians & technicians than the entire film industry combined I can only laugh.

“Facts don’t find takers. Fiction does.”

She continued to refer to actress Kangana Ranaut who has been very vocal about the prevalence of nepotism in Bollywood. She tweeted:

“As for Kangana Ranaut, she is a great talent, it not, she wouldn’t have been launched by Vishesh Films in Gangster (2006).

“Yes, Anurag Basu discovered her, but Vishesh Films backed his vision & invested in the film.

“No small feat. Here’s wishing her the very best in all her endeavours.”

In response to this statement, Kangana Raunt’s team said:

“Dear @PoojaB1972, #AnuragBasu had keen eyes to spot Kangana’s talent, everyone knows Mukesh Bhatt does not like to pay artists, to get talented people for free is a favour many studios do on themselves but that doesn’t give your father a license to throw chappals at her call her mad and humiliate her.”

She continued to mention:

“He also announced her “tragic end”. Also, why was he so invested in Sushant Singh Rajput’s and Rhea’s relationship?

“Why did he announce his end too, some of the questions you must ask him.”

Kangana’s team further added:

“For your info @PoojaB1972 Kangana had also auditioned for Pokiri (2006), alongside Gangster (2006) & got selected for that as well.

Pokiri (2006) went on to become an all time blockbuster, so you’re thinking that because of Gangster (2006) she is who she is, is totally not working. Water finds its level.”

On Thursday, 9 July 2020, Pooja Bhatt shared a video from the 2006 Filmfare Awards ceremony. She wrote:

“Guess videos lie too? Besides, it takes two to battle, I leave the denials & accusations to more evolved souls. I rather put forth facts!”

Kangana won the Best Debut Award for the film Gangster. The film was produced by Vishesh Films which is owned by Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt.

In the video, Kangana thanked Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt and even hugged the former before heading to the stage.

Kangana’s team once again responded to Pooja’s tweet. Taking a defensive position, they said:

“Pooja ji Kangana is thankful to Vishesh films for launching her but she wants outsiders to be treater better.”

“She is thankful that her ex broke up with her but she wishes it was done respectfully.

“She feels fortunate to find success in world run by men but she wishes patriarchy ends.”
