Will Bollywood biggies work with Kangana Ranaut? Vikram Bhatt speaks up
Since actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Kangana Ranaut has been openly questioning Bollywood, holding directors like Mahesh Bhatt responsible. Following her ongoing conflict with Bollywood, director Vikram Bhatt shared his views. While praising Kangana Ranaut’s acting skills he said that she has all the right to voice her opinions however, she must be ready for responses to her opinion as well.
On June 14, Sushant was found dead in his Mumbai residence. The case, since then, has been passed on to the CBI who is still investigating. Soon after Sushant’s death, Kangana started actively issuing statements blaming Karan Johar and Mahesh Bhatt for unfairly promoting people in the industry and ignoring the real talent.
On being asked whether the Big Production houses will now work with Kangana, Vikram Bhatt said, “Now the question is, is Kangana a good actor? I would say, yes, she is. She has proved it with her performances and you cannot take that away from her. Kangana can make her films. I don’t think Kangana has ever worked in a Yash Raj Films film. I guess she worked in a film with Karan Johar but now neither she will work with him nor will Karan work with her. However, she will get work and it’s not like she will completely be boycotted.” Vikram Bhatt spoke to HT.
Kangana Ranaut in the recent times has been speaking up on political issues, for example, she openly criticised Uddhav Thackeray. She also spoke up on Bollywood and nepotism. Bhatt’s interview is in the light of her recent public commentary.
In the interview with HT, Bhatt also talked about Kangana’s political statements. He said Kangana is a type of a person who likes to be vocal about her opinions and since this is independent India nobody can stop anyone from saying what they want to. He then added that when she makes political statements she must expect a similar response. Similarly, when she constantly annoys someone with her statement she must be ready to take the consequences.
When asked about working with Kangana he said that since the actress likes to write and direct her films there is nothing much for a person like him can do. He further added that if he works with Kangana he will have to give claps during the shoot and work as a clapper boy.
