Kangana vs Alia: Family joins the war of words
Mumbai: If actor Kangana Ranaut's tirade against Alia Bhatt wasn't enough, the former's sister Rangoli Chandel entered the 'war of words' zone, as did the Raazi actor' mother Soni Razdan and co-actor Randeep Hooda.
Kangana has been calling out Alia since earlier this year for not supporting her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. But in a recent interview, Alia merely said: "I respect Kangana's work a lot and I respect her opinion. If she feels a particular way she must have reason to feel that way. I would rather remember how much she had praised me after watching Raazi. And I'd just like to focus on my work. Maybe she will appreciate me again if I work hard enough."
The controversy took a different turn with Kangana's sister hitting out at Alia and her mother Soni Razdan, calling them "non Indians who are living off this land, using and abusing its people and its resources, lying about intolerance and spreading hatred".
Soni finally broke her silence over the issue.
In a now-deleted tweet, she wrote: "Mahesh Bhatt is the man who has given her a break...She goes on to attack his wife and daughter. Daughter over and over again. What is left to be said then about abusing and hatred I wonder. Apart from character of course. Agenda. What's hers?"
