Kangana Ranaut has been the talk-of-the-town for various reasons, mostly controversies.

Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt has responded to Kangana Ranaut's recent comments alleging that she is a "puppet" of filmmaker Karan Johar and "does not have a spine" to give her own statements. The Manikarnika actress is being praised for her performance in the film as well as her outspoken nature. While several people from the industry came out in support of the actress, Kangana called out Alia Bhatt in an interview for not taking a stand and supporting her during the controversy.

Kangana Ranaut, who is now basking in the success of her latest release 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi', recently called out the Hindi film industry for failing to acknowledge her work. She said that while she attended screenings of other actors' films, and supported their work on social media, none of them repayed the favour. "I suggested that she grows some spine and supports an important film about woman empowerment and nationalism".

Mumbai: Kangana Ranaut has always been the "Jhansi ki Rani" of Bollywood and doesn't spare anyone who hurts her. I told her if she is only focusing on earning bucks and not raise a voice, then her success has no value. "I didn't do anything to get a reaction like this", Alia Bhatt said.

"Hope she understands the true meaning of success and her responsibilities". She even said that Alia's existence is all about being Karan Johar's puppet. "If I have, I will apologise to her on a personal level". Kangana feels that Bollywood is ganging up against her for her outspokenness and blunt behaviour.

Manikarnika: Queen Of Jhansi has nearly made 85 crores at the box office and still continues to roar among the audiences. The actress got disappointed from the response she got on her movie from the film fraternity.

Kangna had expected the same reaction from Alia, but failing to receive the same treatment she came down harsh on her.
