New Delhi: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is never shy about speaking her mind. She recently took to her Instagram name to secretly attack filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. Sharing a series of Instagram Stories featuring Mahesh Bhatt’s old snaps, the actress wrote, “Mahesh ji incites people to violence in a casual and poetic way.” In the video, Mahesh Bhatt can be seen speaking about the religion Islam, where he says that a person who is afraid can never be a Muslim and a person who is a Muslim can never be afraid. Kangana therefore claimed his real name was “Aslam” and not “Mahesh”.
In another clip shared from the same video, she wrote: “I was told his (Mahesh Bhatt) real name is Aslam… he converted to marry his second wife (Soni Razdan)… it’s a lovely name , why hide him?” In the third clip, Kangana wrote, “He must use his real name and not represent any particular religion if he converts…”
Kangana Ranaut made her Bollywood debut in 2006 with Mahesh Bhatt’s film Gangster, starring Emraan Hashmi. She has often berated Mahesh Bhatt and his daughter and actress Alia Bhatt for their religion.
On the labor front, Kangana Ranaut was most recently seen in the multilingual biographical film Thalaivii, based on the life of former Tamil Nadu Prime Minister J. Jayalalitha. She was also embroiled in a controversy with Filmfare when they sent her an invitation and nominated her for a Best Actress – Female award for Thalaivii. She will next play the role of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in “Emergency,” which also marks her independent directorial debut.
