Kangana Ranaut is one of those Bollywood actresses who never shy away from putting forward their opinions without any fear. From talking about the famous Me-Too Campaign to her contemporaries, Kangana has always managed to be blunt about everything ever since she stepped in Bollywood. As the actress kickstarted the promotions of her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, the actress spoke at length about her position in Bollywood as well as about her contemporaries like Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma and others.
During an interview with News18, Kangana was asked about the other actresses in B-town and is she feels threatened by them. She stated, " don't feel so threatened by anyone around. You know like you see I will praise Alia or I would praise Anushka or I would praise everyone. I never shied away from going to Deepika's Piku trial. Everyone I have praised in my capacity. Sonakshi's Lootera I saw and the whole year I praised her. I don't get threatened. Why don't I see same sort of...why is everyone like, "Oh, oh, oh she doesn't exist"? Why is that going on? I exist. My film has crossed millions and millions of views and it is one of the most promising films of this year. So when they pretend I don't exist...nobody ever talks about my teasers or trailers."
Kangana was further quizzed if she feels like an island, to which she replied, "It is not about being an Island. You see other film industry also, you don't have to come out of each other's ass but people exist. When I saw Raazi, I praised it. I didn't think who's film it is. It is a film. That is it. It doesn't belong to an individual, it belongs to society. I don't see a film and think, "Oh, this person's film so maybe I shouldn't look at that side" or something like that. I don't feel like that."
