Kangana Ranaut has been one of the most vocal actresses, who is known to speak her heart out without mincing any words. She never fails to express her opinions. Recently, she took a dig at Karan Johar for 'belittling' Vivek Agnihotri's 'The Kashmir Files.' The Dhaakad actress took to her Instagram and shared Agnihotri's tweet and wrote, "The audacity to belittle The Kashmir Files, a film made on Hindu genocide (and) also trying to ride on its success. The Kashmir Files was made in Rs10 crores..."
Kangana came to all guns blazing at Karan Johar and added, "Now, according to mafia minions, Karan Johar film has beaten it (The Kashmir Files) brutally... Karan Johar ji aap kya cheeze ho yaar."
In another story, she wrote, "Post pandemic verdict model, specially invented for Karan Johar films... BTW Thugs of Hindustan earned around Rs 280 crore worldwide gross and its budget was also around Rs280 crore... Lekin they didn't spend on PR machinery. Nahi toh with the new KJo models, no film will ever flop."
