Anupam Kher Says in Support of Manikarnika Star

Alia Bhatt and Kangana Ranaut

The 34-year-old actor unveiled a letter that sings praises for the Manikarnika star in the midst of the controversies she has been surrounded with, lauding her for her debut directorial as well as make it to the top of the summit without the help of male A-listers.

Kangana, in an earlier interview, had said while she had turned up for the screenings of "Dangal", "Secret Superstar" and "Raazi", Alia and Aamir Khan did not attend the screening of her film.

Alia responded to Kangana's claims and said that she will speak to her in private.

Looks like Ali Bhatt has gotten on Kangana Ranaut's bad side, because the latter feels Alia didn't support her during the release of Manikarnika. She even made much sharper comments that many on bollywood has "ganged up" against her. She is brilliant. I applaud her courage and performances. In the midst of the controversies, actor Anupam Kher has come out in support of Kangana. If I have upset her unintentionally, then I don't know. "I suggested that she grows some spine and supports an important film about woman empowerment and nationalism. if she doesn't have a voice of her own and her existence is all about being KJo's (Karan Johar) puppet then I don't consider her successful".

Kangana's Manikarnika is based on the warrior queen of the kingdom of Jhansi, Lakshmibai, who defied the East India Company forces during 1857's rebellion and fought until her last breath. Basically, it wasn't my intention.

Mumbai: Kangana Ranaut has always been the "Jhansi ki Rani" of Bollywood and doesn't spare anyone who hurts her. However, now she got support from Anupam Kher.

When a fan asked him about Manikrnika and Kangana, Anupam Kher tweeted, " #KanganaRanaut is a ROCKSTAR.

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