The ugly spat between Bollywood Parivars and Kangana Ranaut is getting juicier day by day. After KJo spit venom at the Queen asking her to leave Bollywood, the Queen hit back saying she is going nowhere! Karan Johar who has made a career by launching stars and their children was snubbed on his sets of Kofee with Karan by Kangana last month who called him the “snooty flag-bearer of nepotism.” Though the stunned KJo remained tight-lipped on his show, it churned his mauled ego no end. A week later he mustered courage to hit her back at an away event at London saying “Kangana may not have understood the meaning of the word nepotism, and that he was fed up of seeing her play the ‘woman card’ and ‘victim card’ – and that if the actress had such a problem with the way Bollywood functions, she should think about quitting it”.
While Karan Johar’s sudden outburst has left everyone in shock, it stoked the fire in Kangana belly who bared her heart out with a lot to say. “I use every card possible. At the workplace, it’s the badass card to fight cutthroat competition. With my family and loved ones, it’s the love card. When fighting the world, it’s the dignity card, and for a seat in a bus, it’s the woman card. What is important to understand is that we are not fighting people, we are fighting a mentality. I am not fighting Karan Johar, I am fighting male chauvinism”.
She took him head on about his comments on her playing the “victim card” and the “woman card”. She reciprocated back by saying, “Why is Karan Johar trying to shame a woman for being a woman?”. She referred to it as “demeaning” and spoke of his poor memory, because she had acted in one of the films produced by him and it was his Kofee with Karan team that repeatedly over the years had requested Kangana on his show.

But what is this fight all about? Is it because she accused him of running a mafia- a cosy club of stars. Is it because of her spat with Hrithik Roshan of the Roshan Parivar? Or is it because she is not interested in acting opposite any of the Khans? Whatever be it, Kangana has already created a special position in Bollywood. She is the owner of three National Awards and has proved herself repeatedly, She has starred in several box office hits time and again and raked in the moolah without the help of the Khan brigade or any Godfather. She may have been called a ‘witch’ and a ‘whore’ by few but she has been adored as a queen by millions.
She is right when she says, “I’m also at a loss to understand how he gave me a platform by inviting me to be on his show” This because she has been on many bigger platforms and even several much-acclaimed international events. Karan Johar may back track and bend on his knees before the Khans or ShivSena, but Kangana is a street fighter with guts. Karan may not realize it now, but if you pick a fight with Kangana, she will rip you to pieces like a wild cat on the prowl. She has many scalps in her kitty and the acting skills to bail her through after every grueling fight.
