'Karan Johar, Rakesh Roshan singled me out for criticism': Kangana Ranaut slams Bollywood once again


After a not-so-successful last year, Kangana Ranaut is all set to be back with a bang with her forthcoming film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, based on the life of Rani Lakshmibai. Not to forget, Kangana grabbed a lot of attention after she took over the reins of the film post director Krish's exit and even re-shot several sequences. Now as she is busy promoting her film in full swing, the actress once again spoke about her famous fewd with the Roshans and revealed how Karan Johar and Aditya Pancholi singled her out for criticism.

When asked if she sees herself as a lone wolf, Kangana told a leading daily that she might not have a lot of people with her physically, but she gets a lot of support from various quarters. "For example, when the whole nepotism thing happened, Karan Johar went on record and apologised to me. There are a whole lot of instances of such a nature. When I began shooting for Manikarnika, I switched off from everything. I never bothered about it, but there were these never-ending open letters," she quipped.

Despite the support, Kangana states that she did feel singled out and suffocated at times. "Script writer Apurva Asrani, filmmakers Ketan Mehta, Karan Johar and Rakesh Roshan and some others singled me out for criticism. The industry was having these intense meetings to make sure I was put in my place. Probably that was the only phase when I felt suffocated," the Queen star added.

Last but not the least, she took a dig at Hrithik Roshan's father Rakesh Roshan and Aditya Pancholi for continuing to say they would 'reveal' something and take an action, but clearly all of that didn’t go anywhere.

Work wise, Kangana will also be seen Mental Hai Kya and Panga, apart from Manikarnika, which releases on January 25.
