Kangana said that she had called up Alia personally and told her to "grow a spine" and that if she remains a "puppet" of Karan Johar's, she (Kangana) can not consider her successful.

Alia, however, had said that she hadn't been following the controversy so has no take on Kangana's comments.

Anupam Kher has come out in support of Kangana Ranaut, days after she criticised the Hindi film industry for not supporting the release of her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. She said that while she attended screenings of other actors' films, and supported their work on social media, none of them repayed the favour. Kangana, later addressed the media and answered questions regarding Manikarnika co-director Krish and actor Mishti Chakraborty's complaints about her alleged behaviour. She's a very outspoken person and I commend her for that as well. "I suggested that she grows some spine and supports an important film about woman empowerment and nationalism". "I told her if she is only focusing on earning bucks and not raise a voice, then her success has no value". Basically, it wasn't my intention.

Yellow-vest protests: photographer maimed by police grenade in Paris clash
Paris police confirmed that a demonstrator injured in the hand been treated by paramedics, but did not elaborate. Police said 31 demonstrators had been arrested in the unrest.

For those who aren't aware of the whole incident, recently a biopic of Jhansi ki rani "Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi" was released featuring Kangana Ranaut as Manikarnika. Because she is the only one who made it to the top of her game in Bollywood without the nagging support and recommendation of A-list male stars, without a high profile surname or an unrealistically flawless, pure and pious facade that most Bollywood actresses seem to wear on and off screen. As Kangana has been a straight forward and strong opinionated girl, she says what she feels in her heart.

Kangana Ranaut has been the talk-of-the-town for various reasons, mostly controversies. The actress got disappointed from the response she got on her movie from the film fraternity. She even made much sharper comments that many on bollywood has "ganged up" against her.
