Actor Kangana Ranaut seems to be in no mood to cut Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor any slack for not making any comments about the country's politics.
Mumbai: Kangana Ranaut may be taking the role of the Queen of Bollywood a tad too seriously. The actor has lashed out yet again at actors Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor for refusing to discuss the political situation in the country.
In her recent interview with Mid Day, the Manikarnika star accused the two of misusing the 'youngster' tag to shirk their social responsibilities. "What is this thing of calling them young...Ranbir Kapoor is 37 years old..young kid of the generation. My father was a middle-aged man in that time. And Alia Bhatt is turning 27...at 27 I was writing dialogues for Queen...I don't understand what is young thing; unko nahi pata hoga vo bacche hai. Kaunse bacche hai? My mother had three children at 27. This is absolutely unfair. Bacche hai ki dumb hai ki kya hai..You can't get away with this," she said.
Earlier, Bhatt had responded to her similar accusations with a diplomatic reply, "My dad always says that there are already so many opinions in the world that the world could do with one less opinion. So, I have an opinion but I will keep it to myself. But kudos to her because she genuinely speaks really well." But, Ranaut is not having it and wants to see a genuine change.
In the interview, she also said, "At this age, at this stage, you should know. I am not saying they are some 12-13 year old and you are putting mike before their mouths and be like talk, talk. If they can be the highest tax payers of this country then why can't they care about this country?"
Meanwhile, Ranaut will be portraying the former Tamil Nadu chief minister, J Jayalalithaa, in a biopic. Titled Thalaivi in Tamil and Jaya in Hindi, the biographical drama will be directed by Vijay, one of the top filmmakers from South who has helmed movies like Madrasapattinam and Deiva Thirumagal.
