Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut always tries her best to portray a larger than life image offscreen. But unfortunately, the more she tries, the more she ends up in deeper controversies. Sometimes, she’s praised for her voice, the rest of the time she simply gets trolled by the netizens. Here is a few ‘talk of the town’ controversies that led Kangana Ranaut to the headlines.
The time when Kangana used Sushant Singh Rajput’s death for publicity
The untimely demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput brewed up some ugly sides of Bollywood. Everyone was wondering what went wrong, also how and why that happened. To make things even worse, Kangana Ranaut made some blasting comments. Even though there was no proof, she claimed that Sushant was killed since he knew Bollywood’s dirty secrets. She couldn’t give any specifics, she just kept accusing people. She even asked for protection from the central government saying she has life risk. Well, the actress seemed to be using Sushant’s death for publicity!
Kangana’s attacks on Karan Johar’s nepotism
Kangana Ranaut always talks about nepotism. On Koffee with Karan, she teased him and called him the “sole flag bearer of Nepotism”. That comment created a major storm in the industry. All were agreeing with her and asking Karan Johar the same question. The topic of nepotism then became the central topic of discussion in every show, interview and movie promotion.
Kangana’s shocking allegations on Hrithik Roshan
This incident could easily be called one of the biggest scandals in Bollywood of recent times. There were so many reports from stalking to exchange of love letters, secret engagements and so on. Both Kangana and Hrithik Roshan made appearances on national television to make their personal announcements. It was no less than a circus. Hrithik completely denied having any relationship with her. But Ranaut kept insisting that they had an affair. She posted pictures of emails exchanged between the two on open media. Referring to these emails, Hrithik said that it was a bogus email id. Later he took a legal step against the actress. Finally, the case was transferred to the Criminal Intelligence Unit (CIU).
Kangana calling other Bollywood celebrities drug addicts
The drug abuse case started after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput. It still has a buzz in the media. Kangana Ranaut has taken up this opportunity. She has claimed that almost 90% of Bollywood actors are on drugs. She even urged the NCB to test Alia, Ranveer, Ranbir, Deepika, Sara and Shraddha. Now, the netizens are not happy with her. They feel like it is not very nice of her to become a moral police. The reason is very simple, last year a video of her came out where she identified herself as a drug addict.
The time when Kangana’s Twitter account was suspended
Yes, that’s right, Bollywood Queen Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account has been permanently suspended. It happened because she kept on posting hateful comments on Twitter and violated Twitter’s policy. Now, Kangana has said that suspending her account shows an alleged race bias!
