New Delhi: Bollywood actors Kangana Ranaut and Swara Bhaskar got into a bitter verbal spat on Twitter on Monday (February 22).
It all began with an alleged derogatory comment by a leader against Kangana. Congress MLA Sukhdev Panse on February 19 had made derogatory remarks against the actress and called her a ‘Naachney Gaane Waali’.
Kangana had reacted to this and tweeted, ”Whoever this fool is does he know I am no Deepika Katrina or Alia…. I am the only one who refused to do item numbers, refused to do big hero ( Khan /Kumar) films which made entire Bullywoodiya gang men +women against me. I am a Rajput woman I don’t shake ass I break bones”.
In response to her tweet, Swara shared a YouTube video of Kangana’s ‘item number’ from the film ‘Rajjo’ and wrote, ”Loved your dancing in this ‘item number’ in the film Rajjo.. you are a great performer and great dancer Kangana.. looking forward to your next!”
This left Kangana fuming and in a string of tweets she revealed that Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Farah Khan had offered her item songs. ”These B grades won’t understand but I said no to item songs of Sanjay Bhansali and Farah Khan also, which made few A listers over night sensations, I sacrificed a lot to be who I am today, back off B grade hyenas if these directors offer you even a passing you will go crawling”.
”Whenever I impose difficult questions on A listers all B listers come like sepoys, item numbers is essentially a song which isn’t consequential to the plot of the film, uses derogatory language for woman, even when I played a nautch girl I made sure it’s not derogatory for woman”.
Kangana and Swara had shared screen space in the films ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ and ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’. This is not the first time that the two have hit headlines for their spat. Swara had earlier criticised Kangana for speaking against the ongoing farmers’ protest in the nation. Farmers have been protesting on Delhi borders against three nee farm laws introduced by the government.
