Bollywood’s Queen Kangana Ranaut is always surrounded by controversies. She is known for her stance on any political issue and has always been always upfront about her views.
Recently, she took a stand for popular South Indian actor Mahesh Babu who commented on Bollywood. In a recent interview, Mahesh Babu said that he thinks Bollywood can’t afford him.
The ‘controversial Queen’ came in support of the actor and said, “He’s right, Bollywood cannot afford Mahesh Babu because I know for a fact that many filmmakers offer him many movies and he and his generation singlehandedly have made the Telugu film industry the number 1 film industry in India. So now, Bollywood can definitely not afford them.”
She further added, “Why create controversies on small things? If he said that in some context, I think it only makes sense. We can also say Hollywood cannot afford us or say whatever way we want to convey our point. But here’s one thing, I think he has shown respect for his work and industry which is why he has reached the level he is at today and we cannot deny that. The Telugu film industry did not get anything on a platter. They’ve left behind everyone, even the Tamil industry, in recent years. We have lots to learn from them. As for the languages, I have talked about them at length. I believe all languages in our country are equally respectable. It is a small thing that we respect each other’s languages.”
Mahesh Babu had recently said, “I may sound arrogant, but I did get a lot of offers in Hindi. But I think they can’t afford me. I don’t want to waste my time. The stardom and love I have here in Telugu cinema, I never thought of going to another industry. I always thought I will do films here and they will become bigger, and my belief is turning into a reality now. I can’t be happier.”
