A few weeks ago, Kangana Ranaut appeared on Karan Johar’s chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’ Season 5 and called him out on everything he needed to be called out on since a long time – snubbing her because she was an outsider, giving her unnecessary attitude, stirring up controversies and of course, nepotism.
Karan Johar who seemed to be taking it all sportingly shocked everyone with his recent statements on the same Kangana Ranaut he was vocally in awe of on his own show.
“What does she mean by ‘movie mafia’? What does she think we are doing? Sitting here and not giving her work? Is that what makes us mafia? We do that by our choice. I do that because may be I am not interested to work with Kangana and that does not make me movie mafia, it makes me a man with an opinion. I appreciate that she had a great perspective and everyone lauded her for coming on my show. People said ‘she gave it off to Karan’ and I would say of course, but I was gracious enough to keep everything. I cut none of it and I do edit so much of stuff from the show. I was like let the world see her opinion. I gave her the platform to speak and now this is my platform so here I am speaking what I want to. I want to conclude by saying I am done with Kangana playing the woman card and the victim card. You can’t be a victim at every point of time who has a sad story to say as to how you have been terrorised by the bad world of industry. If that’s the case, leave it (sic),” were his exact words.
Now, in an explosive interview with Mumbai Mirror, Kangana Ranaut has hit back at Karan Johar and it’s savage AF!
“At the workplace, it’s the badass card to fight cutthroat competition. With my family and loved ones, it’s the love card. When fighting the world, it’s the dignity card, and for a seat on a bus, it’s the woman card. What is important to understand is that we are not fighting people, we are fighting a mentality. I am not fighting Karan Johar, I am fighting male chauvinism.” She said, when questioned about playing the ‘woman’ card, as alleged by KJo.
She also called out on KJo for making it look like he did her a favour by not editing her parts out.
"I’m also a little surprised at the 'graciousness' he says he displayed in choosing to not edit the jousty bits on the show. While I’d have blacklisted the channel if something like that had happened, let’s also remember that a channel wants TRPs, and he is just a paid host."
“He is nobody to tell me to leave it. I’m definitely not going anywhere, Mr Johar.” There was also this announcement that she was going nowhere.
And that wasn’t even all. She even had a special advice for KJo. “Now that Karan is the father of a little daughter he should provide her with all these cards -the `woman card’ and the `victim card’, as also the `self-made-independent-woman card’, and the `badass card’ that I flashed on his show. We will use whatever we need to ensure no one rocks our boat.” She said.
Well, you really can’t mess with Kangana. KJo should have known.
