Kangana reveals how she was 'assaulted' by Mahesh Bhatt
Kangana Ranaut has once again taken a jibe at Bollywood's 'movie mafia' by recounting some of her own experiences in which she faced hostility.
In an interview with Republic TV, Kangana opened up about being launched by Mahesh in his manufacturing, Gangster. “Effectively, I’m grateful, however that doesn’t give them the correct to name me mad and psychotic and throw chappals at me. Mahesh Bhatt threw a chappal at me,” she mentioned
She went on to say how she was later called into the studio and offered a role in Dhoka but due to her not believing in what the film stood for, she had to reject the offer.
“Even at 18, I had this much common sense. I said, ‘If you are tortured, there is a lot you can do. You can join the army or police. Why do you have to become a suicide bomber?’ I said no to that film.”
She went on to expose his reaction to her refusal: “He was literally about to come on to me like he is going to beat me or something. His daughter held him back and said, ‘Papa, don’t.’ I escaped somehow.”
Kangana said that the film industry was suffering from a ‘hangover of the mafias’ and could not take it when a film offer was turned down.
“Why can’t I say no if I want to? These people are still in the hangover of the mafias, that ‘bhai ko mana nahi kar sakte’ otherwise you will be shot dead. That needs to end in this film industry,” she said.
