Kangana Ranaut has been making headlines since her video slamming Bollywood’s bigwig has gone viral. After reportedly gaining millions of followers on Instagram since then, the actress’s publicity team has now slammed an opinion article that called it a PR stunt.
A Twitter statement by her team read, “If Ms. Ranaut’s focus was on gaining followers, all she had to do was make an account for herself, she chooses not to be on social media, she is arguably the most successful actress & can enjoy a huge following. Even ‘not so successful people on Instagram’ boast of millions of followers, so stop peddling your PR agenda.”

Kangana blasts Media for Sushant’s demise
In the video, Kangana had blatantly accused the gatekeepers of Bollywood and media for not giving Sushant his due credit as an actor. She went on to dismiss any notions about Sushant’s mental endurance saying, “How can a person who scored a scholarship at Stanford University be mentally weak. Why wasn’t his debut performance in Kai Po Che acknowledged?”
In the almost 2 min long video Kangana singled out Gully Boy and asked, “why did a terrible film like this win all the awards while Chhichore was ignored?”
Watch the whole video here:
She then shifted the narrative towards herself slamming lapdog journalists who write negative pieces and blind items on Sushant. She said, “Why have these people not acknowledged my work and the superhit films I’ve directed?” However, so far Kangana has directed a single period film, Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
Since the video, Kangana has gained close to two million followers on Instagram while others like Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar have been losing them.
Sushant Singh’s untimely death has left the industry in a state of shock. While some are mourning the loss of young, talented star others are using this tragedy to propagate their own agendas.
