A few days ago, Kangana Ranaut had criticised Ranbir Kapoor, alongwith other film stars, for not taking stand on politics.
She called Ranbir, Alia and Ranveer ‘irresponsible’ for not speaking their mind on politics.
At a recent event, when Alia Bhatt was asked about Kangana constantly criticizing her, she said, “I do not have that ability to speak as candidly as Kangana does and I really, really respect her for that. Maybe in a way she is right. Sometimes we do hold back, or maybe we think that ‘kyu khamakha bolne jayein (why should we speak uselessly). My dad always says there are already so many opinions in the world, the world can do with one less opinion. So I have an opinion but I will keep it to myself. Kudos to her, she genuinely speaks very well.”

Speaking at the success party of her directorial debut, Manikarnika The Queen of Jhansi, Kangana had said, “I think I saw Ranbir or Alia on Anupama’s show saying ‘Ham politics ke bare mei kyu bolein?’ Aise nahi chalta, you have to be responsible. Ranbir Kapoor was telling somebody ki mere ghar mei toh bijli pani ata hai, mai kyun politics se? You know, so how, ye desh ne, ap desh ki wajah se aapka ghar hai. Ye deshvasiyon ka hi paisa hai jisse aap Mercedes mein baithte hain. How can you talk like that? (We cannot say that we work in films and will not talk about politics. You have to be responsible. Ranbir Kapoor was telling somebody that why should he discuss politics when he gets water and electricity at his home. This is your country, this is where you live and it is the money of our countrymen that enables you to sit in a Mercedes.).”
On the work front, Alia will be next seen in Brahmastra. Apart from this, she will also seen in Karan Johar’s period drama film Kalank.
