Karan Johar is trying to shame a woman for being a woman: Kangana Ranaut

The battle between Karan Johar and Kangana Ranaut has become intense in last few days. Earlier Karan said that he was done with Kangana playing the woman card and victim card. And now she has responded to his statement.

Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Kangana said, “I can’t speak for Karan Johar’s understanding of nepotism. If he thinks that it is restricted to nephews, daughters and cousins, I have nothing to say. But, to say that he chose not to give me work is to mock an artiste. As importantly, his memory appears to be poor because we worked together in a movie (Ungli), which was produced by him. And quickly realised our sensibilities did not match. I’m also at a loss to understand how he gave me a platform by inviting me to be on his show. I’ve been on several platforms before with several global icons. To say he helped me voice my opinions is to discredit me as an artiste and a public personality. And, I think, it should be added here that I was invited to be a part of the show in its fifth season. His team requested my team for months for my dates.”

Kangana also gave it back on Karan’s use of the term ‘woman card’ and ‘victim card’. “But what is pertinent here is: why is Karan Johar trying to shame a woman for being a woman? What is this about the ‘woman card’ and the ‘victim card’? This kind of talk is demeaning to all women, particularly the vulnerable because they are the ones who really need to use them. The ‘woman card’ might not help you become a Wimbledon champ, or win you Olympic medals, or bag National Awards. It might not even land you a job, but it can get a pregnant woman who feels her water is about to break a ‘ladies’ seat on a crowded bus. It can be used as a cry for help when you sense a threat. The same goes for the ‘victim card’, which women like my sister, Rangoli, who is a victim of an acid attack, can use while fighting for justice in court.”

“I use every card possible. 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 in 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 also advised Karan to offer all these cards to his newborn daughter Roohi too. “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.”

Asking outsiders to come to Bollywood and prove their worth, Kangana said, “Also, the Indian film industry is not a small studio given to Karan by his father when he was in his early 20s. That is just a small molecule. The industry belongs to every Indian and is highly recommended for outsiders like me whose parents were too poor to give me a formal training. I learnt on the job and got paid for it, using the money to educate myself in New York. He is nobody to tell me to leave it. I’m definitely not going anywhere, Mr Johar.”

      The biggest mistake she has made is by saying that she does not want to work with the Khans! Vidya Balan also tried what you are doing! Not this worse thought I personally like Vidya Balan acting but your just a retarded women who needs some help!
      She needs to understand that The Khans are the Industry without them there is not Hindi Film Industry today
      People will forget her but the Khans will be remembered forever so the best thing for her is to forget and start working will actors and stop portraying herself as the weak women who is being discriminated and bullied by men! She’s full of shit!

    Every word of Kangna makes sense… Showing reality to Karan Johar…

  5. She went on karan johar show accused him of nepotism but if I’m not mistaken wasn’t she the female lead in ungli produced by karan johar. The only reason people have reservations about working with kangana is she is hard to work with that’s why anand l rai has overlooked her for dwarf but she will be perfect for thugs.

  6. She need psychiatric help. You can have issues with two or three people but not with a big list of 8 Bollywood stars till date. Hrithik, Karan, Deepika, Ajay, Shahid Kapoor, Prabhas, Suman etc..She is a actress and she may have some fans supporting her but you are not just fighting with Stars but it also influences negative impression on you from fans of these stars.

    Better she shuts her mouth going forward or is going to get a big left and right.
