It was no less than a surprise when Kangana Ranaut and Karan Johar agreed to share the stage on the latter’s new television show. Though the two were courteous towards each other and even hugged it out for the cameras, it was a certain comment by Kangana that got everyone talking.
While playing the game ‘How well do you know each other’, the actress was asked about what Karan serves his guests on his show. And pat came her reply, “Zeher pilata hai, mujhse puchho (Karan serves poison to his guests, ask me).”
Things turned ugly between the filmmaker and the actress when she called him the "flagbearer of nepotism" and a "movie mafia" on his chat show ‘Koffee With Karan’. This was followed by numerous exchange of words including an open letter from Kangana and several jibes from KJo.
Contrary to reports that there could be a patch up on cards for Kangana Ranaut and filmmaker Karan Johar, it might be nothing more than a "professional commitment" for the two.
In conversation with a tabloid, Kangana spoke about her scheduled meeting with Karan and revealed that she is "looking forward to being on the show." She, however, made it clear that it is a "professional commitment" for which she's being paid.
Ranaut also added that it was "delightful" to see that "Karan is okay with doing the show" with her and seems to be "slowly warming up" to her.
According to reports, KJo, on his upcoming show 'India's Next Superstars', had earlier revealed that he will be happy to have Kangana as a guest for the show. He had stated, "Our hearts are big, our home is open...". The filmmaker also added, "If we send an invite, we will welcome them with all due respect and love."
Kangana Ranaut is one actress who is known to wear her heart on her sleeve. The actress, who has been quite open about her feministic views, recently spoke about sexual harassment women face when they decide to speak up against it in public.
The ‘Queen’ star reportedly stated that we, as a country, need to do away with a mindset that the onus on the behaviour of a sexual offender is more often than not on the woman. She also feels that if her clothing or demeanour converts someone into sexual offenders, it is not in her hands.
Kangana also reportedly said that if a woman, who has faced sexual harassment wants to open up years later, she should be given a space. In fact, she feels she should be allowed to talk about it even from her deathbed.
The actress added that the term sexual harassment is most misunderstood term in India. According to reports, she feels most of the time it is misunderstood for consensual sex.
