Manikarnika Star Kangana Ranaut came out in support of Vidyut Jamwal who was left out of an OTT announcement event, even when Vidyut’s flick was one of the seven films that were being released.
It has been a little while since Abhay Deol called out the favoritism existing in Bollywood, Vidyut Jammwal, and Kunal Kemmu both recently slammed OTT platform: Disney+ Hotstar for not extending an invitation to them for the press conference that was being organized to announce the digital release of seven films.
Going by the incoming reports, the OTT platform announced the release of 7 films including Vidyut’s Khuda Haafiz and Kunal’s Lootcase. But they invited only bigger stars like Ajay Devgn, Abhishek Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, and Alia Bhatt, with Varun Dhawan as the moderator.
This decision didn’t go down well with Vidyut and Kunal. And the duo took a dig at the streaming platform in their respective tweets.
“A BIG announcement for sure!! 7 films scheduled for release but only 5 are deemed worthy of representation. 2 films, receive no invitation or intimation. It’s a long road ahead. THE CYCLE CONTINUES.”
While Kunal Kemmu wrote on his Twitter page,
“Izzat aur pyaar maanga nahi kamaya jaata hai. Koi na de toh usse hum chhote nahi hote. Bas maidaan khelne ke liye barabar de do chhalaang hum bhi oonchi laga sakte hai.” (Love and respect should be earned and not asked for. It doesn’t make you small if someone doesn’t give you these. Just give us an equal platform and we too can excel)”
Kangana Ranaut, who was the one who kickstarted the conversation on nepotism in Bollywood, tweeted in support of Vidyut Jammwal. Along with her, other B-town celebrities like Randeep Hooda, Genelia D’Souza, and others also slammed the long-running discriminatory behavior in the film industry.
Kangana Ranaut said,
Such A Shame That Ill Treatment Of Outsiders Continues
Kangana Ranaut’s team wrote the tweet on her behalf,
“Such a shame that ill treatment of outsiders continues even in territories where everyone is new and an outsider.”
