The Accidental Prime Minister actor expressed his appreciation for Ranaut in a tweet. A user asked Anupam during his fan interaction on Twitter, "nobody from bollywood is supporting Kagana's Mankarnika movie".

"The actor replied, "#KanganaRanaut is a ROCKSTAR. The Manikarnika actress sparked the controversy, which started between her and director Krish, even further, when she called out Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt for not standing up for her film.

British actor Richard Keep, who essays General Hugh Rose in "Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi", says though he maintained a distance from the actress-director to stay true to his role during the shooting of the film, he found her detailed as a film director.

I suggested that she grows some spine and supports an important film about woman empowerment and nationalism.if she doesn't have a voice of her own and her existence is all about being KJo's (Karan Johar) puppet then I don't consider her successful.

If that was not enough, the outspoken actress again recently targeted the entire industry saying she would not spare anyone, and she would "expose them all". Talking about the Bollywood fraternity Kangana had said, "What Bollywood is doing, the planning and plotting, one thing is for sure, earlier I used to call them out for sexism, nepotism or pay disparity, but now I'll be after them".

She recalled telling her to support an important film about women empowerment and nationalism and saying that if she doesn't have a voice of her own and her existence is all about being Karan Johar's puppet, she can not consider her successful. "Main inki waat laga dungi, ek ek ko expose karungi (I will make their lives hell, and I will expose every single one of them)".

To which, Alia said, "I hope she doesn't dislike me and I don't think she dislikes me".
