Kangana Ranaut accuse bollywood star kids for failure of hindi film, says people don’t relate, ‘They Look Like Boiled Eggs’
Kangana Ranaut has often give her views about the issues that interest her and she never shies away from giving rise to controversial statments. The actress has often been open about her disapproval for nepotism in Bollywood. The actor has been voiced about how she feels the opportunities given to star kids in Hindi films deprive ‘outsiders’. This time it wasn’t the Bollywood celebs, but Kangana has now targeted their kids, speaking about their lack of relatability with the audience inflicting Hindi films to lose to South cinema.
The Dhakaad actress, in a new interview with ABP Live, Kangana answered to a question on what makes South Indian cinema more successful than Bollywood of late.
The actor replied, “The way they have a connect with their audience, it is very strong. I wouldn’t say fans, it’s much more than that. With us what happens is that their (stars’) kids go abroad to complete their studies. They talk in English, watch only Hollywood films. They eat only with knife and fork and talk differently. So, how will they connect? Dekhne me bhi ajeeb se aise lagte hai jaise uble hue ande (They even look weird like boiled eggs). Their entire look has changed so people cannot relate. I don’t mean to troll anyone.”
For the unversed, Telugu and Kannada movie industries have whipped all Hindi films at the box office. Newly, both RRR and KGF: Chapter 2 have earned over ₹1000 crore, while Pushpa: The Rise was also incredibly successful, earning over ₹100 crore in the Hindi belt alone.
Meanwhile, the Hindi versions of these movies alone beat most Bollywood movies released in the last two years.
Kangana has accused the star kids for the lack of audience’s interest, who are being cast as the main men and women in many Hindi movies.
She gave the instance Allu Arjun’s character Pushpa in the 2021 Telugu blockbuster Pushpa: The Rise and revealed how people could relate to it. She added, “Look how Pushpa looks like someone we know. Every labourer is able to connect with him. Tell me which of our heroes can look like a labourer in today’s times? They cannot. So, their culture (of the South Indian film industry) and their grounded nature is paying them off. I hope they don’t start taking inspiration from the West. It’s important to stay connected to people within your country.”
However, on the work front, Kangana Ranaut is nowadays promoting the release of her spy action-thriller Dhaakad. The movie stars her in the role of a super spy. Helmed by Razneesh Ghai, it also features Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta and is set to release on May 20.
