Tanushree Dutta, who started the #metoo movement in India, is back to her home in US. But the actress is surely keeping a tab on what is happening in Bollywood. She is also well aware of the Manikarnika controversy and has come forward to support Kangana Ranaut. In a letter, Tanushree has not only praised Manikarnika, but also talked in length about Kangana’s career and how she made it big without the”nagging support and recommendation of A- list male stars”.
Here is the complete letter-
Kangana Ranaut is a bonafide A++ list Actress. Why the extra plus because she is the only one who made it to the top of her game in Bollywood without the nagging support and recommendation of A- list male stars, without a high profile surname or an unrealistically perfect, pure and pious facade that most Bollywood actresses seem to wear on and off screen. Besides being a powerhouse performer she has truly set an example of someone who has made a unique and celebrated place for herself in an industry tough to conquer for an outsider. This Damsel has truly made it all the way despite all the distress; leaving the frat boys club of Bollywood and their dames twiddling their thumbs in abject contempt for her success. Kangana they don’t support you because they are intimidated by your talent, they hate your guts and their brawny thick muscle brains can’t seem to figure out for the love of sweet bejesus how on earth you made it this far without them!! They think they are Gods and its blasphemy to acknowledge that you shouldered a multimillion-dollar film on your own. With Manikarnika’s success, you have hit them on their softest spot and it will take them some time to recover. They will come around eventually…they have to or else they run the risk of being irrelevant.
I haven’t seen the film yet but my friends in the US recommended me to watch it asap so perhaps I will soon. My parents saw it on opening week and they are all praises especially for your performance in it. Keep up the good work and keep being you!!
