Actor Kangana Ranaut and filmmaker Karan Johar have been engaged in a long-running feud ever since the actress appeared on his talk show and called him ‘flag-bearer of nepotism’ a few years ago. Now surprisingly Kangana praised Karan Johar on social media for his last film.
Yes, you heard that right. Kangana Ranaut who called out and slammed Karan on various occasions praised him for his recently released war film Shershaah.
Shershaah starring Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani is the biopic of Captain Vikram Batra, a Kargil War hero who died in the line of duty during the war. The film is produced by Vishnu Vardhan.
The actress took to her Instagram stories and shared two comments on Friday — the first was about Captain Batra and the second about the film. “National hero Vikram Batra was a Himachali boy from Palampur, very popular and loved soldier. When the tragedy happened, news spread like wildfire in Himachal, it slid through our hearts. As a kid, I remember being tormented for days,” she wrote in her first post.
Then sharing a picture of Sidharth Malhotra from the film, she wrote in her second note, “What a glorious tribute @sidmalhotra. Congratulations to the entire team. It was a big responsibility and you all excelled.” Shershaah is co-produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions.
Last year when Kangana and KJo both were awarded the Padma Shri. Karan talked about the actress and said ‘too old’ to bear grudges. “So much has been said about Kangana, me and some kind of rivalry or simmering tension. But at every public event we’ve met, we’ve greeted each other graciously. whatever may have been said or insinuated in print, I think I’m too old and wise to hold any kind of malice in my heart for anybody. As a filmmaker, I respect Kangana’s talent, craft and what she brings to the table. She is an actor who has proved her mettle and is deserving of the honour. Besides Ekta (Kapoor) and Adnan Sami, I am honoured to receive the Padma Shri alongside Kangana,” Karan told the publication.
