Alia Bhatt Opens Up After Sending Flowers to Kangana Ranaut and Not Receiving a Warm Response
Alia Bhatt sent a bouquet to Kangana Ranaut following her Padma Shri win this week. Soon after, the latter’s sister Rangoli took to Twitter to post about it.
Kangana Ranaut is bold, honest and outspoken. She has had beef with several stars but remains unfettered by it. Her sister and manager Rangoli Chandel is no less fearless and often conveys her views on a subject on social media. Who remembers the time when the Ranaut sisters slammed actor Alia Bhatt? Not only did they accuse the Raazi starlet of nepotism but also for her rather “mediocre” performance in Gully Boy. However, Alia’s recent gesture for the Bollywood Queen shows that their words did not offend her one bit. Kangana was awarded the Padma Shri – the fourth highest civilian honour of India – this week. And much to everyone’s surprise, Alia was the first to congratulate her on the win.

Being the bigger person, Alia did not just laud Kangana for the milestone by penning her a note but also bought a bouquet of flowers to send over to the latter’s house. She, however, did not receive a warm response from Rangoli, who tweeted saying, “''Yeh dekho Alia ji ne bhi Kangana ko phool bheje hain, Kangana ka pata nahin magar mujhe bahut maza aa raha hai.” Reacting to this, Alia revealed she does not regret sending flowers to Kangana because she truly deserves it. “Let them react the way they want to. I am happy for Kangana,” said Alia.

Both Kangana and Rangoli have criticised Alia on multiple occasions. In an earlier interview, Kangana said that she asked Alia to “have a voice of her own”. She even accused her of being film-maker Karan Johar's ''puppet''. Kangana even called Alia's Gully Boy performance “mediocre” and said that it is “embarrassing” for her to be compared to her. She said, “I am embarrassed...What is there to beat in Gully Boy performance ....same snappy muh phat girl... Bollywood’s idea of a fiery girl, woman empowerment and good acting, spare me this embarrassment, please. Media has taken filmy kids love too far...stop pampering mediocre work or else bar will never be raised.”
