Alia Bhatt said on Thursday she will apologise to Kangana Ranaut on a personal level if she was upset with her. Her response comes days after Ranaut lashed out at her for not responding to her gestures and invitations for her ‘Manikarnika’ screening.
In a recent interview, Ranaut had spoken out about how people in the industry, including Aamir Khan and Alia Bhatt, did not support her during the release of ‘Manikarnika,’ reports DNA India. She said while she had turned up for the screenings of their movies, Bhatt and Khan failed to respond during the release of her film.
Replying to a question, Bhatt said, “I hope she doesn’t dislike me and I don’t think she dislikes me. I don’t think I have done anything intentionally to upset her. If I have, I will apologise to her on a personal level.” The star, who is currently promoting her upcoming film ‘Gully Boy’ with Ranveer Singh, said she has always admired Ranaut.
“But I have always said that I have admired her a lot as an actor and a person. She is very outspoken and it takes courage to be that way. I wasn’t aware of this problem or anything, I was busy with the shooting. So yes, what can I say, I don’t want to upset anybody,” Bhatt said.
Ranaut on Thursday claimed that the industry had ganged up against her for her previous “nepotism” comment, but she was not afraid.
