Mumbai: Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher says National Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut will be remembered for decades for her hard work in the Hindi film industry.
On Monday, Kher replied to a Twitter user Akash Banerjee — who runs a YouTube channel titled ‘The Desh Bhakt’ — who trolled Kangana for using a mechanical horse to shoot a fight sequence in her latest release Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi. The 63-year-old replied by calling Kangana a “self-made actress”.
“How much venom this man has against a self-made actress Kangana Ranaut! This is called ‘acting’ idiot. Actors all over the world do that. That is their job. She will be remembered for decades for her hard work in movies. While you got your fifteen minute fame by using her name,” tweeted Anupam Kher.
Veteran actor Paresh Rawal as well backed Kher on this, and wrote, “According to these dimwits and pinheads they believe that Superman and Batman in Hollywood films are actually flying and it’s not some camera trick or CG effects…!”
Manikarnika which is a biopic on the warrior queen Rani Laxmibai, also stars Ankita Lokhande, Atul Kulkarni, Jisshu Sengupta, Suresh Oberoi and Danny Denzongpa.
On the work front Anupam Kher is currently busy with the second season of medical drama series New Amsterdam. In Bollywood, he will be seen in a thriller titled One Day directed by Ashok Nanda.
