Kangana Ranaut, who was recently speaking to the media during the Manikarnika success bash, had many complaints over how Bollywood celebrities do not speak up or intervene in political matters. She even called out Ranbir Kapoor for making a comment on how he refrained from commenting once because he had electricity and water in his house and he was content with that! Speaking about the same and how Kangana slammed celebrities for maintaining silence on political issues, Alia recently responded to her comments.
Reacting to the recent comments made by Kangana Ranuat, Alia Bhatt added that she is someone who would like to restrict her comments to herself but at the same time she lauded Kangana for speaking up. Alia Bhatt said, “I definitely don’t have the ability to speak as candidly as Kangana does and I really do respect her for that. And may be in a way she is right that sometimes we do hold back because we often don’t feel the need to speak. My dad always says that there are already so many opinions in the world that the world can do with one less opinion. So I have an opinion but I will keep it to myself. But Kudos to her because she genuinely speaks really well.”
