13 Apr 2019: Kangana says Alia's work in 'Gully Boy' mediocre, latter replies
While Kangana loves to take a dig at the Raazi actress, Alia often wins hearts with her controlled replies.
And this is what she did once again after Kangana called her performance in Gully Boy as mediocre and not worth a competition.
Here's what happened.
Reaction: 'Respect her opinion. Would like to focus on my work'
Talking about Kangana's rant, Alia said that she respects her opinion and believes the Tanu Weds Manu actress might have a particular reason to feel that way.
"I respect Kangana's work a lot and I respect her opinion. If she feels a particular way she must have reason to feel that way. I would just like to focus on my work," she added.
Praise: I remember how much she praised me for 'Raazi': Alia
Furthermore, Alia spoke of the time when Kangana sang praises for her after watching her 2018 release Raazi .
Kangana had called Alia the 'undisputed queen' of Bollywood for her performance in the Meghna Gulzar directorial.
Recalling Kangana's words, Alia stated, "I would rather remember how much she had praised me after watching Raazi. Maybe she will appreciate me again if I work hard enough."
Controversy: Kangana slammed media for pampering Alia's mediocre performance
Notably, Alia's statement comes after Kangana launched a tirade against her and called her performance in Gully Boy "mediocre work."
"What is there to beat in Gully Boy performance. Same snappy muh-phat (outspoken) girl. Bollywood's idea of a fiery girl, woman empowerment and good acting, spare me this embarrassment, please. Stop pampering mediocre work or else bar will never be raised," she mentioned.
Dig: Earlier, Kangana called Ranbir and Alia 'irresponsible'
Interestingly, this isn't the first time when Kangana took potshots at Alia.
Earlier, she had called out both Ranbir and Alia for not voicing their opinions on national issues, and called them "highly irresponsible."
To this, Alia gave a perfect reply and stated that she prefers keeping her opinions to herself as there are so many opinions already doing the rounds in the world.
