Kangana Ranaut’s Comments
“Yes, I also read about zero recovery of NTR, it’s called black mark on the actor’s career. My heart goes out to Balakrishna sir who trusted Krish and put so much at stake, but for me now is the time to question every vulture who was out for my blood, who attacked and harassed me for taking charge of a troubled situation and making a critically acclaimed and commercially successful film (Manikarnika), but what is shameful is that Krish and some paid media ran a sabotage campaign against a martyr’s biopic.”, she was quoted as saying to Pinkvilla.
