Kangana Ranaut, a Bollywood actress, didn’t call Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt out by name, but she did make indirect fun of them by saying that they got married under the influence of Karan Johar, whom she refers to as “mafia daddy.” On Tuesday, July 18, in the early hours, Kangana Ranaut made veiled jabs at Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt on her Instagram Stories. The Panga actress alleged in her writings that Ranbir wed Alia “under the pressure of mafia daddy,” who promised him a trilogy of films. It is easy to deduce that she is alluding to Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra film trilogy and Karan Johar as the “mafia daddy.” 

Kangana Ranaut posted on her Instagram, saying, “In another news a farzi (fake) husband wife jodi (couple) who live on separate floors and pretend to be a couple are spreading fake news about movie announcements which aren’t being made also calling a brand owned by Myntra their own … besides no one wrote about how wife and daughter was snubbed from a recent family trip, while so-called husband was texting me begging and pleading to meet him ….This farzi jodi needs to be exposed….”

Moreover, she stated the same thing, “This is what happens when you marry for movie promotions/ money/ work and not for love …this actor who married under the pressure of a mafia daddy was promised a movie trilogy in return for marrying papa ki pari (father’s angel), movie trilogy has been canned and now he is desperately trying to break free from the fake marriage…. But sadly no takers for him now….He must focus on his wife and daughter…this is India ek baar shaadi ho gayi toh ho gayi… aab sudhar jao (once a wedding is done there’s no turning back…rectify yourself).”


Netizens on the Reddit sub-group Bolly Blinds N Gossip called the actress “absolutely disgusting.” One online user wrote: “This lady is absolutely disgusting. Now she doesn’t even spare a baby who is months old. First, she tried to use somebody’s death for publicity now she is targeting not just Ranbir and Alia but also their family and child. How can she make comments about a couple and their personal equation so lightly on social media”.

Furthermore, the comment read as, “Real question is…how does this woman have so much free time on her hands? She tries to portray herself as this extremely hardworking actor, producer, director, award-winning female action star, etc. but she has time all day to engage in bs controversy.

On the work front, Kangana has three movies set to come out this year, including the military drama Tejas, the political drama Emergency, and the horror drama Chandramukhi 2.
