‘Kangana Ranaut’ the Original ‘Pokiri’ Girl?Jul 11, 2020 02:31 PM
The war of words over nepotism is still continuing in Bollywood. Started with Sushant Singh Rajput’s suicidal death, the debate is going on and even celebrities are getting crisscrossed over the issue. Actress Kangana Ranaut is hiding no bullets when it comes to picking up her targets in attacking the Bollywood biggies.
Recently, Director Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter Pooja Bhatt posted a video countering Kangana’s attack on her father. In this video, the actress is seen hugging Mukesh Bhatt the producer of the film for winning the Film Fare award for her debut film ‘ Gangster’. ‘Guess videos lie too? Upside-down face besides, it takes two to battle. I leave the denials & accusations to more evolved souls. I rather put forth facts!’ expressed Pooja.
Pooja Bhatt also mentioned that Kangana might have been discovered by Anurag Basu but Vishesh Films supported and invested in his vision. The team of Kangana Ranaut has given a counter reply to Pooja. They revealed that the actress also had another option to make her debut in films if it was not done through Mahesh Bhatt’s production.
‘Kangana had also auditioned for Pokiri, alongside Gangster & got selected for that as well. Pokiri went on to become an all-time blockbuster, so you’re thinking that because of Gangster she is who she is, is totally not working. Water finds its level.’ clarified the team.
So, it is clear that Kangana Ranaut would have been the heroine of Pokiri in place of Ileana. Later it was also remade in Bollywood as ‘Wanted’ with Salman Khan in the lead. However, director Puri Jagannadh has cast her in ‘EkNiranjan’with Prabhas in Tollywood later. But the movie did not become a success. And this whole issue has brought ‘Pokiri’ into the news once again.
