Kangana Ranaut, who has been in a long feud with filmmaker Karan Johar, praised his latest work, the war film Shershaah, on Thursday.
Shershaah is a biopic directed by Vishnu Varadhan and starring Sidharth Malhotra and Kiara Advani on Vikram Batra’s life. Captain Vikram Batra was a Kargil War hero who died in the line of duty. Kangana reportedly accused Karan, one of the film’s producers, of being the “flag-bearer of nepotism” in an episode of Koffee with Karan a few years ago.
Kangana Ranaut posted two Instagram Stories on Friday, the first one was about Captain Batra and the second about the film. “Vikram Batra, a Palampur-born Himachali boy, was a well-known and well-liked soldier.” When the tragedy occurred, word spread quickly throughout Himachal, and it swept through our hearts. I remember being traumatized for days as a child “She stated in her first blog post.
In her second post, she shared Siddharth’s look from the film and wrote “What a glorious tribute @sidmalhotra. Congratulations to the entire team. It was a big responsibility and you all excelled.”
Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions is a co-producer of the Shershaah. He discussed their relationship after the two were awarded the Padma Shri last year. He told the Mumbai Mirror that he was “too old” to hold grudges.
“There has been a lot said about Kangana and I and some kind of feud or boiling tension. But we’ve graciously greeted each other at every public event where we’ve met. Regardless of what has been said or assumed in print, I believe I am just too old and wise to exhibit maliciousness toward anyone. I applaud Kangana’s talent, art, and participation as a filmmaker.
She is an accomplished actress who is deserving of this honor. “I am esteemed to win the Padma Shri adjacent Kangana, as well as Ekta and Adnan Swami,” he said.
