Sonam Kapoor's statement on the recently-concluded Koffee With Karan Season 4 has got her backlash from the most unexpected quarter. Kangana Ranaut, who hasn't seen the episode recently heard that B-town's fashionista said in the episode, "If you're not good looking, they think you are a good actor. Just because you look ordinary and you talk loud doesn't mean you're a good actor." While many in B-town who consider themselves good actors (everyone does) were miffed with this statement, it is only Kangana who had reacted strongly to it.
Kangana says, "Sonam has said that people who act well are ugly, I have heard. So, do I get the crown of the ugliest person? Because after watching Queen, people have been telling me that I act really well. So according to Sonam, I am the ugliest actor in Bollywood today. And well, I accept that with all the gratitude and humbleness."
Kangana goes on to say that it's high time that Hindi films have real people on the screen, "I feel that Sonam really needs to get her facts right about acting. Actors aren't models. It's a different technique to convey expressions and emotions and it has got nothing to do with the looks. And we should have a variety of actors just for the sake of casting. We don't have right casting in our country. It's high time we git rid of this six-pack brigade and glamorous looking people. We should get real people in because the stories we show on-screen are about real people. And that's how the movies will be genuine and heartfelt. Story telling needs to get honest."
That's not all. Kangy also held Sonam responsible for our cinema not being so genuine today. "If at all our cinema is not good today, people like Sonam should be held responsible. There are people out there, who might not fit into that Vogue kind of space, but they have all the right to be an actor," she adds.
Kangana is completely in her Revolver Rani avatar, and she is firing away from her mouth!
