It has been ages that we see Kangana Ranaut in the headlines for some or other controversies going around her and it seems the actress enjoys it. This time the controversy is regarding her credits for dialogue writing in her upcoming movie Simran. The movie has been directed by Hansal Mehta and showcases Kangana in a different role. Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut sought to dispel the controversy over the writing of the story and dialogues for upcoming film “Simran”, saying it was actually writer Apurva Asrani who suggested she take credit for the dialogues. Kangana was speaking at the trailer launch of the film here on Tuesday and clarified that Apurva has been given his due credit.
The actress at the press release of the movie cleared all the speculations that there are no dues pending, somehow people make it look like Apurva has not be given his credit, that is not true. Talking about the contract, she says that it was made exactly the way Apurva wanted it to be, and it fact Apurva was the one who suggested Kangana to take additional credit for dialogue writing.Apurva took to Facebook to raise objection to it and slammed the actress for taking undue credit.
While giving a little insight on her character in the film, she said: “Though my character, Praful Patel, is a girl who works in a housekeeping department, she has big dreams and ambitions. She always fights for her rights and she is unstoppable. There is a similarity between her and my personal life.” The actress went on to say: “This is unfortunate that in every step of my life I had to fight for my right. And I have been doing that all my life. It is okay if you call me a fighter or a rebel, this is how I am. I do not take offence on those names but I will stand for my right, be it by fighting or in any other way.”
The director of the movie cornered all the rumours and speculations in regards to the movie saying that they are “false, malicious and totally fabricated”. Mehta dismissed the reports that Kangana had taken over editing of the trailer after being unhappy over the first cut. “All this speculation is false, malicious and totally fabricated. I collaborate closely with my team and my actors are an integral part of that collaboration. It angers me that every time some malicious gossip has to be spread people meaninglessly drag Kangana into their stupid machinations. She is a valued friend, actor and collaborator. Period,” Mehta said in a statement. “I’m even more hurt that some malicious person chooses to drag my relationship with Vishal Bhardwaj into this malice. Vishal is one of my dearest friends and if I am making films today it is because of him. I would never say anything that could remotely even hurt or upset somebody I love so dearly and to whom I am so grateful,” he added.
Co-producer Bhushan Kumar said he is saddened by the reports as they put the film in a negative light. “We are very saddened with this news. Her (Kangana) sitting on the edit table is completely false. We all work as a team and her feedback on every promo and plan is crucial. At the end, the film is a director’s vision and the film campaign will stay close to that only,” Kumar said. “Simran” is set to release on September 15.
