Actor Kangana Ranaut has launched a fresh attack at actor Alia Bhatt for not supporting her latest film, Manikarnika. According to a report in Pinkvilla, Kangana said made a phonecall to Alia and told her to ‘grow a spine’. Last week, at a press event for 'Gully Boy', Alia said she hopes Kangana isn't too angry at her. She said, “I hope she doesn't dislike me and I don't think she dislikes me. I don't think I have done anything intentionally to upset her. If I have, I will apologise to her on a personal level.”

In response to an interview, Kangana said she called Alia and asked why she was so scared to see her film. “I reached out to Alia (Bhatt) and asked her what makes her think 'Manikarnika' is my personal controversy, it's a film whole nation is talking about and wondering why Bollywood is keeping quiet on such a relevant work... I asked her if I can be courteous and gracious to acknowledge her requests for encouraging relevant work that she does, why is she scared to see my film.” Kangana added, “I added that she grows some spine and support an important film about woman empowerment and nationalism... if she doesn't have a voice of her own and her existence is all about being Karan Johar puppet then I don't consider her successful.”
