Kangana Ranaut slams movie mafia as ‘Jallikattu’ makes it to the Oscars: Indian films aren’t just about 4 film families

Actress Kangana Ranaut, who is known for voicing her views on social media has often grabbed the audience’s attention over several topics. The actress took a dig at movie mafia as she congratulated the team of ‘Jallikattu’ on making it to the Oscars.

On social media, Kangana tweeted, “All the scrutiny/ bashing Bullydawood gang got is finally yielding some results, Indian films aren’t just about 4 film families, movie mafia gang is hiding in their houses and letting juries do their job and congratulations team #Jallikattu.”

The actress earlier shared her opinions and her support for the regional film industries and called for a change in perception about the Hindi film industry being called India’s superior film industry. ‘Best of dubbed regional films don’t get pan India release but dubbed Hollywood films get the mainstream release it’s alarming. The reason is the atrocious quality of most Hindi films and their monopoly over theatre screens also media created aspirational imagine for Hollywood films,’ she wrote.

Meanwhile, it was on Wednesday after that filmmaker Lijo Jose Pellissery’s directorial ‘Jallikattu’ was announced as India’s official entry to the 93rd Academy Awards in the Best International Feature Film category.

On the other hand, the Bombay high court has directed Mumbai police to not take any action against Kangana and her sister Rangoli Chandel for their alleged inflammatory social media posts and have asked them to appear before the Bandra police on January 8.

On the work front, the actress has several new projects lined up which are at various stages of filming/completion like a biopic based on the former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa, named ‘Thalaivi’, Sarvesh Mewara directorial ‘Tejas’ and ‘Dhaakad’ directed by Razneesh Ghai.

Meanwhile, the news of Lijo Jose Pellissery’s directorial ‘Jallikattu’ entry as India’s official entry to the Oscars came late Wednesday.
