While Kangana Ranaut has often earned praise for speaking up in her rows with Hrithik Roshan, Aditya Pancholi and Adhyayan Suman, this is the first time it has perhaps backfired purely because of its timing.
Singer Sona Mohapatra and several others have pointed out the actress is making these claims just before the release of her film ‘Simran’ this Friday.
While her statements against Hrithik Roshan have not got a response like always, her ex-boyfriend Aditya Pancholi got all shaken up and is now contemplating taking legal action for her ‘lies.’
And now Aditya’s wife, actress Zarina Wahab, whose figure was also drawn into the controversy, has also reacted.
Kangana has said in a recent TV interview that she confided in Zarina after Aditya’s abusive behavior got too much for her to manage. She is likewise reported to induce said that Zarina considered her like a daughter.
Kangana said in the interview that Zarina's response to her petition for help was: "I am happy that my hubby does not come home anymore."
Zarina has slammed Kangana’s claims in an interview . The actress said, “I was working through some articles on my mobile and I read Kangana has said ‘She (Zarina) used to treat her (Kangana) like a daughter… This is wholly false! When I recognized she was dating my hubby, how could I say she was like my daughter? That is beyond ridiculous. Normally, I don’t respond to such things, but these two things have been really troubling! I was very upset when I heard about it. She was dating my husband (Aditya) for four-and-a-half-years. How could I say she was like my daughter?
She has told national television that she’s (Kangana) like my daughter (Sana)… What nonsense is Kangana talking about?”
About Kangana confiding in her post Aditya’s alleged abusive and possessive behavior, Zarina said, “There was no question of that occurrence. If she was dating my hubby, how could she come to me? People who talk like this should have some wits. I met Kangana a few times because my hubby desired me to get her to Sanjay Leela Bhansal.
Foremost of all, I never talk about my problems yet with my own sisters. Who is she (Kangana) to me that I would talk about with her whether I was happy that my hubby was not arriving home?
She continued, What nonsense is she singing about? I should not articulate anything about her. There are two things that really bug me. I am not that stupid to treat her like my daughter! Am I going around blindfolded, oblivious to the goings on in the universe? I recognize what went on, but I don’t react and that’s a different matter. Everybody has a different style of dealing with life, and my path is different from others. I understand this on Google and I reacted. Otherwise, I am the final person to react.”
While Aditya, on one hand, seemed angry about Kangana’s claims, he had also expressed serious concerns for what the actress was saying in recent interviews.
Zarina echoed his views, “If I start talking like her, and so what is the dispute between her and me? I will say only one thing. She recognizes and so do we what is in Kangana's past. Only today, seeing the successful place she is in, I wish she had acted in a more dignified manner... If she had acted in a more dignified manner, I would have wished it. I don’t require to counter any allegation.
What else can I tell you about it? If she found Aditya to be such a tough person, why was she with him?
They were together for four-and-a-half years. When I first found out what she was reading, I felt bad for her actually. This is not the time that she should talk. Now what can I say, she can do whatever she wishes, but till today, I have never wished ill for anyone.”Does Zarina feel Kangana is making these claims to advance her film ‘Simran’? She stated, “I believe she is promoting her movie. She should not say such things. What is the stage of digging up stuff that is 14 to 15 years previous? Everyone knows she was a battle back then, and I don’t want to speak more or less it.
There's really no point talking about it. We don’t want to read anything right today because whatever we say will affect her film as it’s getting to release soon, so let things be for today.
She continued, When the proper time comes, we will talk.” It would be interesting to find out if all these sensational claims actually help Kangana’s ‘Simran’ in opening well at the corner office.
