Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap on Thursday shared an old video of actor Kangana Ranaut in which the actress can be seen defending him after the box office debacle of his film Bombay Velvet. Anurag said that he is “not her enemy” and that Kangana has always supported him.
In the video, Kangana opened up about one thing she would like to change about Bollywood. She said, “I have to give an example of the latest release, Bombay Velvet. It’s my friend’s movie and it didn’t do well. I have seen this happen a lot. How everyone became so venomous and so evil. It is heartbreaking to the extent that you feel you want to leave this place. I don’t understand how critics and people get so personal.”
Absolutely she did . She always stood by me . I am not her enemy . You all are . The people who are using her are . https://t.co/SsM4tsUbEs

Defending Anurag, Kangana further added, “I can say one thing. His intention was to make a sincere film for you all. It doesn’t always happen. Sabhi chuk jaate hai, hum bhi chuk jayenge kabhi (Everyone misses the mark, we will also miss the mark at some point). But I want to know what is so frustrating that everyone is just out to kill one person. This is one thing I would like to change about our industry – they get too personal with comments, gossip, and reviews.”
Sharing the video on Twitter, one user had written, “This is how #KanganaRanaut defended you @anuragkashyap72 after Bombay Velvet’s failure. But you were digging her 9-10-year-old videos to prove her wrong.” To which Anurag said, “Absolutely she did. She always stood by me. I am not her enemy . You all are. The people who are using her are.”
