In AN earlier interview to Bollywood Life, Kangana had same that she finds comparisons between herself and Alia embarrassing as a result of she found Alia’s critically acclaimed performance in gully Boy ‘mediocre’.

Media have taken filmy children love too so much. Stop pampering mediocre work or else bar can ne’er be raised.”
Kangana’s animosity towards Alia goes back months, once she alleged that the Raazi star didn’t reciprocate her gesture and help promote Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. Kangana had said then that she had referred to asAlia up, and created her feelings known. Suggesting that Alia could be a puppet of producer Karan Johar, Kangana said she’d told her ‘to grow a spine’. “I reached out to Alia and asked her what makes her think Manikarnika is my personal controversy, it’s a movie whole nation is talking regarding and wondering why film industry is keeping quiet on such a relevant work……I asked her if I will be courteous and gracious to acknowledge her requests for encouraging relevant work that she does, why is she thusscaredto check my film,” she had said.
