Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who has been a vocal critic of nepotism in Bollywood, recently took a jibe at the bigwigs of the industry and called them out for ‘sabotaging’ the careers of outsiders like her and Sushant Singh Rajput. Ranaut’s digital team has also been making headlines for their controversial tweets and claims. On Thursday, Kangana Ranaut’s team took a jibe at Kareena Kapoor Khan by retweeting an old video, where the actress couldn’t answer a question about India’s Mars Orbiter Mission Mangalyaan.
The original tweet also had video of Sushant SIngh Rajput talking about his telescope. It read: “Choose your heroes wisely”
In the video, Kareena Kapoor, on being asked about Magalyaan, is seen getting stumped at the question. She says, “What, what, what? Say again, I didn’t understand. Say it in English.” After the person repeats the same question in English, Kareena says, “Very scientific question! It’s a great day for us. I also want to go to space. Meri bhi yeh hi ichcha hai. Mujhe bhi le chalo saath mein.”
The team’s dig received mixed reactions on Twitter. While some called out Bebo for not knowing about ‘what’s happening in India’, others questioned the ‘Panga’ actress’ team.
A user wrote, “I mean what conclusions do you want to draw here @KanganaTeam ?? SSR was a science student. He was always interested in space related things.And Kareena is like not even close to Sushant in that matter. What kareena said is completely justified and said ‘Its’ a big day for us’.”
Another commented, “C’mon they are actors, why are they supposed to know about space missions ….if they know that’s great but no need to troll them if they don’t. Besides, kareena is a wonderful actress.”
“Ohh so having keen interest in space technology and and astrophysics translates into being a good or a bad actor ? Don’t match totally unrelated clips to fool people. SSR was a good actor and it doesn’t make Kareena as a bad one,” read a tweet.
