Kangana Ranaut accuses Taapsee Pannu of defending nepotism, latter shares a cryptic post about 'bitter people'; Check out

From the past few days, especially after the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput, the Bollywood industry has become nothing less than a battlefield. People are divided into two because of their opinion of nepotism and how star kids have been snatching the work of real talents in the industry. The alleged 'movement against nepotism' has been led by Manikarnika actress Kangana Ranaut, who has always criticized some Bollywood artists of running a 'mafia' and ganging up against outsiders. And now, Kangana attacks Taapsee Pannu for allegedly supporting nepotism and star kids.

After a Twitter user shared some screenshots of Taapsee's statements in the past, Kangana's official Twitter handle retweeted it. The user wrote, "Taapsee was busy attacking Kangana & defending star kids in 2017. Now, She wants to be the messiah for outsiders. Still, she chose to blame audiences and failed to name those who replaced or kicked her out. Guess, it's easy to call out the government rather than her own industry."
To that, Kangana's team wrote, "Many chaploos outsiders consistently try to derail d movements started by Kangana,dey want to b in movie mafia good books,dey gt movies & awards fr attacking Kangana & dey take part in open harassment f a woman,shame on u @taapsee u reap the fruits f hr struggles bt gang up on hr.”
A couple of hours after Kangana's tweet, Taapsee shared some cryptic posts on her social media talking about 'bitter people'. Her posts read, "A couple of things have followed in my life , especially the last few months. Really helped in seeing life in a better light. Brought me a lot of peace and perspective so sharing it.” One of the posts also read, "Bitter people. God loves them and so should we. Pray for them. They will find something negative to say about anything positive. They can’t be happy for you because they are disgusted with themselves. Don’t become bitter with them, become better and pray for their growth and maturity.”

Actor Anil Kapoor recalls the time Saroj Khan turned newcomer Madhuri Dixit into a phenomenal dancer in just two weeks

Anil Kapoor was at the peak of his career in the 1980s and 90s of the Hindi film industry. Kapoor has worked with almost every celebrity from the industry and has fond memories with most of them. On Saturday Anil Kapoor shared memory with the late dancer and choreographer Saroj Khan. Khan passed away on Thursday night due to a cardiac arrest. In his post, Kapoor thanked Saroj Khan for her guidance and also credited her for making him look like a better dancer than he is.
Speaking to Mumbai Mirror Anil said, "My leading ladies, including Sridevi, Madhuri, or Aishwarya (Rai) were fabulous dancers while I’m technically not a dancer-dancer. So, I’m grateful to Sarojji that on screen I did not come across as any less,” he said.
The actor also recalled the time Saroj Khan trained Madhuri Dixit for the song Ek Do Teen. He said, “A year after Mr. India, Tezaab released. Madhuri (Dixit) was still a relative newcomer when we handed her over to Sarojji. After two weeks of rehearsal, she called Chandra (director N Chandra) and me to Satyam Hall and Madhuri performed to Ek Do Teen for us. I was blown over by the moves and the energy,” he said. “We shot the song in Mehboob Studio and watching it, I was like, “Oh God, what do I do!” I got them to shoot a male version with me which was not there in the script in front of where Shah Rukh’s (Khan) bungalow stands today."
The Nayak actor also said that Saroj Khan touched everyone's heart with her grace and artistry.
