Famous South director Krish a.k.a Radha Krishna Jagarlamudi has had the opportunity to work with some fantastic Bollywood actresses. From Hema Malini to Kangana Ranaut and Vidya Balan, he’s worked with truly the finest stars. However, his Manikarnika controversy with Kangana Ranaut may have left him with a bad taste. In an exclusive interaction with Krish, we prod him about working with Kangana on Manikarnika and Vidya on the NTR biopic. Though he refused to compare them, the difference in his experience with the two was night and day. Read on to find out what he had to say…
Talking about Vidya and his experience with her on the NTR biopic, Krish reveals to us exclusively, “Vidya Balan is one of the greatest actresses. She is also one of the nicest human beings. I don’t want to compare them, sorry. But Vidya is amazing to work with. Everyday she comes and lights up the environment. She doesn’t know Telugu, but every evening I send her lines on WhatsApp. And the way she comes prepared on the sets, we all wondered if she is fooling us. We used to tell her ‘Ma’am you know Telugu, but you are not telling us.’ She just used to laugh and make us laugh.”
While he doesn’t say anything directly, Krish does mention how Kangana and Vidya treat their teams in a different manner. As the filmmakers adds, “During the promotions, the way she (Vidya) conducts herself and carries her team, is different. She respects one and all, it’s great to see that. In one the interview, she credited my associate director Pallavi for teaching her all the lines. This is something you will see very rarely. I’ve worked with Hema Malini too. They are superstars. The way they take care of each other, the way they respect their team, it is different.”
We will let the interpretation of his words up to you, but clearly, you know he’s had a whole lot different experience with Kangana. Krish did mention, “She was very sweet with me initially. I like certain friction and that was there. But later, everything changed once the Sonu Sood issue came out.” What do you have to say about these statements made by Krish?

Pulwama latest news: Navjot Singh Sidhu banned by IFTDA; won’t even be allowed to enter Film City
Navjot Singh Sidhu gets into more trouble post his remarks on the Pulwama attack
Navjot Singh Sidhu has been in hot waters ever since he made insensitive comments over the Pulwama terror attacks. First, he was sacked by Sony Entertainment TV from The Kapil Sharma Show as his unsavoury comments had left everyone fuming on social media. Then Sidhu faced protest inside the Punjab Assembly and the situation was so bad that the assembly members burnt his photos and the opposition even demanded his resignation. And as if all this wasn’t enough, now IFTDA has passed a resolution to not work with Sidhu again.
The Indian Film & Television Directors’ Association (IFTDA) has released an official statement on the same wherein they have also slammed the cricketer-turned-politician quite strongly for his remarks. Though Sidhu recently tried to justify his comments, looks like nothing is going to help him at the moment. Getting banned by IFTDA is indeed a big blow and now we are wondering what will be Sidhu’s next step professionally as things are going to be very tough for him henceforth. Also, as per latest updates, Navjot Singh Sidhu has been banned from entering the premises of Mumbai’s Film City too.
This action was taken by the Federation of Western India Cine Employees on Thursday. Well, all we can say is that Sidhu should have been very careful before commenting on the terrorist attack. But it’s too late. Anyway, the remark that has got him so much flak was, “For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual?” The former cricketer said this after more than 40 CPRF jawans were killed in a deadly terrorist attack in Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Kangana Ranaut urges PM Narendra Modi to scrap Article 370 in Jammu & Kashmir – watch video
Kangana Ranaut, who has been very vocal about the Pulwama terror attack, now wants Prime Minister Narendra Modi to scrap article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir. She has also called for a ban on Pakistani artistes!
While most Bollywood celebrities stay away from commenting on political issues, actress Kangana Ranaut is not one of them. If there is something on her mind, the curly-haired babe will openly say it without thinking twice. And though this gets her into trouble more often, Kangana doesn’t care. And why should she? After all, it’s her unapologetic, bindass attitude that makes her the darling of the masses. So recently when the National award-winning actress was spotted at the Mumbai airport; she once again spoke her heart out and didn’t shy from voicing her opinion.
Talking about the Pulwama terror attack, Kangana said, “First of all we should stop calling it an attack on our soldiers. It’s an attack on each one of us because the soldiers are our defence.” She went on to add, “We should use this to do something constructive. So it’s my sincere request to our Prime Minister Narendra Modi that he should scrap the article 370 completely. I feel after so many years of Independence, no state in our country should face confusion as to where they belong.”
Further, when asked about Bollywood’s decision to not release films in Pakistan and ban their artists, Kangana had a swift and strong reply. She said that the country comes first and then everything else. She also pointed out that though the audience in Pakistan loves Bollywood films, the Hindi film fraternity is with their country, their government and soldiers. She also mentioned that India should set an example for Pakistan by leaving everything else behind and being with the country more than anything else.

Kangana Ranaut gets a stinging open letter from Pakistan post her Pulwama attack remarks
A Pakistani journalist has slammed Kangana Ranaut for her remarks following the Pulwama terror attack
Apart from being a terrific actress, Kangana Ranaut is also known for her bindass and outspoken attitude. And maybe that’s one reason why she often finds herself surrounded by controversies. As if all the hoopla around her last film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi wasn’t enough, the actress has once again found herself in hot waters courtesy her recent comment on Pakistan over the Pulwama terror attack. Pakistani journalist Shabana Mahfooz has written an open letter severely criticizing the National award-winning actress for saying “Pakistan ban is not the focus, Pakistan destruction is” in one of her interviews.
Addressed directly to Kangana, Shabana has first praised the actress for her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi in the letter and then has slammed her for that very particular statement. Further, the Pakistani journalist has asked in the open letter why her country gets blamed for every attack that takes place in India. That’s not all! She has also questioned Kangana’s intention while pointing out the whole Shabana Azmi episode. Reportedly, the senior actress was supposed to travel to Karachi for a 2-day literary event but she cancelled her trip following the deadly attack that shook India. Commenting on the same, Kangana had said, “Why did they organise an event in Karachi in the first place?”
Basically, Mahfooz has said in her letter that if Kangana hates Pakistan so much then she shouldn’t have released her film Manikarnika in the country. It’s quite hypocritical of her to point fingers at others when her own production venture is running in the Pakistani cinema halls. In the end, Shabana has advised Kangana to concentrate on her controversies related to Manikarnika and not anything else.
Now we wonder how Kangana will react to this open letter. Or she won’t at all. Let’s wait and watch.
