Gully Boy, Andhadhun, Manikarnika & Super Deluxe have been selected for Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival. Kangana Ranaut has given her reaction to the same.
Kangana Ranaut is not known to be someone to mince her words. She's unapologetic and her unabashed response always makes it to headlines. This year, the actress delivered a hit film in Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi. There are several instances where producers have disregarded women-led films as they felt it doesn't do business the way a male hero's film would work at the box office. But slowly, strong female driven films led by Kangana, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and others are working at the ticket windows.
Manikarnika, which received rave reviews, also turned out to be the third highest grossing female-centric project. Now, the film has also been selected for the Bucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, Asia's largest film event. Along with Kangana's film, Alia Bhatt-Ranveer Singh starrer Gully Boy, Ayushmann Khurrana-Tabu's AndhaDhun will also be screened at the festival.
Kangana Ranaut, who's currently enjoying her small break with her family in Himachal Pradesh is elated with the news. But she also hit out at detractors for the step treatment meted out to her and her films. She exclusively told Pinkvilla, "We are thrilled with this development, especially when Gully Boy was hailed by the entire industry and there was not a single word by anyone on Manikarnika. The movie mafia tried to kill this film but for Manikarnika to get commercial success and now international recognisation along with other celebrated films is a big slap on movie mafia’s face. You can't stop a good film especially in this time and age when the world is all one big family because of social media."
