Manikarnika: Anupam Kher, Paresh Rawal defend Kangana Ranaut after actress is trolled for riding mechanical horse
Anupam Kher and Paresh Rawal slammed a Twitter user for trolling Kangana Ranaut for riding a mechanical horse during the shoot of an action-sequence in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi
Anupam Kher and Paresh Rawal have come out in support of Kangana Ranaut, days after a video showing the actress riding a mechanical horse surfaced online. Soon after the behind-the-scenes video from Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi was unveiled, social media erupted with memes and comments, trolling her for her stunt. One user wrote captioned the video, "Define Kangana's brand of nationalism"
Anupam replied to the user's Twitter thread, addressing Kangana as a "self-made actress". Slamming the Twitter user for using Kangana's video for their "fifteen-minute fame", Kher wrote that Kangana would be remembered for decades for her contribution to the movies.
How much venom this man has against a self made actress #KanganaRanaut!! This is called ‘acting’ idiot. Actors all over the world do that. That is their job. She will be remembered for decades for her hard work in movies. While you got your fifteen minute fame by using her name. pic.twitter.com/y6vRo1eZfu

The user replied to Kher's tweet, and linked a video featuring Kangana and Anupam.
Dr Dang, No one is doubting #KanganaRanuat's acting ability or urs. Your 'concern' for Kashmiri Pandits or your speaking out against Pakistan (while peddling ur movie there when needed) is well documented. BTW if u didn't get that tweet- then watch this ▶️https://t.co/9mDhbwvyxZ — Akash Banerjee (@akashbanerjee) February 25, 2019
Paresh Rawal, too, defended Kangana in his tweet.
According to these dimwits and pinheads they believe that superman and Batman in Hollywood films are actually flying and it’s not some camera trick or CG effects ...! https://t.co/9Ko4UdJru0

The viral video showed Kangana Ranaut ride a dummy horse for a war sequence in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.
Saif Ali Khan on replacing Abhishek Bachchan in Bunty Aur Babli 2: "I was told it is a different movie and it is not the same character (that Bachchan played). Aditya Chopra obviously knows what he is doing, so my character has been tweaked because I was playing it."
John Abraham, once an experimental actor and symbol of unassuming masculinity, reduced to a demolishing machine today
Ironically, John Abraham was a punch-up, anti-establishment emblem sex symbol in his prime. The most unobvious of male leads — handsome, and yet approaching something other than the sum of his handsomeness.
Bunty Aur Babli 2 is not a sequel we didn't need. But it's a follow-up that needed much more.
