    New Delhi (Sputnik): Along with the mysterious death case of Sushant Singh Rajput’s, the debate about Bollywood biggies supporting nepotism has been jolting famous names in the Hindi movie industry into sleepless nights. Bollywood’s curly haired actress Kangana Ranaut has been leading this debate for over two years now.

    Over the weekend, Team Kangana Ranaut -- the official representation of the 33-year-old Himalayan beauty on social media – tagged famed tinsel town stars Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ayushmann Khurrana as “skirt chaser”, “psycho witch” and "bootlicking outsider" respectively on Twitter.

    ​Kangana’s barbed remarks towards the Bollywood celebs did not go down well with fans, who are now requesting the actors take legal steps against the Padma Shree-awarded actress. Padma Shree is India’s fourth highest civilian honour that was presented to Kangana in January 2020 for excelling in the performing arts.

    ​​Against the backdrop of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, which is now being investigated by India’s top probe agency Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Kangana has blamed Bollywood biggies and star kids for not giving equal work opportunities to outsiders.

    In her recent interviews, Kangana has lashed out at several actors including Tapasee Pannu, Swara Bhaskar, Sara Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan for quietly supporting nepotism in Bollywood.

    Of the three actors targeted by Kangana, 37-year-old Ranbir is the great grandson of Bollywood royalty Raj Kapoor and the son of veteran actor Rishi Kapoor who succumbed to illness and died earlier in April. With his charming looks and a jaw-line to die for, Ranbir has a “playboy” image in India’s Mumbai-based film industry. The versatile actor has dated top Bollywood actresses including Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif and is currently in a relationship with B-town’s dimpled girl next door Alia Bhatt.

    Coming from a completely different world, singer-actor Ayushmann Khurrana made it big in Bollywood all on his own. His is a story of a simple boy from Chandigarh who entered the entertainment world via reality TV shows and established himself as the brand ambassador for “out-of-the-box” scripts that end up doing wonders at the box office.
