Kangana Ranaut applauded the decision to send Malayalam film Jallikattu as India’s official entry for the Best International Feature Film category at the 93rd Academy Awards.She called it the result of the scrutiny that the Bollywood ‘mafia’ is being subjected to and suggested that they were unable to tilt the scales in their favor through lobbying.
“All the scrutiny/ bashing Bullydawood gang got is finally yielding some results, Indian films aren’t just about 4 film families, movie mafia gang is hiding in their houses and letting juries do their job and congratulations team #Jallikattu,” the three-time National Award winner wrote on Twitter.
In September, Kangana came out in support of the regional film industries and called the perception of the Hindi film industry being India’s most superior film industry ‘wrong’.
“Best of dubbed regional films don’t get pan India release but dubbed Hollywood films get the mainstream release it’s alarming.The reason is the atrocious quality of most Hindi films and their monopoly over theatre screens also media created aspirational imagine for Hollywood films,” she wrote.
Jallikattu, directed by Lijo Jose Pellissery, is based on a short story written by Hareesh titled Maoist.
