Kangana Ranaut celebrated the commercial success of Shah Rukh Khan‘s Pathaan just hours after tweeting about Bollywood’s obsession with box office numbers. Kangana said at the wrap party for her upcoming film Emergency that films like Pathaan should always do well at the box office.
She said in Hindi, “Pathaan acha kar rahi hai. Aisi films chalni chahiye aur I feel ki jo hamare Hindi cinema wale piche reh gaye hain, har insaan apne level pe koshish kar raha hai”
Kangana reactivated her Twitter account earlier this week. The actor was suspended from the platform a few years ago for “repeated violations” of its hateful and abusive behaviour policies.
Pathaan is estimated to have earned Rs 100 crore on its first day of release, putting it in contention for the highest opening day ever for a Bollywood film. Kangana, who once boasted that she has delivered the biggest box office hits featuring female protagonists in her Twitter bio, has altered it to describe herself as the ‘pioneer of parallel female centric cinema in India’.
