MUMBAI: Bollywood's outspoken actress Kangana Ranaut has yet again pinched  Alia Bhatt, calling  her Gully Boy performance 'mediocre'.

Ranaut seems to be still   at odd with  dashing star Alia Bhatt as she passed some  snarky comments about her   performance in Gully Boy. She even went on to say, "it is embarrassing to be compared to her".

Interestingly, Kangana stands first  in a recent poll  for the best performance by a female actor in 2019 so far,  conducted by an entertainment website 'Bollywood Life'.

Kangana won the poll with 37% votes for her performance in Manikarnika, while Alia stood second with 33% votes from  fans.

When the publication contacted Kangana for reaction on beating Alia, she said, “I am embarrassed...What is there to beat in Gully Boy performance ....same snappy muh phat girl... Bollywood’s idea of a fiery girl, woman empowerment and good acting, spare me this embarrassment, please. Media have taken filmy kids love too far. Stop pampering mediocre work or else bar will never be raised.”

Alia’s work in Gully Boy received applause from admirers and film critics alike. The Zoya Akhtar film was screened at the prestigious Berlin Film Festival, raking in highly positive review from international publications as well. 

Kangana’s Manikarnika got lukewarm reviews, with many critics praising her performance but bemoaning the predated filmmaking techniques and lack of more strong characters.

Earlier, Manikarnika's actress had alleged Alia and other Bollywood's stars for asking her to attend the premieres of their films and skipping the screening of her films. She also called out Alia and Ranbir Kapoor for being apolitical and called them irresponsible for not voicing their opinions on politics and social issues.
