Kangana Ranaut Winter style trends with her plaid overcoat – Kangana Ranaut is an Indian actress who works in Hindi films. One of the highest-paid actresses in the country, she is the recipient of several awards, including three National Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards. Ranaut has featured five times in Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 list. Kangana Ranaut talked about the non-payment of dues of workers, who have worked on her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, saying she had warned the makers she would not promote the movie if the issue is not resolved. The actor said labourers and technicians are “devalued” in the film industry and she would not tolerate such behaviour towards them. “It is very sad. I have always opposed such practices. Labourers and technicians are devalued in the film industry. I don’t know why actors get unnecessary attention and importance in the film industry and because of that I want to be a technician,” she said.
“I feel they are absolutely devalued. I want to venture into writing and direction as they are unsung heroes of the film industry. When such things it should not be tolerated,” Kangana said here during an event. On Thursday, Federation of Western India Cine Employees, had said that the makers of Manikarnika are yet to clear dues of approximately Rs. 1.5 crore to the workers and junior artistes.
On Friday producer Kamal Jain refuted the allegations saying that all the legitimate and due payments have been made, except of one vendor, who is arm-twisting them. “One disputed vendor, who has already been paid 70 per cent of his dues, is illegitimately now using the union authority to arm twist us and disrupted our film shoot, which is completely illegal, untenable under the law and clearly is harassment to us and our team,” he said in a statement.
