He praised her as a fantastic actress and one of India's most renowned artists, highlighting her outstanding previous work. He also specifically commended Kangana's performance in "Simran" despite the film's commercial performance.
In a rare occurrence, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap also expressed his admiration for Kangana Ranaut. He described her as one of the finest actors in the industry, offering his praise for her remarkable talent. "She is quite sincere when it comes to work, but she has other issues. Nobody can deny her skill. Nobody can take away what she has in herself as an actor or as a genuine creative person, but it is difficult to deal with her," added the director.
Indeed, Kangana Ranaut has had her share of disagreements with fellow celebrities, but she has also received appreciation and support from many in the industry. In recent times, she has been seen more frequently at Bollywood events and gatherings.
