Kangana Ranaut has lately been in the news for calling out the hypocrisy present in the entertainment industry post the sudden demise of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Bollywood’s ‘Controversy Queen’ took a short break from waging a war against nepotism and congratulated fellow actor Ali Fazal (who happens to be the partner of her Panga co-star Richa Chadha) for his upcoming Hollywood film Death on the Nile.
Bollywood actor Ali Fazal recently treated fans to the first trailer of his upcoming Hollywood film ‘Death on the Nile’, directed by acclaimed British director Kenneth Branagh.
Although Fazal’s appearance in the trailer is very short, the actor reportedly plays a pivotal role in the film which is apparently believed to even change the way Indians are portrayed on the big screen. Among the many congratulatory messages sent the Fukrey actor’s way, one of them was from Kangana Ranaut.
Replying to a tweet sharing the trailer, the Queen actor wrote, “Congratulations @alifazal9.”

“In Hollywood Asian people get break only and only based on their auditions, what @alifazal9 has got is indeed a big break, we may have different ideologies but art will always bind us together, I have huge admiration for your breakthrough @alifazal9,” she continued in another tweet.
