Kangana Ranaut’s scandalous statements on a recent show have provided enough fodder for the industry circles to keep buzzing.

While a few Bollywood personalities have resorted to taking sly digs at the actress, a certain lot has gone all out to lambast Kangana.

Now, Apurva Asrani, who had made headlines over sharing writing credit of the actress’ upcoming release – Simran - has fired fresh salvo at the actress.

Apurva opened up on his stance on the controversy and told a website, “I have fought to retain my credit because it's my story. What Ranaut did, irrespective of her claims, is what all good artists do. She added value to what I had already written. But the way she's played this narrative of dismissing my work and questioning my credibility as a writer is nothing short of character assassination. It has hurt me and my reputation. All I want to say is that people shouldn't take her at face value — they should question her. She shouldn't just be treated as a beacon of feminism. There is a lot of duplicity, lot of lies, lots of false allegations. I want people to see her for what she is, not what she projects herself to be."

He also expressed that he feels sympathetic towards Hansal Mehta. “I can't say how I'm feeling. It's a mix of hurt, love and understanding. I had thought he'd have my back when I stood upto her. Wish he had stood upto the bully too. Maybe I will understand better when I'm in his shoes, I don't know. But we have finally moved on to newer partnerships and I think that is healthy. I wish him the best,” Apurva added.
