Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan recently joined novelist and columnist Shobhaa De at a promotional event for her new book Insatiable – My Hunger for Life. During his interaction with the media, he was asked which actress would be perfect for De’s role. The Laal Singh Chaddha actor picked actresses Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra. After this, De reminded him that he had forgotten Kangana Ranaut. Aamir called her a strong actress and agreed she would also be a great fit.

Earlier today, Kangana took to her Twitter handle and reacted the video. The actress wrote: “Bechara Aamir Khan … ha ha he tried his best to pretend like he doesn’t know that I am the only three times national award-winning actress none of those he mentioned has even one… Thank you @DeShobhaa ji I would love to play you.”
She added, “Shobaa ji and I have opposing political views but that doesn’t stop her from acknowledging my art, hard work and dedication to my craft that is the reflection of one’s integrity and value system…. Wish you the best for your new book ma’am. Sorry I have four national awards already and a Padma Shri my fans reminded I don’t even remember how many I have.”

She also took a veiled dig at the actresses mentioned by Aamir while praising Shobhaa De. A Twitter user wrote, “Not @DeShobhaa being almost offended at the names Aamir was mentioning… she had to interrupt and be like not you wanting those basic b*tches to play me.”
The actress responded, “Ha ha she is self-made, fiery and super intelligent… why would she want anyone basic to play her… I am very fortunate that she remembered me… and I would love to play Shobaa ji… It’s girl love in the world of chauvinistic men…”
