Kangana Ranaut, on Sunday, went on to accuse Filmfare of being 'unethical' and 'corrupt'. Sharing multiple stories on Instagram, Kangana decided to take legal action against the publication. In her first story, she wrote, "I've banned unethical, corrupt and totally unfair practices like @filmfare since 2014, but since I have been getting many calls from them for attending their award function this year as they want to give me award for Thalaivii... I am shocked to know that they are still nominating me. It is beneath my dignity, work ethics and value system to encourage such corrupt practices in anyway, that is why I have decided to sue @filmfare ... thanks."
Later, she shared, "Back in 2013, Filmfare clearly told me that if I don’t attend their award show or dance on the stage, I won’t get awards and I made clear to them back in 2013 that I will never attend anything which is morally deprived and unethical. So when they know I won’t attend and as a policy they won’t give awards to those who don’t attend so why nominations?? Making desperate blackmailing calls to attend awards after pitted against mediocre work… what is the purpose of all this."
Kangana added, "My work is worship for me. I gained 20 kgs for Thalaivii, got high cholestrol and borderline thyroid as well, I learnt Bharatnatyam and Tamil for two years, my craft is not for creativity poor, morally corrupt unethical bunch of mafia clowns to exploit.. Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide he too blamed these corrupt award shows and magazine giants who operate on movie mafia guidelines.. enough is enough I have decided not to let them exploit my work."
Hours after Filmfare withdrew her nomination from the Best Actress category, Kangana reacted on her Instagram stories, "@filmfare has finally withdrew my bets actress nominations, thanks to everyone who supported me in this fight against corrupt system but this doesn't stop me from taking legal action against them…my endeavour is to put an end to these unethical practices and stop such malicious award shows…see you in court @filmfare."
