Kangana Ranaut has again taken aim at actress Alia Bhatt, this time alongwith her boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor and co-star Ranveer Singh. Kangana is particularly upset with these Bollywood A-listers for not being vocal about their political views.

Calling Ranbir Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt "irresponsible" for their apolitical stand on issues, Kangana said that film personalities should take interest in matters of national importance.

While promoting their film Gully Boy, Ranveer and Alia had said they do not have any political views or ideology, prompting backlash from a section of people on social media.

On Sunday, Kangana reiterated that while there are "zero per cent chances" of her entering politics, actors should voice concerns on issues around them.

"I was watching Ranveer and Alia's interview where they said, 'Why should we speak about politics? We haven't done anything.' It doesn't work like that. You have to be responsible.

"Ranbir Kapoor was telling somebody, 'Mere ghar mei toh bijli, paani aata hai (My house gets electricity and water). Why should I (care about) politics?' You have this house because of this country. It's the money of the citizens with which you buy a Mercedes. How can you talk like that? This is irresponsible," Kangana told reporters at the success party of her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi.

She said an actor's responsibility does not end with featuring in a film. "Even if my career goes away, I don't mind. If there is electricity and water coming in my home that doesn't mean I don't care about anyone else."

The actor said she wondered why career was "so important to these people that they don't care about the country at all". "We should take interest in national matters. It's silly to think that I shouldn't be asked about anything, (thinking) 'what if I lose an endorsement?' This is stupid."

In an interview last month, Kangana had spoken out about how people in the industry, including Alia and Aamir Khan, did not support her during the release of Manikarnika, while she had turned up for the screenings of Dangal, Secret Superstar and Raazi.

This was followed by Alia saying that she will apologise to Kangana on a personal level if she was upset with her.
