You're a legend: Bollywood stands up for Urmila Matondkar after Kangana Ranaut's 'soft porn star' remark

Kangana Ranaut, in the past few weeks, has been making headlines. Be it criticising Bollywood or saying Mumbai feels like POK, she has been extremely vocal about her thoughts on the micro-blogging site Twitter. Now, after lashing out at the Shiv Sena, Kangana's latest targets were Bollywood celebrities yet again. The actress went on to accuse the industry of being a drugs-haven. In response to Kangana's claim, Urmila Matondkar, during an interview, went on to slam the former. In the interview, Urmila said Kangana should first look at her home state Himachal before passing comments on Mumbai or the alleged drugs nexus in Bollywood. 

Reverting, Kangana went on to call Urmila a soft porn-star in one of her recent interviews on a news channel. Reacting to the Rangeela actress's comment stating that her statements are to win a BJP ticket, the Queen actress said, "The way she was talking about me, completely teasing through the interview, pulling faces, or just making a mockery out of my struggles, attacking me based on the facts that I am trying to please BJP for a ticket. One doesn’t have to be a genius to figure that for me it is not very difficult to get a ticket. I don’t have to play with my life or get my property ruined. Urmila isn’t known for acting for sure and is known for doing soft porn. If she can get a ticket, why won’t I get a ticket? Everybody is getting a ticket."
