Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut recently turned host in the reality show ‘Lock Upp’, said that Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Akshay Kumar, and Ranveer Singh have failed as hosts.
Kangana Ranaut recently took to her Instagram Stories to call herself a ‘superstar host’, while taking a dig at other actors who “unsuccessfully” tested their hands at hosting.
Praising herself, Kangana reasoned in a long note on her Instagram Stories that she was only the third actor who could be categorized as a ‘superstar host’ after Amitabh Bachchan and superstar Salman Khan.
Further, she also noted how other Bollywood stars tried hosting but failed miserably.
“Many successful actors have tried their hands on hosting like SRK, Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh… they may have successful careers but they failed at hosting they are unsuccessful hosts, so far only Shri Amitabh Bachchan ji, Salman Khan ji, and Kangana Ranaut have achieved this glory to be a superstar host… privileged to be in this league,” Kangana wrote.
Jealous movie mafia
The actor, in her previous post, had said that many from the industry are jealous of her work as a host. She wrote, “I wish I didn’t have to state the obvious but jealous movie mafia is doing everything to discredit me and my show so I had to do the needful and I don’t mind… if I can stand up for everyone else I can stand up for myself also… it is wonderful to be the only successful host of this generation #lockupp.”
She also claimed that she was a bit worried about debuting as a host on Lock Upp as many successful actors have failed at the task. She said, “I know I have a strong personality, but still, the number of actors who have failed in hosting, especially those who have empowering personalities, intelligent views of the world. I thought I may be good but I will take time to get accepted and to get a hang of it.”
Ektaa Kapoor’s Lock Upp streams on Alt Balaji and MX Player all seven days with Kangana’s judgment day episode airing on the weekends. The show had recently crossed 200M views.
