Kangana Ranaut on Thursday took to Twitter to claim that she had got ‘secret' calls and messages of appreciation from Bollywood stars like Akshay Kumar after the trailer release of Thalaivi. She added that Bollywood id 'hostile' and that praising her can get people in trouble.

She wrote: “Bollywood is so hostile that even to praise me can get people in trouble, I have got many secret calls and messages even from big stars like @akshaykumar they praised @Thalaivithefilm trailer to sky but unlike Alia and Deepika films they can’t openly praise it. Movie mafia terror.”

Further, hoping that the industry can be objective and not get into power play and politics, she wrote: “Wish an industry of art can be objective when it comes to art, and not indulge in power play and politics when it comes to cinema, my political views and spirituality should not make me a target of bullying, harassment and isolation but if they do, then obviously I will win.”

Kangana is essaying former Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa in the biopic Thalaivi which is set to hit theatres on April 23. Directed by A.L. Vijay, the film also stars Prakash Raj, Arvind Swami among others.

Recently, Kangnana praised director A.L. Vijay in a series of tweets and thanked him for being patient with her. She wrote “You are not only amazingly competent, your eyes shine brighter when I excel as an artist. Through so many ups and downs, I never saw a hint of anger, insecurity or despair in you. Spoke to people who know you for decades and when they speak about you their eyes light up. You are not a human, you are a devta. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart and know that I miss you.”
