‘She should stop playing the victim card,’ filmmaker Karan Johar had said just days after Kangana Ranaut revealed how he ignored her initially for being an outsider.

The applause that she drew from the mediapersons for talking about her struggles was a small proof that she came across as an honest person rather than someone practising self-victimisation.
