Nushratt said, “When the trailer of the film came out, I was being asked how and why I decided to do a film with an ensemble cast. It is not an ensemble film. It is a film led by one actor. The actor just happens to be female. During Janhit Mein Jaari trailer launch, I wondered what it will take. When today there is a woman headlining a film, why can’t it be called her film?”””

“Kangana Ranaut found herself in a sticky situation as she called Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker (Baakar) an ‘idiot of a man’ after falling for a spoof video. Reacting to a parody that is going viral on social media, the Queen actor took to her Instagram story to criticise Baker for ‘bullying a poor man’.
A Twitter user named Vashudev had shared a video appealing to Indians to boycott Qatar Airways, after India received a massive diplomatic blowback for BJP leaders’ Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal’s derogatory remarks toward Prophet Muhammad. Another user then shared a video where he dubbed the interview of Qatar Airways’ chief. The dubbed video has Baker talking about the importance of Vashudev as an investor to them.”
