Kangana Ranaut on Saturday said the system in place in Bollywood helps people with privilege and repels when it is challenged.

At the India Today Conclave 2019, she said her many fallouts in the industry happened because she was always presented do-or-die situations in which she always fought her survival. She opened up about her legendary tiffs with Hrithik Roshan and Karan Johar.

It's brain-feeding of another magnitude."
