While many in the industry have chosen to remain silent on the Kangana Ranaut and Hrithik Roshan controversy, Vishal Bhardwaj has decided to break his silence on it.

Vishal Bhardwaj, who directed Kangana Ranaut in Rangoon said that while the legal battle between the two stars was ongoing, anyone other than Kangana would’ve stopped shooting.

Kangana is a very professional girl. And, maybe this is the right time to talk about it. When their (Kangana and Hrithik) personal conflict was going on, if it was any other actor, they would have stopped shooting for the film in the middle stating that they need to fix their mental state (Kangana was shooting for Vishal’s film Rangoon).

He also added that Kangana stayed strong and professional through it all.

“Whereas Kangana was strong, even when the media was writing something or the other controversial about her every day and night. She would come for the shoot and once she was in front of the camera, she was totally into the character she was playing,” he added.

Vishal also said that it was tough time for her, because they would shoot in remote areas with connectivity issues.

“After that what she used to do, I don't know because we all were also busy with the film. But I know for a fact that it was a tough time for her. She was absolutely professional, and not even one day has she asked to stop the shooting for the film. We were shooting in the interiors of the country. So, we were totally cut off from the world, and would read the news on our phones only," said Vishal Bhardwaj.
