Bollywood’s reigning queen Deepeika Padukone recently revealed that she is ‘jealous’ of actress Kangana Ranaut’s latest film ‘Queen’. According to reports, post the screening of ‘Queen’, Deepika Padukone was enamored by Kangana Ranaut’s performance in the film and has even said on her official Twitter page that the film is a ‘must watch’.
Meanwhile Deepika Padukone is not the only one awestruck by Kangana’s performance in the film. A host of Bollywood celebrities like Sonakshi Sinha, Huma Qureshi, Sonu Sood among others lauded Kangana Ranaut for her film ‘Queen’, Mr Perfectonist Aamir Khan took to Twitter to express his opinion about the film.
Aamir Khan, for whom a special screening of the film was held in Mumbai on Saturday (March 8), said, “What a film!!! Guys you have to watch QUEEN !!! Anyone who hasn’t seen it please go now and see it.”
Aamir Khan is of the opinion that ‘Queen’, which follows the story of Rani (Kangana Ranaut) realising her true potential when she goes on her honeymoon alone after being left by her fiance Vijay (Rajkumar Rao) a day before marriage, is a very ‘important’ film for girls and boys today.
The actor further tweeted: “Such an important film for every girl, every woman to watch… and in fact every male to watch too!”
Clearly Aamir Khan is in awe of the film which has received rave reviews from critics and audience. Thanking Vikas Bahl for the movie, Aamir said, “Thank you to Vikas Bahl and his team which made the film. And Kangana… you rock!!! Love. a.”
