Kangana Ranaut has demanded Mahesh Bhatt to use his real name. The actress claimed that the filmmaker’s actual name is Aslam. She further went on to call the name a beautiful one.

Kangana shared an Instagram story in which she made the revelation. The actress said that she has come to hear that Mahesh’s real name is Aslam.

She shared that Bhatt changed his name after getting married to his second wife, Soni Razdan. “It’s a beautiful name, why hide it?,” Kangana questioned Mahesh Bhatt.

Here’s her story:

Kangana made her Bollywood debut with Mahesh Bhatt’s film Gangster. The actress won the best debut female for the movie.

However, years later, Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel revealed that the filmmaker threw a slipper at the actress during Woh Lamhe screening. She also claimed that Mahesh Bhatt did not allow Kangana to attend the preview of her own film, ever since she refused to work with him again.

In fact, Rangoli even refused to accept that Mahesh Bhatt gave Kangana a break. She said that Anurag Basu, who helmed the project, gave the actress her break.

Apart from Gangster and Woh Lamhe, Kangana worked with Mahesh Bhatt on Raaz: The Mystery Continues. They did not collaborate again after that.

Currently, Kangana is gearing up for her next release, Emergency. Like the title suggests, the movie is based on the period imposed by India’s former PM, Indira Gandhi. Kangana plays Indira in the movie, which also stars Milind Soman, Anupam Kher, Mahima Chaudhry and Shreyas Talpade in pivotal roles.
