I’ve received a lot of offers from Hindi. But the simple thing is that I don’t think they can afford me. I can’t waste my time. The kind of respect I get here. The kind of stardom I get here. I never think of leaving my field of work and going to another field.”
During the release of the trailer for Dhaakad, Kangana Ranaut was asked about the Telugu star’s comment and she immediately agreed, “You are just unhone sahi kaha (He is absolutely right.) I agree with that.” She continued, “I know for a fact that he’s gotten a lot of offers from different directors.

Kangana also paid tribute to Bharat An Nino’s actor and the Telugu film industry.
He has shown respect towards his industry and no one can deny that. We can’t deny that the Telugu film industry did not get anything on a plate. In the past ten to fifteen years, they have worked hard and left the Tamil film industry behind. We can only learn from them, ”said the actor.
After his statement sparked controversy, Mahesh Babu explained that his statement was merely a reflection of his love for his own film industry. He said, “I have always wanted to do Telugu films. I have always wished Telugu films to do well across the country. I feel very strongly why we should go to another industry by leaving us behind. I am very happy that our films are getting there (in North India). Our films are doing well.” Well done across India and my dream come true.”

But the representative of Dhakad feels that people who move to different states should adapt to the culture of that particular state and also learn the language of the state. “When you go to another state, you should learn the language of that state. I moved to Mumbai from Himachal (Pradesh), so I learned Marathi. Likewise, anyone who comes to northern states should learn Hindi and respect the state’s culture. Kangana concluded: “We have to rise above all of these things.”
