Kangana Ranaut called Urmila Matondkar a soft porn star in a recent interview

Sushant Singh Rajput Singh's death has had a domino effect on the entire Bollywood industry, opening Pandora's box of all its muck out in open. The latest one being between Kangana Ranaut and Urmila Matondkar after the former called the latter a "soft porn star".

Kangana, during an interaction with a TV channel, alluded to an interview given by Urmila where she questioned her (Kangana's) motives and her allegations against Bollywood 'drug-mafia'.

Kangana said, "I saw one very derogatory interview given by Urmila Matondkar. The way she was talking about me, pulling faces, making a mockery of my struggles, attacking me on the fact that I am trying to appease BJP for a ticket. One doesn't have to be a genius to figure for me it is not very difficult to get a ticket." Further calling Urmila a "soft porn star", Kangana expressed that she (Urmila) is not "known for her acting, for sure, what is she known for? For doing soft porn right. If she could get a ticket, why wouldn't I get a ticket."

Swara tweeted, "Dear @UrmilaMatondkar ji, remembering ur outstanding performances in Masoom, Chamatkaar, Rangeela, Judaai, Daud, Satya, Bhoot, Kaun, Jungle, Pyaar Tuney Kya Kiya, Tehzeeb, Pinjar, Ek Hasina Thi.. among others and have marvelled at your acting chops & brilliant dancing! Love u."

Director Anubhav Sinha wrote, "Just felt like saying this to one of the most beautiful, elegant, evocative, expressive actresses ever. Sending you love @UrmilaMatondkar (sic)."

Farah Khan too commended Urmila for speaking for the industry with class. She tweeted, "Class does not rave and rant. It shines through. @UrmilaMatondkar #JayaBachchan @ReallySwara @taapsee @SonuSood @dreamgirlhema You guys Shine BRIGHT (sic)."

TV actor Devoleena Bhattacharjee posted, "Very sad statement by @KanganaTeam for @UrmilaMatondkar. Its proven in time & again that arrogance can let you down at any given moment (sic)."

Kangana, in another interview earlier, had claimed that "99% of Bollywood stars consume drugs."
