Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli issues warning to Hrithik Roshan over Mental Hai Kya clash: ‘Ab tu dekh, Jadoo’
After targeting actor Alia Bhatt and her family, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel has jumped into yet another controversy. This time, she has alleged that there is a negative PR campaign at work against Kangana’s upcoming release, Mental Hai Kya. Rangoli has implied that Hrithik Roshan is attempting to spin the story of his film Super 30 clashing against Mental Hai Kya in his favour, and has taunted him in a tweet, addressing him as ‘Jadoo’.
Kangana and Hrithik’s personal feud goes back several years, when she called him a ‘silly ex’ in an interview, and they were subsequently involved in years of legal back and forth. Hrithik has denied that he was ever involved with her romantically, and Kangana has attacked him in public on several occasions.
Ekta Kapoor, producer of Mental Hai Kya in a statement Tuesday had urged fans to not resort to any ugliness. She tweeted on Wednesday that the decision to move Mental Hai Kya’s release date was hers alone, but had noticed that ‘ugly underground tweets had begun’.
“I’ve promised to keep it clean and have assurances from my actors on the same. I hope personal assaults on them stop,” she wrote. Ignoring Ekta’s instructions, Rangoli tweeted, “What to expect from a man who always prefers to attack your back rather then meeting you in the battle field, jitna tu aur tera PR Kangana ko giraega utna he woh teri maregi (The more you and your PR tries to undermine Kangana, the harder she’ll strike back).... so far it wasn’t her concern magar ab tu dekh (wait and watch)... Jadoo.”
She continued, “Tu apne chillar PR se tweet karvata reh, woh ek interview degi.... tere charon khane chit.. (you keep relying on your cheap PR tricks, all it’ll take for you to be knocked out is one interview by Kangana).” Tagging Hrithik in a tweet, she wrote, Balaji kya Kangana Ranaut ka production house hai jo woh jab chahe film release kare... lekin pappu toh pappu hota hai... common sense hai he nahin.... ab tu dekh beta, tera kya haal hoga (Balaji isn’t Kangana’s production house. She has no say in when their films are released. But you shall always remain stupid. You have no common sense. But wait and watch what happens to you.)”
Rangoli said that Kangana had advised Ekta to not release Mental Hai Kya on the same day as Hrithik’s Super 30, but Ekta didn’t agree. “Just because he cant say anything to Ekta he will make Kangana a punching bag, Well!! U r mistaken..” Naming Hrithik’s PR manager in the tweet, she warned the actor that if any further attacks were to be made on her sister, “woh teri sari charbi nikal degi woh bhi ek chutki mein..sudhar ja @iHrithik (Kangana will remove all the extra fat you have in a snap).”
Each of Kangana’s recent releases have been involved in some sort of controversy, going back to Rangoon (where she was said to have clashed with co-stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor), Simran (where she was accused of taking over the production), to Manikarnika (where she was accused of having director Krish removed).
Mental Hai Kya was originally slated for a June 21 release, when it would have clashed against Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh. Interestingly, Kangana had earlier set her Manikarnika against Super 30 on January 26, but the Hrithik-starrer was delayed after director Vikas Bahl was named in the #MeToo movement. The film’s post production was overseen by Anurag Kashyap, but the film will not carry a director’s credit.
Rangoli has previously initiated feuds with actor Alia Bhatt, her mother Soni Razdan and father Mahesh Bhatt, and Shabana Azmi.
