Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel had called Taapsee Pannu a 'sasti copy' last year after the actress in an interview said that the 'Queen' actress probably needs a 'double filter'.

Bollywood actors Kangana Ranaut and Taapsee Pannu have been locked into a war of word son social media since the last few days. It recently began when Kangana called the 'Thappad' actress a 'B grade' and a 'needy outsider'. Various other celebs have chimed in on the conversation and one of them is Anurag Kashyap who took to Twitter and said that he does not recognise this 'new' Kangana who was once a good friend. 

Now, in a latest interview with NDTV, Anurag Kashyap has revealed that he tried his best to play peacemaker between the two actresses when things had initially soured between them. For the unversed, Kangana's sister Rangoli Chandel had called Taapsee a 'sasti copy' last year after the actress in an interview with Anurag had said that Kangana probably needs a 'double filter'. 

The incident occurred while the duo were promoting Manmarziyaan and Taapsee was asked what product she would suggest Kangana Ranaut. Anurag revealed, "Kangana was hurt by that. I am saying okay, if you are hurt by that, I will apologize for that. That's what friends do. But she has gone on to a mode where 'If (you) are not with me you are my enemy'." 

I saw Kangana’s interview yesterday. She used to be a very good friend of mine at one time. She used to encourage me by coming for my films. But I do not know this new Kangana.

He further added that he tried to mend things between them but it did not work out. “Taapsee is also a friend and I said that two friends are there and why are they saying things to each other... I called her (Kangana) and asked her and she put the whole conversation on social media and I was just there like a friend trying to sort things out,” the filmmaker revealed.

Reacting to Kangana's latest explosive interview, Anurag has tweeted saying that before 2015 he had never heard Kangana say things like, "Learn from me, be like me," and since then to now, everyone who does not side with Kangana is mean and a sycophant.

Anuraag nearing 50 & his Charlie’s angels (Swara,Richa,tapsee) at 33 years hold a 33 year old Kangana hostage to her views when she was 22-23 years old. She won her first national award at 22 & second at 27. And you guys?? At 22-23 kangana was a b-grade star too despite having performance driven clear hits to her credit and could barely speak English. It’s admirable that she was on India today’s stage even then. Her views can change over time as she has seen the industry change to her post stupendous success. Next time you accuse someone of intolerance, elitism, opportunism, bullying & bigotry please introspect what you are doing to Kangana?

Which awards are you boasting off? Isn't Kangana Ranaut herself against all kinds of awards and calls these "fixed". National awards are also decided by political people so expect these to be fair? PV I hope you do post it.

Once you see anuraag’s interview with a puppet PR journo it is clear that there is great deal of PR messaging involved - his rant is that Kangana’s films are “about her” to continue the narrative the movie mafia painted for harming Manikarnika. It is to justify his own, tapsee & Swara types choices where they do 5-10 minute side roles with bigger stars. If you were sellable & talented like Kangana, you too would have movies centered around you guys! Also, panga was praised for everyone not just Kangana, JHK for its crisp story & rajkumars stellar role so this narrative isn’t flying. Why don’t you say the same for ranveer Singh movies like simba or Ranbir kapoor’s rockstar or the khans?? Because you wag your tails to work for them even in sidekick roles. Because you know you are b grade and they are a lister. Obviously there is hypocrisy for Kangana!

Anurag like Bollywood men prefers pliable women. Pliable for work. Kangana marches on a different path he and the women who look up to him can’t tolerate Kangana. Solution - PR brain washing that she is dominating.

As if tapsee is someone important. As big a non entity as you anuraag. Dont try to use kangana's name for click baits using services of bullywood PR.

This man always looks so greasy like he lives on fried oil. That aside, by attacking Kangana he is invalidating his brothers story too and that is sad. Family must always stand together. If he cares to he must explain the difference between Kangana and his brothers action. PV post this please

I have seen film review of Aupama Chopra of the Sushant's last film chhichhore. She talked about everyone in the film in detail. The main lead Susant was marginalized to a mere sentence in a film he portrays character which transcends different phases of life. Did she talk about it. No. Why ? Poor main female lead is also isolated may be for personal reasons. Film review is not about telling story or giving spoilers. But thought of bit disappointed.

She and Masaand work closely with Karan, only they have find kalank , SOFY2 a good film and they only promote karan nepo kids and when Kangana is bringing down that devil, chalupsi Tapsee, Swara got burnt and call her opportunist. They have zero morals , they will continuously tweet against Kangana, but when it comes to bollywood mafia, they don't have an opinion and play safe, they are just puppets who are sold for few rupees.They are a shame to humanity, I Hope SSR haunts these hypocrites and their Bosses.

Taapse was crying for an opportunity to work with Salman Khan during Judwa-2 promotions. Just did the old videos on Youtube. So anybody needs more evidence to her integrity. Taapse who shamefully dig the history to post a video may 10 years ago of Kangana. If someone sys Kangana is manipulative and opportunistic then look at Taapse she is no difference calculative and manipulative for own benefits( for me Kangana is not totally right she made mistakes). At least Kangana is raising her voice against powerful cult and which definitely have negative consequences, but people are more aware of them and some spineless individuals defenders who goes around bashing the whistleblower.

Excuse me what raised her voice raised her voice always same point. It only resulted iin mud slinging and adding political angle to it which is disastuarous. Swamy & ishkaran were already on board due to people’s voice and shekar suman efforts. Atleast give credit for general public for this movement. Not shove it to her. All have this piped piper syndrome.

she clearly has a wooden expression in all her movies expecially the thappad one. Her chamchi suckup behaviour can be seen very clearly in the promotional interviews of Mission Mangal. So touchy touchy of Akshay

Kangana speaks with logic, clarity & above all with INTEGRITY! and stands for the truth. These people (won't even call them stars) who have stayed zip silent over Sushant's matter is sending their PUPPETS like Swara, Anurag and few idiotic people who appeared on Arnab show (to supports the 'mafias') - they are surprised & rattled that an outsider LONE successful A-List actress have taken them to laundry in front of national tv and gaining national support everyday! They are hiding and trying to find ways to malign her through media because this time their POCKETS will be hurt if they lose public ADULATION!

Haha. Tu pehle apni problems solve kar. Uske baad Kangana ke baare mein sochna. Swara & tapsee ko lead heroine lekar movie bana, aur pehle apni standing prove kar.

You and your GF tapsee are just bootlickers, you guys know that speaking for kangana won't get you movies, entry in fake parties and awards and precisely entry into their gang, so ganging up and proving Kangana as someone unstable and opportunist is what you excel because you both have no spine to defend all harassment sushant faced by friends Karan, chopra but kangana is doing it , you are hurt.Shut up idiots.

And whoever thinks elitism & exclusivity is restricted to only the nepotism group - what are these Swara-pannu-kashyap-Richa type people? Self styled evolved intellectuals who mock anyone who does not tow their ideology line? If Kangana is a “right wing bigot” according to them and their Delhi media friends, their hypocrisy and bigotry is all over too including the patronage they get from left parties and Delhi government for obvious reasons!

Next time the teen devis and their kanhaiya kashyap parrot the lines "kangana has become a bully she once fought" with their PR armies - please remember you are intolerant elitist bullies too. Your behavior demonstrates the age-old fault line in our society that delhi educated people will never treat a village girl from manali on a social and intellectual level playing field. She will be singled out and schooled for different views. Your conduct reeks of snobbery and desperation.

Four well educated English speaking (tapsee - engineer degree, Swara - JNU, anurag - hansraj, Richa - Stephens) politically aware b-grade film people who studied in Delhi launched vicious attack on an uneducated (beyond school) girl from a village in manali. They have many differences - including that the village girl is more successful than all of them put together. She speaks broken English still, is fearless and is instinctive in her replies which can be misconstrued. If such people can be so arrogant about their views imagine what the KJO Bandra-Juhu club types would be. Many of these people are uneducated and illiterate too which is deadly combo with their wealth & clout. Full support to rockstar Kangana!!

Anonymous 3 months ago

Beautifully written point - Their fight against Kangana is that talent, success, privilege, gender & elitism. How dare a village girl think differently from us? She’s got to be unsuccessful & just as much talented as us. Kangana is out of your league - deal with it!

Instead of playing the judge why does he not focus on his craft - good film making . of late his movies are getting cliched . he used to accuse his mentor Ram Gopal of the same and he is now doing the same . after the initial spark these people including the likes of Dibakar Banerjee are regaling to hackneyed formulas

You and tapsee are opportunistic people trying to butter movie mafia. You know Kangana is a outsider woman so she is a soft target. Try these tricks with ranveer or Alia and you will see the consequences. Tapsee is dying yo get work with people despite openly criticizing them. Spineless and needy people like should be called out.
