It’s a war of words out there on social media. Since Ranaut’s explosive interview with the Republic TV, a plethora of harsh Twitter exchanges have been doing the rounds.
Kangana herself doesn’t have a personal Twitter account but her interactions are conducted from her team’s end, aka @Kanganateam.
Team Kangana Ranaut has reacted to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s tweets where he brought one’s attention to the issue of ‘misbehaving actors’ in Hindi cinema. We don’t know whether Kashyap’s tweets were aimed at Ranaut, but the Panga  actor’s team has slammed Kashyap and called the filmmaker a ‘mini Mahesh Bhatt’.
“Here is mini Mahesh Bhatt telling Kangana she is all alone and surrounded by fake people who are using her, anti nationals, urban naxals the way they protect terrorists now protecting movie mafia.” tweeted team Kangana Ranaut.
Ranaut’s team was retorting to Kashyap’s statement where the filmmaker has claimed that Ranaut was all alone and being used by vested interests.
“I say, @TeamKangana enough said. And if neither your family nor your friends are unable to see this then there’s only one truth and that is you are being used by all of them and there is absolutely no one with you. The rest is on you if you wish to abuse me.”
While Kashyap chose to douse the flames, Kangana or her team were in no mood to forgive the filmmaker, equating him with an urban naxal.
“Blood thirsty terrorism promoters urban naxals & anti nationals have come out in full force, dey (they) call themselves anti establishment bt (but) n(o)w ganging up on a lone warrior to protect people who psychologically & emotionally lynched Shushant (Sushant) ,did dey (they) say a word when he w(a)s bullied & killed?”, tweeted Team Kangana.
Anurag Kashyap has been quite vocal about his stand on the infamous nepotism debate through the social media platform. In a series of tweets written in Hindi, Kashyap cited that an entire crew is responsible for the making of a film and not just the actors who star in it. Kashyap had mocked artistes who don’t behave well with the crew around them.
“Friends, there in an interesting debate going on. A film consists not just of actors. There are about 150 people working on the sets. Insiders or outsiders, the day when artistes start respecting workers, spotboys, then we can pay heed to such artistes,” tweeted Kashyap.
“Be it about nepotism or favoritism, first please speak to the workers on the sets who are the most ill mannered actors or directors or who are the artistes they like to work with the most,” added Kashyap.
