In an interview to Mumbai mirror, Shabana said, “Kangana has started believing in her own myth. She says she taught feminism to the film industry, she taught it nationalism. I’m glad she spelled that out because nobody else had noticed! I think she fears the day when she will no longer be in the headlines and so has to keep making outrageous statements to stay in the news. Poor girl, why doesn’t she just do what she is best at, which is acting.”
To this, Rangoli Chandel wrote in her Instagram story, “Here comes the suicide gang!!! Dear Shabana ji I have few questions for you and your husband. Why don’t you both also stick to your respective acting and poetry? Why do you guys actively participate in anti India politics? To remain in headlines? Or you feel for certain issues? If your anti India agendas are genuine why can’t her pro India agendas be genuine as well? Why different rules for her and different rules for you? @azmishabana18.”
Previously, Kangana Ranaut’s sister manager Rangoli told press that Shabana’s husband, lyricist Javed Akhtar, had ‘threatened’ Kangana and told her to apologize to Hritik Roshan for comments she made about him.
Kangana Ranaut has pro-actively commented on Sushant Singh Rajput’s murder case, in the recent months. Her comments have been condemned for their perceived self serving nature by several people inside and outside the industry.
