Bollywood star Kangana Ranaut has always been in the headlines for one reason or another. Likewise, her sister Rangoli Chandel is also often seen making comments on other stars or films, usually garnering public attention in return. Earlier last month, she spoke up against Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar being cast in Saandh Ki Aankh instead of older actresses. Now, this time around, she is blaming superstars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt and Karan Johar for using a prestigious opportunity to talk about relationships instead of art. The trio shared the stage together at the Jio MAMI Movie Mela 2019 where they spoke about films, career and Ranbir Kapoor.
MAMI ka closing discussion yeh tha ki Alia iss waqt ki sabse mahan kalakar hai, aur woh Kareena ji ki bhabi hai aur unki shaadi mein Karan ji pooja ka thaal lekar unka sawagat karenge, hmm achcha hai hum jaise gawar kya jane art ki baatein, humein toh kuch samajh aaya hi nahin

Kareena, Karan and Alia spoke about the latter’s relationship with Ranbir – also Kareena’s cousin – and how the Jab We Met actress would be the young starlet’s sister-in-law. While Kareena loved the idea, Alia shied away from talking about it too much. But Rangoli has taken it as an opportunity to slam the stars. She tweeted, “First award shows, and now they have turned film festivals into kitty parties as well. The closing discussion of MAMI was that Alia Bhatt is the best artist of this generation and that she is Kareena’s sister-in-law. They spoke about how Kareena and Karan will have a thaali to welcome Alia when she gets married. It seems like it was a good discussion because what would we know about art and cinema?”
Rangoli has often spoken against many other Bollywood celebrities. In summer this year, she criticized Deepika Padukone for using her mental health for publicity. Deepika had opened up on her depression for the first time, on national television. She was seen celebrating when the video of her story hit a million views on YouTube. Rangoli had said, “What’s happening? Is this what depression is? These are the same people who have a problem with the word ‘mental’ but making videos on depression, in which they are dancing; just for the sake of publicity is wrong.”
