Quite recently, Kangana Ranaut’s sister, Rangoli Chandel had called, Taapsee Pannu a ‘sasti copy’ of Kangana. After that, many of Taapsee Pannu’s friends replied and requested her sister to not comment in the same manner including filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. Following on, yet another comment which Taapsee made regarding Kangana needing a ‘double filter’ was revealed by Rangoli on Twitter.
Kuch log Kangana ko copy kar ke he apni dukaan chalate hain, magar pls note, they never acknowledge her not even a mention of her name in praising the trailer, last I heard Taapsee ji said Kangana needs a double filter and Tapsee ji you need to stop being a sasti copy https://t.co/5eRioUxPic— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) July 3, 2019
In a recent interview, Taapsee has explained everything about the spat between herself and Kangana’s sister. The Game Over actor stated that after Rangoli made the ‘sasti copy’ remark, many of her Bollywood associates wanted to speak up against it. However, Taapsee stopped them from doing so as she did not want to instigate a war of words. The Manmarziyaan actress also exposed that she has also struggled in the industry and thus, no one can use the ‘nepotism’ card against her.
Taapsee said, “Not just Anurag, a few other close friends from the industry also wanted to retort, but I stopped them because I don’t want to give her any mileage on my behalf. She can’t play the nepotism card with me because I’ve also struggled to reach where I am today. I didn’t want to engage in a word battle because I would not be able to match their language. I didn’t know there was a copyright on curly hair, which I was born with, and honest opinions. I’m not going to apologize for it. As far as being “sasti” is concerned, Kangana claims to be the highest-paid actress, so I guess I am the “sasti” version.”
Furthermore, Taapsee clarified the incident where she stated Kangana’s requirement for a ‘double filter.’ She stated; “We are both opinionated and speak our mind which is a good thing except that sometimes it lands us in trouble. I had said it in a positive manner and not meant for it to be derogatory. In fact, I have often said Kangana’s an actor I look up to, my conscience is clear. It was weird to target me, that’s why it backfired.”
