Kangana Ranaut has been on a war path of late. The actress has called out nepotism in the industry after the tragic demise of Sushant Singh Rajput. The actor was found hanging at his Bandra residence on June 14 and Kangana has lashed out at how outsiders get cornered in the industry from pre-existing camps and cliques. This is not all. She has called Taapsee Pannu and Swara Bhaskar B-grade actresses and chaploos on national TV. This left the two ladies mighty upset and they also retaliated on social media. Taapsee Pannu pointed out to Kangana Ranaut’s contradictory opinions on nepotism while Swara Bhaskar hinted that she was an opportunist.
Anurag Kashyap has now said that he tried to patch things up between Taapsee Pannu and Kangana Ranaut but now it seems impossible. It looks like the discord began when Taapsee Pannu during the promotion of Manmarziyaan said that she did like to give a double filter to Kangana Ranaut. Anurag Kashyap told NDTV in an interview that he feels that their relationship soured from that time. He said, “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.” He said he tried to mend fences between the two talented ladies.
However, the filmmaker has said that he does not identify with the new Kangana Ranaut. The actress delivered one of the greatest hits of her career, Queen in one of his productions. Anurag Kashyap had tweeted earlier, “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. And I just saw this scary interview of hers, which is just after the release of Manikarnika.”
