Accusing movie mafia, she was quoted as saying, “The mafia joined in, they started making fun of the mechanical horse. The film was breaking records and it was breaking many people also. So that of course I spoke at length at many events. That was the day I promised everyone that now I will take their case and people must not have taken it seriously and they must have laughed at it. But then I took their case also and that is also history and it will be a prominent part of pop culture.”

Kangana even referred to the behind-the-scenes video that showed her riding a mechanical horse. Several people mocked her and still continue to do so. She had also been accused of hijacking directing duties of the film. The original director Krish had said that he was let go. He had told SpotboyE, “Kangana has done 20-25% of the first half and 10-15% in the second half. I didn’t shoot a song and I didn’t shoot her entry scene. In the second half, she has even re-shot some scenes which I had done in a different way.”
