After taking potshots at Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar and Ananya Panday for Filmfare Awards 2020, Rangoli Chandel moved to Javed Akhtar and Mahesh Bhatt for their recent interview about Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Both Rangoli and her sister, actor Kangana Ranaut, are known to be big supporters of Modi. During an interview with a news channel, Javed Akhtar had called Modi a ‘fascist’ and someone shared the link of the same interview on Twitter recently. The statement made by the famous lyricist-writer irked Rangoli who calls herself the official spokesperson of Kangana on social media.

In her latest tweet, she slammed Akhtar and Bhatt for their opinions about the PM. While making a tweet bashing the two veterans, Rangoli alleged that Javed Akhtar once called up Kangana and asked her to apologise to Hrithik Roshan during the entire slugfest about ‘dating a pope’ that thrilled the fans two years back. Now, digging up the same matter once again, Rangoli mentioned in a tweet that Akhtar ‘threatened’ Kangana while Mahesh Bhatt threw ‘chappal at her’. Her tweet read, “Javed Akhtar ji called Kangana home and intimidated her threatened her to say sorry to Hrithik, Mahesh Bhatt threw chappal on her cos she refused to play a suicide bomber, they call PM Facist, chacha ji aap dono kya ho ?” (sic) Also Read - Kangana Ranaut Reveals She Did 'Tacky Films' For Sister Rangoli Chandel's Surgeries After Acid Attack
The matter between Kangana and Hrithik was dismissed by the Mumbai Police citing lack of evidence. Earlier, Kangana had spoken out against Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar when they cancelled their trip to Pakistan where they were supposed to be a part of a cultural fest about the former’s father, late Kaifi Azmi. The veteran couple had announced that they were not attending the fest following the Pulwama attack that happened on February 14 last year.
Retorting to the same, Kangana, in a statement, had said that both Azmi and Akhtar should not even have agreed to be a part of the event in the first place. Her statement read, “People like Shabana Azmi calling for halt on cultural exchange – they are the ones who promote Bharat Tere Tukde Honge gangs… why did they organise an event in Karachi in the first place when Pakistani artistes have been banned after Uri attacks? And now they are trying to save face?” Shabana had replied by saying that she didn’t think Kangana’s opinion held any importance in the time when the entire country was grieving together.
