While Taapsee Pannu’s film ‘Mission Mangal’ registers record opening of Rs 29.16 crore on the first day of its release, the actress has something not so great on her plate. We told you how Taapsee recently called out Kangana Ranaut’s brand of feminism that is completely dependent on her convenience in an interview as she discussed her film and controversies in her personal life. 

Taapsee had questioned Kangana on her double standards by saying, "She has always spoken about how a woman should support another woman, but I did not hear any words of praise for my films. There are five women in Mission Mangal. Is she praising us? I am her junior and don't have [as vast] a filmography as her, but I have done a decent number of films for someone to be appreciative of it." Read about Mission Mangal's cast's interview to WION about their experience and why this film is a must watch for all Indians. 

Kangana’s sister Rangoli has apparently taken offence to this and in a string of tweets addressed this issue. In a scathing attack on Taapsee, Rangoli challenged the actress to respond to her on Twitter instead of talking to media. 

Rangoli wrote: "Yeh Madam is attacking Kangana everyday,arrey bhai tune kya kiya hai for what we should praise you? 2 mins role in a film lead by Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. Or playing character roles in Big B films or carrying same confused expression through all your film..

"kaun sa praise?? Making nasty remarks about a great artist isn't enough what is there to your credit, you arnt a kid you are also 32 years Kangana's age, what have you achieved for what we should praise you??...

×

"Look at all your interviews only one thing they call you for is to discuss Kangana Ranaut, don't ask you any other question, show me one question which is about your work or achievements?

×

"Don't run to the media answer me here, please I am asking openly please respond openly not slyly."

Meanwhile, the issue had started when Rangoli had called Taapsee a “sasti copy” to which Taapsee had jokingly responded that she is a copy because Kangana is a great artist and sasti because she doesn’t quote a huge amount for her work in comparison to Kangana who claims to be the highest-paid actress in the industry. 

In that same interview, Taapsee had said, "If I meet her, I will graciously walk up and say hello to her, or even her sister. It was triggered because I said she needs a double filter. Even Anurag [Kashyap] and I need that. How is that a negative thing? I saw her as an honest person. It's sad that she says a woman cannot call out another woman. I will call out people basis who is wrong and right, and not based on what gender they belong to. Feminism is about an equal platform."
