The digital team of Kangana Ranaut got engaged in a battle of cryptic tweets with Taapsee Pannu and Swara Bhasker this week. The social media war seems to be an outcome of certain comments Kangana made in reference to Taapsee and Swara in a television interview.
Taapsee tweeted to allege that “someone” is trying to use divide-and-rule policy in the film industry, without taking names.
“Before that there was someone trying to use divide n rule policy in the film industry. Yes there are differences between ppl born with pedigree and the ‘outsiders’ but we aren’t battling each other. We are battling for a BETTER SYSTEM TO CO EXIST not by mud slinging n name calling!” Taapsee tweeted from her verified account.
Taapsee’s tweet comes in the wake of Kangana’s interview given to a TV channel over the weekend, where she called Taapsee and Swara “B-grade actresses” and “needy outsiders”.
The tweet by Taapsee came as a response to a netizen’s tweet that reads: “History would remember @taapsee and @ReallySwara as people who stood up against hate without being hateful. Two actors who could’ve easily stayed silent like most of their colleagues while their country was being divided by a dictator, but chose not to.”
Kangana’s digital team, which goes by the name Team Kangana Ranaut on an unverified Twitter account, took a dig at both Taapsee and Kanika.
“MissionM or Badla they are male dominated films, @taapsee never gave a solo hit in her whole life @KanikaDhillon n whole left ecosystem trying to cover up murder of SSR who complained about nepotism n Bullying shame on you all no one defended him but defending his murders now,” tweeted Team Kangana Ranaut.
Swara Bhasker, who was also referred to as “B grade” and “needy outsider” by Kangana in the interview, tweeted her comment, too.
“Okay so while on topic.. full disclosure and confession. I am needy. I need respectful public interaction. I need rationality and logic in debate. I need sane, civil and decent public discourse. I need rule of law. and I need FACTS! What do you need? #NeedyOutsider,” Swara tweeted from her verified account.
Just a few minutes after Swara’s tweet, Team Kangana Ranaut responded with this cryptic tweet from their unverified account: “Kangana predicted this in her interview, vultures will be out for her blood, needy, greedy, liberals with price tags on them and struggling B grade failed actors whose ambitions r beyond their worth n talent are all out attacking a single woman who raised her voice against Mafia.”
Meanwhile, Sonakshi Sinha has reacted to an interview Taapsee Pannu gave to a leading daily.
Sharing a screenshot of the interview, Sonakshi wrote on her verified Instagram account story: “Proud of you @taapsee. The dignity, maturity and integrity with which you have responded has my respect and I am sure of most others too. More power to you.”
