- "Knew she was dating my husband how can I say she's like my daughter?"
- Zarina Wahab also denied outright that Kangana asked her for help
- Kangana's sister Rangoli launched an attack on Zarina Wahab on Twitter
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Zarina Wahab expressed incredulity, especially about claims that she had treated Kangana as her daughter. "This is completely untrue! When I knew she was dating my husband how can I say she's like my daughter? That is ridiculous. She was dating my husband (Aditya) for four-and-a-half-years so how can I say that she's like my daughter?" Ms Wahab told Pinkvilla.
Ms Wahab also denied outright that Kangana asked her for help. "I met Kangana a few times because my husband wanted me to take her to meet Sanjay Leela Bhansali so I took her there," Zarina Wahab told Pinkvilla adding that "there was no question" of Kangana appealing to her. Ms Wahab also said asked why Kangana dated Aditya Pancholi for over four years if she thought of him as a 'bad person' and dismissed the allegations as Kangana raking up '14-15-year-old stuff' in order to promote her new film Simran.
It's not the first time Kangana has been accused of using her romantic history to generate publicity for Simran - singer Sona Mohapatra wrote her an open letter calling her various headline-making remarks 'PR in bad taste.'
Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel launched an attack on Zarina Wahab after the interview was carried on Pinkvilla. Her tweets:

Why Zarina ji pls answer ???
Kangana Ranaut dated Aditya Pancholi during her earliest years in Bollywood - she debuted in 2006 film Gangster and, in her decade on screen, won three National Awards for Fashion, Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns.
Simran, directed by Hansal Mehta, has been mired in controversy for a while now with writer Apurva Asrani alleging that Kangana Ranaut had been given writing credits over him unfairly. Simran comes up this Friday.
