- Rangoli Chandel blamed the "nepo gang" for spreading fake stories
- "Every director isn't looking to baby-sit a star kid," she tweeted
- Mental Hai Kya releases in July
After reports of Kangana Ranaut calling the shots on the sets of her upcoming film Mental Hai Kya went viral, the actress' sister Rangoli Chandel, who is also her spokesperson and manager, dismissed the rumours saying: "Truth is, every director isn't looking to baby-sit a thumb-twiddling star kid, some rather have a partner who is watching their back." Rangoi Chandel dismissed the reports in a series of tweets blaming the "nepo gang" for spreading fake stories to "harm" Kangana's career. Rangoli, who has always defended Kangana on social media, added in a separate tweet: "Kangana has to push her directorial to accommodate brilliant new age makers who are hoping to break through in Bollywood, she is one of those rare actress who has given break to directors like Aanand L Rai (and) Vikas Bahl." Kangana featured in Aanand L Rai's Tanu Weds Manu films while she headlined the cast of Vikas Bahl-directed Queen.
Rangoi Chandel added: "Lots of young south makers who want to work in this industry but can't because of movie mafia and they really hope to work with her... Such articles only make talented young hard working outsiders to queue outside Kangana's house."
Here are Rangoli Chandel's tweets:

On Thursday, Asian Age reported that Kangana Ranaut was "not happy with how her character in Mental Hai Kya shaped out" and she wanted to reshoot a few sequences. However, Mental Hai Kya director told Hindustan Times: "We have shot Mental Hai Kya without any negativity. Both Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao have been fantastic to shoot with, they bring their own energy to the film. Working on Mental Hai Kya has been a collaborative process and it's been an incredible journey. The shift in the release date of the film has been purely made from business perspective by the producers. We are ready to hit screens on July 26. Any other conjecture is baseless and untrue."
Earlier today, Rangoli Chandel in a fresh series of tweets explained how Kangana Ranaut "chose the path less travelled" to carve a niche for herself in the industry. Here are her tweets:
Tanu weds Manu frenchise, Queen, Manikarnika and many films like these had new producers, and new directors this is real success, this is a big gamble, always fishing for the bigger piece of the cake trying to find the best deal is not bad...(contd)— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 7, 2019
(Contd).... but please don't compare them to Kangana who gambles everything for one feeling that even she herself doesn't understand— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 7, 2019
Kangana has willingly said no to Khan films, YRF films, Bhansali, Kumar( Singh is Bling), Devgan(Baadshaaho), Kapoor( Sanju)films, if she had done all these she would have made to all popularity lists, she chose the path less travelled...(contd)— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 7, 2019
(contd)....& you compare her with these women who will give a left arm for these films or these heroes, her success is of a diffent nature if you always put her with these actress who go wagging their tails if a big hero does one ishara, its a humiliation of human vision..(contd)— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) June 7, 2019
Mental Hai Kya, which also featured Rajkummar Rao and is produced by Ekta Kapoor, releases on July 26. Kangana Ranaut is currently filming Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's Panga while she has also signed up for the J Jayalalithaa biopic.
