After claiming that Kangana Ranaut's 'Dhaakad' is shelved owing to Manikarnika's failure, Ahmed Khan apologises on receiving backlash from Rangoli Chandel

Kangana Ranaut's sister and her spokesperson on social media platforms- Rangoli Chandel makes headlines every now and then for slamming Bollywood personalities. Be it related to Kangana or not, Rangoli has her viewpoint on all their activities. However this time, apart from Alia Bhatt, Karan Johar and the creme la creme of B-Town, she lashed out at Baaghi 3's director Ahmed Khan, courtesy his statement claiming Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi was a 'flop'. The choreographer turned filmmaker, in an interview with a leading daily, told that Kangana's next film titled Dhaakad has been shelved owing to the poor performance of Manikarnika, which was apparently the actress's directorial debut. Not just this, he went on to invite trouble by mentioning that the producers of the historical drama bore the losses and given the situation, other films made on the same subject were scrapped.

“Kangana Ranaut tried to gain success through a film like Manikarnika, but it was made at a very large scale and all that money was wasted. The makers had huge losses. What happened after that? There were five other films being planned on Rani Jhansi but they were all shelved in view of the poor performance of Manikarnika. Even Kangana had announced a film, Dhaakad and a teaser was also launched for the movie. However, Dhaakad was shelved as Manikarnika was a flop,” Ahmed told in the interview.

Moments after the interview went viral, Rangoli, an active Twitter user, promptly jumped to her younger sister's rescue and lashed at him with a series of tweets. She firstly proved that Manikarnika wasn't a flop and wasn't much behind Baaghi 3 in its first week collections. "Ha ha Arrey Khan Bhai saab, 155 crore ki film ko flop kehte ho, aapki film Baaghi3 ne 49 ka weekend kiya aur Manikarnika ne 45 ka, jayada peeche nahin hai aapse, Manikarnika ka 102 India karke dekhao phir baat karo, abhi toh aapke seetare gardish mein hain," Rangoli wrote. Soon, in yet another tweet, she stated that Ahmed called Kangana to say that his statement has been tweaked. "Kangana just called she told me Ahmad Khan called her and apologised and said he didn’t anything everything was made up..... clearly chillars ki phat bhi jati hai easily...himmat nahin hai to stand by what you say aab aison ko kya kahein jo aake rone lage," read Rangoli's next tweet.


Calling him an unsuccessful and a mediocre filmmaker, Rangoli was in no mood to spare him. "Ek nakamyaab filmmaker Ahmad Khan jisne aaj tak ek aachchi film nahin banaye,woh not only India mein big hit Manikarnika magar Japan mein broke all records se itni jalan rakhta hai kyun?This is the mediocrity I was talking about this morning kyunki khud ko film nahin banani aati," she tweeted yet again.

Amidst all this, the director of Dhaakad, Razneesh Razy Ghai clarified the truth behind the film being shelved. In a tweet, he mentioned that a notice will be issued against Ahmed for false information. He informed that the action-thriller will go on floors in June this year. The producer, Sohail Maklai also cleared the air.
