Taapsee Pannu’s recent spat with Kangana Ranaut’s sister and manager, Rangoli Chandel was the talk of the town for quite some time now. It all started with Rangoli attacking Taapsee on Twitter after she praised Kangana’s performance in the trailer of Judgementall Hai Kya. Rangoli took to her Twitter to bash Taapsee for her ‘double filter’ comment and even went on to call her a ‘sasti copy’ of Kangana.
Taapsee Pannu took it rather sportingly and said that the sasti copy comment is apt because she is not the highest-paid actress in the industry and hence being a cheap copy is not entirely wrong. During the promotions of Mission Mangal, in a media interaction Taapsee said, “When a journalist asks me a question (on the subject), I answer because through your medium I can tell my audience who I am. So, you people matter to me” addressing the controversy. She further elaborated, “One needs a filter when she does not have any pretention and no filter between their mind and their mouth. I do not see this as a derogatory comment. It is just a comment. Even my sister tells me to put a filter before I open my mouth in public. That is true because at times my honest opinion gets me into trouble. So my comment on ‘keeping a filter’ was not meant to be negative, though people on the other side took it negatively. I cannot change their perception.”
