Alia Bhatt and her mother Soni Razdan: The Ranaut sisters weren’t impressed with Alia Bhatt’s performance in ‘Gully Boy’ and couldn’t get their heads around to Bhatt winning awards for that role. While Kangana called Bhatt’s performance in ‘Gully Boy’ ‘mediocre’, her sister Rangoli went a step further and began questioning Bhatt and her mother Razdan’s British citizenship and how they were living off India’s resources. Her mother Soni Razdaan maintained a dignified silence for most parts, but pointed out that her ex-husband Mahesh Bhatt had given her sister her first acting break. Chandel refuted those claims and said that Bhatt was a tyrannical director who made her sister cry. None of these allegation could be independently verified and was reduced to he said-she said story.

Taapsee Pannu: Rangoli Chandel wasn’t happy with the casting of ‘Saand Ki Aankh’, a tale of two rural granny shooters in an Indian village, played by Bhumi Pednekar and Taapse Pannu. Chandel tweeted that her sister and her sole client Kangana Ranaut was offered the age-inappropriate role and she had suggested actors like Neena Gupta and Remya Krishnan for the same. But Chandel blasted Pannu for taking on that role and said that putting on fake prosthetics doesn’t make a good actor.

Ananya Pandey: Chunkey Pandey’s daughter who won the Best Debutante award in Bollywood for Student Of The Year 2 got a taste of Chandel’s wrath. Ranaut’s sister believes that Ankhita Lokhande who played Jhalkari Bai was more deserving. Radhika Madan from ‘Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’ was a good contender too, believed Chandel and she made her opinions knowns. Chandel also threw the N word into the debate: the much dreaded nepotism label.

Randeep Hooda: The Love Aaj Kal 2 actor had the gumption to side with Alia Bhatt when Rangoli spewed her venom against the ‘Gully Boy’ star. Hooda tweeted to Bhatt that she shouldn’t let ‘occassional actors and chronic victims’ affect her work, alluding to Ranaut. Chandel hit back calling him a permanent failure and accused him of harassing her sister during the filming of ‘Ungli’.

Karan Johar: One of Bollywood biggest battle of wits and guts erupted between Johar and Ranaut, when the latter labelled him the ‘flag-bearer of nepotism’ in Bollywood on his own chat show. The industry was divided with many supporting Johar and a few supporting Ranaut. But her sister Rangoli Chandel didn’t sit quiet. Through a series of tweets, Chandel blasted Johar at every given opportunity. From calling actor’s like Randeep Hooda, a yes-man of Johar, to accusing him of creating close-knit gangs in Bollywood, Chandel was on a shaming spree.

Anurag Kashyap: Anybody who has tried to reason with Rangoli Chandel when she expresses her displeasure is bound to get their hands burnt. Ask director Anurag Kashayap, the director who has worked with her sister Kangana and Taapsee and called Chandel out for being petty. Chandel blasted Pannu for not praising Ranaut specifically after her film trailer launched. Kashyap schooled her saying that if an actor praises a trailer, it’s a compliment for the actors too. Needless to say, Chandel found another person to detest.
