During the course of her stellar career in the film and television industry, Ekta Kapoor has worked with some of the most prominent stars to grace the silver screen, including Kangana Ranaut and Taapsee Pannu. A while ago, the actresses had been involved in a row, which involved some heated exchanges between the two. The feud also saw the participation of Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel, who called Taapsee a ‘sasti copy’ of Kangana. Ekta recently weighed in on the row between the actresses during the trailer launch event of Taapsee’s film Dobaaraa.
As per a report in Bollywood Life, Ekta was questioned about the similarities between Taapsee and Kangana, and the person asking the question had referenced the ‘sasti copy’ comment. The filmmaker had first responded to the question with ‘Yeh kaisa question hai?’. Ekta then went on to say that there was one similarity between Kangana and Taapsee, they were both trailblazing women. She said that it was not anyone’s job to try and play them against each other and added “We are women, we adjust each other’s crown, not remove it.”
Calling it ‘amazing’ that she gets chances to collaborate with a host of talented actors, Ekta said that both Kangana and Taapsee were ‘brilliant’ actors. The filmmaker also spoke of how she would approach the stars again if any interesting scripts came her way.
For the uninitiated, last year Taapsee had told Hindustan Times that Kangana’s absence from Twitter did not have any relevance in the former’s life. Kangana had lashed out against Taapsee, calling the latter ‘gareeb producer ki Kangana’. Kangana’s sister had also referred to Taapsee as the former’s ‘sasti copy’.
Ekta is a producer on Dobaaraa, which was directed by Anurag Kashyap. The film, also starring Pavail Gulati, is scheduled for release on August 19, 2022.
