Kangana Ranaut defended Rangoli Chandel against Varun Dhawan and Taapsee Pannu after war-of-words on Twitter

Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao 's latest stint, 'Judgmentall Hai Kya' has been creating quite a buzz among viewers and B-town celebrities. Ever since the trailer of the much-aticipated film released, many A-Listers have taken to social media to praise the trailer and laud the performance of the 'lead and supporting cast'. However, this took an ugly turn when Rangoli Chandel decided to hit out at Taapsee Pannu and Varun Dhawan for not crediting Kangana Ranaut in their tweets.  After a heated war-of-words on Twitter, director Anurag Kashyap came forward in support of Taapsee Pannu and said that Chandel is taking things 'too far'.

And now, in a recent interview, Kangana Ranaut was asked to respond to the entire debacle, who said that Rangoli is defending her, just like Kashyap is supporting Taapsee. She went on to say that her sister was just 'lovingly teasing' Varun Dhawan as he never responded to her when she asked him to speak about 'Manikarnika' and that Chandel is really upset by Taapsee saying that, Ranaut needs a 'filter'. Concluding she said that if anyone has a problem with Rangoli's tweets should just unfollow her 

Meanwhile, talking about the film, it was initially titled "Mental Hai Kya" and was at the receiving end with many people calling the title derogatory and insensitive to mentally-challenged persons.Members of the Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS) had written a letter to the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) seeking a change in the title, stating that they find it derogatory and demeaning to the mentally ill.

Balaji Telefilms, film's producer, later changed the title due to objections. Kangana said the CBFC was extremely cooperative with the film's team. 

"The Psychiatric Association asked us to battle it out in court to show that the word has indeed been banned just weeks ago. Obviously, you don't have that much choice. But we truly believe that our product is sincere and we have been given a U/A certificate.

"Their (Psychiatric Association's) panel was present there and with a heavy heart they said 'you've made a good film but we couldn't find anything offensive in it.' We have faith in our intentions. I don't think it's going to make a difference with a small title (change)," she added. 

"Judgementall Hai Kya" is scheduled to be released on July 26.
