Netizens felt she was alluding to Deepika Padukone.
On World Mental Health Day, actress Kangana Ranaut whereas urging her followers on social media to look at her movie "Judgementall Hai Kya", took a dig at fellow actor Deepika Padukone, accusing her not directly of making an attempt to stifle her movie and alleging that the film was dragged to courtroom by "those that run despair ki dukan". "After the media ban, the name of the film was changed just before the release causing marketing complications but it's a good film, do watch it today #WorldMentalHealthDay".
However, that title was mired in controversy as it was deemed by mental health experts and organizations as insensitive toward patients.
The film was earlier called Mentall hai kya but due to the Indian Psychiatric Society's letter to CBFC, that they find the title demeaning and derogatory to mentally ill people, the film was renamed.
Deepika, 34, is a vocal advocate for mental health awareness.
She also founded the non-profit organization Live Love Laugh Foundation, which works toward mental health issues and suicide prevention.
"Repeat after me, depression ka dhandha chalane walon ko public ne unki aukat dikhadi #CBIforShushant #SushantSingRajput #1stStepToSSRJustice", wrote Kangana in one of her tweets, before going out on a full-blown rant against Deepika.
The actor had starred in a film named Judgementall Hai Kya which revolved around this subject and had released past year.
Thereafter, Kangana's sister Rangoli Chandel had attacked Deepika through a series of tweets.
