Hansal Mehta breaks silence on fallout with Manikarnika actress Kangana Ranaut: Simran is a painful chapter

After Manikarnika co-director Krish, filmmaker Hansal Mehta broke his two-year-old silence and opened about his tiff with actress Kangana Ranaut. The director who had worked with Kangana Ranaut in Simran, said that the past two years have been traumatic for him. Kangana and Hansal Mehta reportedly had numerous creative conflicts during Simran shoot, prompting the filmmaker to fly back to India from the US in the middle of the film’s shooting.

“Many people keep dragging me into the controversies around Kangana Ranaut that seem to erupt from time to time. For the last time - Simran is a closed chapter as far as I am concerned. The details of what really transpired during the film will remain a closed chapter as far as I am concerned. The details of what really transpired during the film will remain a painful chapter of my life that might find their way in a memoir pleasure on social media”, Hansal Mehta tweeted.

He went on to reveal why he decided to remain silent before and even after the release of Simran. “I chose to remain silent before the film released because there was no way I could sabotage a film that had the efforts of so many people at stake. I chose to remain silent after the release because I was relieved that the film was finally out and I did not want to re-live what I had endured. I had to move on for my own sanity,” read his post.

However, he said that he has been coping up with all the “trauma” in his own way. “The past two years have been difficult, very difficult. These years have impacted me mentally and physically. I am dealing with my losses in the most constructive manner possible and in the only way I know - by moving on, by living a fuller life, by working doubly hard and by steering clear of people whose presence in my personal and professional life could be toxic”, Hansal Mehta said.

Earlier, Kangana Ranaut had responded to Hansal Mehta’s tweet on Manikarnika producer Kamal Jain suffering a paralytic stroke, asking how she could have been the cause of it. The director had tweeted, “Sad news. I completely empathise with him and the possible cause of his condition. Prayers.” He later deleted the tweet and explained his stance in another post, “Did not intend my tweet to invite so much negativity. Maybe I was upset. Maybe I should have kept quiet. Deleting the tweet. And still praying that Kamal recovers soon.”
