This post by Kangana took everyone by surprise as she had previously slammed Deepika on social media. Kangana lost her temper during a promotional event for her reality show 'Lock Upp' when a journalist asked her a question regarding 'Gehraiyaan' actress. 

The influencer Freddy Birdy posted, "The clothes will get tinier as the Gehraiyaan release date approaches," On which, the journalist asked Kangana what she thinks about the situation. The actress replied, "Look, I am here to defend those who can't defend themselves. Alright? She can defend herself. She has the privilege, the platform and I can't promote her film here. Sit down."

Earlier, Kangana took an indirect dig at Deepika during her film's promotion 'Judgementall Hai Kya'. In 2020, during World Mental Health Day, Kangana tweeted, "The film that we made for Mental Health awareness was dragged to the court by those who run depression ki dukan, after media ban, name of the film was changed just before the release causing marketing complications but it’s a good film, do watch it today."
