Mehta had been silent on Ranaut and writer Apurva Asrani's dispute over writing credits in Simran. However, the director recently shared a lengthy post about his stance and his experience of making Simran two years ago. He wrote, “The past two years have been difficult, very difficult. They have impacted me financially, 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.”
Terming Simran a 'painful chapter' of his life, Mehta explained why he chose to remain silent during the making and promotions of the film. He stated that since the film was the labour of many people, he chose not to sabotage it. The director further added that he has chosen to steer clear of people who are toxic and has always wished the best for people around him.
Earlier, director Krish had criticised Kangana for taking directorial credits for Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi stating that the actress had worked on only 20 to 25 percent of the first half and 10 to 15 percent of the latter half of the film.
