Varun Dhawan recently congratulated director Tushar Hiranandani after the teaser of his upcoming film Saand Ki Aankh was released. Shortly after the tweet, Taapsee Pannu, who is one of the film's leads, tried to pull Dhawan's leg for forgetting to mention her name along with Bhumi Pednekar's in the tweet, in a seeming reference to Rangoli Chandel's comments about her.

Many Bollywood actors had taken to Twitter to appreciate the work done by the lead pair of Judgementall Hai Kya - Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao after the trailer of the film was droppedDhawan was among the first to praise the trailer but was trolled by Chandel, sister and spokesperson to Kangana Ranaut, for failing to mention the actress' name in his tweet. She also criticised Pannu for not naming Kangana in her tweet about the film and even called her a "cheap copy" of her. While filmmaker Anurag Kashyap chose to defend her, Pannu chose to ignore Chandel's comments.
