Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut’s on-and-off equation has become the talk of the town many times. It started in 2014, when Deepika Padukone dedicated her Best Actress award for Happy New Year to Kangana for her performance in Queen. However, it did not go down well with the latter, who claimed that Deepika never called her to congratulate on the film which fetched her National Award.
The spat continued till recently when Kangana Ranaut indirectly called Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi’s film Gehraiyaan a “trash” last year. Deepika had not reacted to Kangana’s cryptic post.
