Rangoli Slams Gully Boy, Says 'Uri And Manikarnika' Would've Been Better Oscar Entries; Blasts 'Chatukar' Critics
Ever since the news of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt’s Gully Boy being sent as India’s official entry for Oscars 2020 was announced, fans had high hope, considering it did well and all the performances were spectacular. However, it turned out that this Bollywood film has been ousted from the race of making it to the Academy Awards of 2020. The news came in after the official website of Oscars shared its nominations list in the morning today. Well, this sure disappointed a lot of people, but Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel stands as one exception.

Taking to her Twitter, Rangoli shared her displeasure over the critics for ditching films like Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi and URI: The Surgical Strike and sending Gully Boy. Further, she termed them as ‘chatukar’ and accused the makers of Gully Boy of copying from Hollywood’s 8 Mile. She wrote, “This film is based on Hollywood film 8 Mile, yahan ke movie mafia chatukar critics ke chaatne se kya hota hai, it’s not original content like Uri and Manikarnika, why Hollywood will give award to a film which is copied from their film ?”

Check out her tweet below:


Well, we aren’t surprised because Rangoli has often been vocal about her critique opinions towards several people, especially Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt.




Gully Boy was a Zoya Akhtar directorial, which chronicled the lives of Mumbai-based underdog rappers, and had opened to a great response. It had hit the big screens on February 14, 2019. Better luck next time, maybe!
