Working with Kangana Ranaut was a massive mistake, says Hansal Mehta

Scam 1992' director Hansal Mehta had worked with actress Kangana Ranaut in 2017 film 'Simran' which failed to make a mark on box office and on audience's mind. Mehta has often been vocal about how unpleasant it was for him to work alongside Kangana and once again in a recent interview, he stated that working with the actress was a "massive mistake".

Recalling Kangana's unprofessional behaviour, the filmmaker said, "She did not take over the edit, to be fair to her, but there was nothing to take over in the edit. We only had the material that she had shot. She is a very talented actor, she is a very good actor, really really good actor who, I feel has limited herself by making films about herself. You need not make all the characters become what you want to believe you are."

Hansal Mehta further stated, “Abhi kuch gaana aaya uska… (She had a song recently…) she is a woman on fire… you are basically talking about yourself. You know these are things you aspire for yourself, you put it there. It’s not even my place to criticise what choices she makes. She’s a big star, even today and she is a very good actor, I maintain that and working with her, we didn’t gel. Working with her was a massive mistake.”
