Payal Rohatgi, a former Lock Upp participant, talked about Kangana Ranaut’s Dhaakad box office performance. In her remark, she also indicated the reality show’s winner, Munawar Faruqui. Payal Rohatgi took to Instagram to publish two screenshots, the first of an article claiming that Kangana’s Dhaakad grossed 50 lakh on day one at the box office.
The second screenshot is of an old tweet on Munawar Faruqui. The tweet read, “I come from Two India 1) 1947 2) 2014 #FreedomOfSpeech.” Sharing the post, Payal wrote, “Sad…Karma is a b**….Jisko 18 lakh vote mile na usne film ki promotion ki na uske BOTS film dekhne aaye (The one who received 18 lakh votes, they didn’t do promotion nor did their bots came to watch the film) (rolling on the floor laughing emoji).”
She also added, “#Sita MA par film banane waali hai Kangana ji aur usme Sita MA ka mazak udane waale ko shayad role bhi degi kyuki use apni objectivity dikhani hai samaaj ko (Kangana is going to make a film on Goddess Sita and the one who made fun of Her even they might land a role because she has to show her objectivity to the society) (folded hands emoji). #payalrohatgi #ladkihuladhskdihu #yogasehoga.”

Kangana’s Dhaakad witnessed a slow start at the box office. Directed by Razneesh Ghai, Dhaakad also features Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta. Kangana will also play Sita in the film Sita: The Incarnation, directed by Alaukik Desai.
Payal recently attended the Dhaakad premiere and said that Kangana was rude to her. She attended the premiere just a few days after venting on Instagram about Kangana, Munawar, Ekta Kapoor, and Lock Upp. Payal has chastised Kangana for selecting Munawar as the winner of Lock Upp over her.
