"She has to show her objectivity to the society"
Former Lock Upp contestant Payal Rohatgi spoke about Kangana Ranaut’s Dhaakad numbers at the box office.
She also hinted at the reality show’s winner Munawar Faruqui in her post.
Taking to Instagram, Payal Rohatgi shared two screenshots – the first one of an article which said that Kangana Ranaut’s Dhaakad earned Rs. 50 lakh on day 1 at the box office.
In the second picture, a screenshot of an old tweet on Munawar Faruqui was also seen.
The tweet read: “I come from Two India 1) 1947 2) 2014 #FreedomOfSpeech.”
Sharing the post, Payal Rohatgi wrote: “The one who received 18 lakh votes, they didn’t do promotion nor did their bots came to watch the film.”
She also added: “Kangana Ranaut 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 #payalrohatgi #ladkihuladhskdihu #yogasehoga”
Stand-up comedian Munawar Faruqui won Kangana-hosted Lock Upp and lifted the winner’s trophy, beating Payal at the game.
He was declared the winner after receiving more than 18,000 votes.
Apart from the trophy, Munawar Faruqui also won Rs. 20,000, a car and an all-expense-paid trip to Italy.
Lock Upp, produced by Ekta Kapoor, pitted 20 contestants against each other in a jail-like setting.
Celebrities such as Poonam Pandey, Kaaranvir Bohra, Ali Merchant, Zeeshan Khan, Mandana Karimi, Nisha Rawal, Sara Khan, Vinit Kakar, Babita Phogat, Swami Chakrapani, Tehseen Poonawalla, Siddhartha Sharma, Prince Narula, and Chetan Hansraj were also a part of the controversial show.
Kangana Ranaut’s Dhaakad witnessed a slow start at the box office.
According to trade analyst Ramesh Bala, Dhaakad made 50 lakh on its opening day.
He tweeted: “#Dhaakad early estimates for All-India Day 1 is 50 Lakhs Nett.”
Helmed by Razneesh Ghai, Dhaakad also features Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta.
Kangana Ranaut will also essay the role of Sita in a film titled Sita: The Incarnation, directed by Alaukik Desai.
Recently, Payal Rohatgi attended the premiere event of Dhaakad and said that Kangana Ranaut was rude to her.
She was part of the premiere just a few days after she wrote an angry note about Kangana Ranaut, Munawar Faruqui, Ekta Kapoor and Lock Upp on Instagram.
Payal Rohatgi has been criticising Kangana Ranaut for choosing Munawar Faruqui as the winner of Lock Upp, over her.
