The controversy between Aditya Pancholi and Kangana Ranaut has taken a new turn as a video leaked to a leading news channel. Recently, there were reports that Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel had filed a complaint against Pancholi. The complaint accused Pancholi of assaulting and exploiting Kangana over a decade ago. But after Kangana named Aditya during an interview to a leading channel in 2017, Pancholi and his wife Zarina Wahab responded with a defamation case against Kangana the same year on October 14.
On March 25th, 2019 Pancholi got a letter from the Versova police that Rangoli had filed a case of assault and abuse against him. In reply to that, Pancholi alleged that Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui had earlier threatened him with a false rape case, which would be filed by Rangoli. He believes that it was a plan by Team Kangana to force him to drop the defamation case.
Aditya had the entire conversation recorded on tape and it has been obtained by a leading news channel. The video showed Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui allegedly threatening Aditya of a false rape case that would be filed by Rangoli Chandel.

However, Rangoli went on a twitter rant and explained that it’s the same complaint of ‘sexual harassment, physical violence, house arrest and molestation that Kangana had filed in 2007.’ Citing the interview Kangana did on Aapki Adalat, Rangoli said that Rizwan is a friend of Pancholi and reasoned that the actor can’t stop his client from speaking about her experiences.
Rangoli added that Kangana did not file a new case. According to her, it is the same old case that is being revived to ‘fight defamation suit,’ and there is ‘no attempt to defame him.’ She then posted an audio recording on Twitter of Rizwan speaking to Pancholi. The video has Rizwan saying that he considers Pancholi to be a brother.
Another video shared by Rangoli has the watermark of a popular entertainment website. On the video, an alleged eyewitness claimed that he saw Pancholi getting out of a car, grabbing Kangana’s hair and punching her. He claims to have intervened and stopped the assault. By then a couple of people had gathered as well and Kangana managed to escape.
