In a now-deleted tweet, producer Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions published a poster from Ungli to commemorate the film’s seven-year anniversary. Under Karan Johar’s brand, Ungli was financed. According to a Hindustan Times article, it allegedly erased Kangana Ranaut off the film poster.
It should be mentioned that Kangana Ranaut and Karan have been feuding for more than four years. According to HT, who had captured a screengrab of the now-deleted tweet, the amended Ungli poster included Emraan Hashmi, Angad Bedi, Randeep Hooda, Neil Bhoopalam, and Sanjay Dutt. However, Kangana Ranaut, who appeared alongside Emraan in the initial poster, was absent. Kangana’s withdrawal did not sit well with her admirers, who took to social media to criticise Dharma Productions and Karan Johar.

“Y’all really just cropped out Kangana, have some shame KJo,” one Twitter user wrote. “Anyway… Adharma Production doesn’t deserve Kangana,” another wrote, while a third said, “Kangana hate is so visible”.
Last month, Kangana Ranaut and Karan Johar both earned Padma Shri Awards. Kangana spoke honestly about her relationship with Karan Johar at the Times Now Summit, which she attended after the Padma ceremony. In an episode of Koffee with Karan, Kangana referred to the host as “the flag bearer of nepotism.”
Revealing why she didn’t meet Karan at the Padma Awards, Kangana quipped, “Our ceremonies were at different times. I think they went out of their way to keep us in different time slots.”
Kangana further said, “I tried to spot him around and he wasn’t there. I would have spoken to him. There can be conflicts and disagreements but that doesn’t mean that you do not believe in co-existing. That’s what I speak about and giving equal opportunities to all, be it outsider-insider, underprivileged, nepotism. I encourage co-existence of all kids so I was not going to misbehave.”
