MUMBAI: Kangana Ranaut unleashed a caustic attack on international pop star Rihanna for the latter's Twitter post about the farmers protest at Singhu border in Delhi.
While the Bollywood actress got busy in trying to instigate a war of words with the global star, Ranaut's Once Upon a Time in Mumbai co-star Randeep Hooda shared a cheeky post of his own. Randeep Hooda shared a clip from their 2010 film in which Kangana Ranaut essayed the role of a Bollywood actress named Rehana Shergill. The similarity between the names of the character Ranaut played and the pop singer she attacked was not lost on Mr Hooda.
In the short clip from Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai which he posted on social media, Randeep Hooda, who played ACP Agnel Wilson in the movie, is shown a picture of Kangana Ranaut and asked if he knows her.
"Isse kaun nahi jaanta - mashoor film star Rehana (Who doesn't know her - she's Rehana, the famous film star)," he says.
Randeep Hooda shared the video clip on Twitter and Instagram with the caption "Saajish bahut badi hai" (The conspiracy is a big one). He also added a laughing face emoji and the hashtags #Throwback and #OnceUponATimeInMumbai.
The throwback video gone viral with over 1 lakh views on Instagram within half an hour of being shared.
One Instagram user commented, "Savage," while another praised the post as "legendary."
Kangana Ranaut responded to a tweet by Rihanna in which the international star came out in support of the farmers protesting on the outskirts of Delhi since November against the centre's agricultural laws.
