"Geedaron ka ek jhund aur ek sherni .... mazaa aayega (A pack of jackals and a lioness… this will be fun)."
Kangana had earlier accused Javed Akhtar of threatening her. In an interview with Pinkvilla, she had said, "Once Javed Akhtar had called me to his house and told me that Rakesh Roshan and his family are very big people. If you don’t apologise to them, you will have nowhere to go. They will put you in jail, and eventually, the only path would be that of destruction…you will commit suicide. These were his words. Why did he think if I don’t apologise to Hrithik Roshan, I would have to commit suicide? He shouted and yelled at me. I was shaking in his house."
