As Ungli turned seven years old, Dharma Productions’ official Twitter address distributed a poster of the film to celebrate the milestone. However, it appears to have been digitally modified to remove Kangana Ranaut, who is embroiled in a long-running feud with producer Karan Johar.
The modified Ungli poster featured Emraan Hashmi, Angad Bedi, Randeep Hooda, Neil Bhoopalam and Sanjay Dutt. However, Kangana, who was next to Emraan in the original poster, was not seen anywhere. The omission did not escape the attention of the fans, who called Dharma Productions and Karan.
“You all cut Kangana, you’re a little ashamed of KJo,” one Twitter user wrote. “Anyway … Adharma Production doesn’t deserve Kangana,” wrote another, while a third said “Kangana hatred is so visible.”
Ungli, directed by Rensil D’Silva, released in 2014. The film marks the only collaboration between Karan and Kangana so far.
During an appearance at Koffee With Karan in 2017, Kangana called Karan the “flag bearer of nepotism” and the “movie mafia”, which marked the beginning of their ongoing struggle. She often accused him of conspiring to sabotage the careers of foreigners and instead promoted star children.
Last month, Karan and Kangana went to Delhi to receive Padma Shri, but they did not cross paths with each other. Speaking about the same thing at Times Now Summit, she said: “Our ceremonies took place at different times. I think they tried to keep us at different times … I tried to notice him around, but he wasn’t there. “

Kangana said he would have spoken to Karan if he had met at the ceremony. “There may be conflicts, there may be disagreements, but that doesn’t mean you don’t believe in coexistence. That’s what I believe in, coexistence. I encourage coexistence of all kinds, “she said.
