Captioning the article, Kangana tweeted: “This is what @priyankachopra has to say about bollywood, people ganged up on her, bullied her and chased her out of film industry” a self made woman was made to leave India. Everyone knows Karan Johar had banned her.”
She even said that Karan “harassed” Priyanka, which caused her to leave the country.
In another tweet, she wrote, “Media wrote extensively about her fallout with Karan Johar because of her friendship with SRK and movie mafia Cruella who is always looking for vulnerable outsiders saw a perfect punching bag in PC and went all out in harassing her to a point where she had to leave India.”

His gang and mafia PR should be raided and held accountable for harassing outsiders.”
