Kangana Ranaut is on a promotion spree. She has been extensively promoting her upcoming film Rangoon. She is also making headlines for her bold statements as well. Recently, she visited the sets the sets of Voice of India 2, where comedienne-actress Sugandha Mishra (who is an anchor of the show) and the actress had an awkward encounter!
Apparently, singers Salim Merchant and Shaan, who are coaches on the show, started pulling Sugandha's leg and asked her to mimic Kangana in front of her! Kangana took an offence and apparently, ignored the anchor throughout the show! She even said, "I feel like slapping her."
A source from the set was quoted by IANS as saying, "It was a nail biting moment after Kangana's shocking statement. It surely was an awkward moment for Sugandha, but she took it in a sporting spirit and continued with the shoot." But, now both the actresses have something else to say regarding this incident...

So, does this video clear all the rumours that are doing the rounds on slapgate incident (or) are the actresses covering up the issue?
This is not the first time that the Bollywood actors are offended by the jokes. It has to be recalled that many actors didn't want to be part of Comedy Nights Bachao because of its roast concept.
Even a few actors like John Abraham and Tannishtha Chatterjee didn't like the jokes cracked on them. It has to be recalled that Akshay Kumar lost his cool as a comedian made a racist comment on his Housefull 3 co-star Lisa Haydon!
