Taapsee Pannu stars in ‘Dobaaraa’, directed by Anurag Kashyap and produced by Ekta Kapoor. The trailer of the movie was launched on Wednesday in Mumbai. At the launched event, Ekta was asked about Kangana Ranaut calling Taapsee a ‘sasta (cheaper)' version of herself. The producer responded to the question by saying it was not her or the media's task to ‘play them against each other’. Ekta further added that there was ‘only one similarity’ between the two actors – they are both ‘amazing trailblazer women’.

Taking to Twitter, Kangana had tweeted about Taapsee in March 2021, and dubbed her a 'sasti' actor. Kangana wrote, "You will always remain sasti because you are sab rapists ka feminist... your ring master (Anurag) Kashyap was raided in 2013 as well for tax chori... government official’s report is out if you aren’t guilty go to court against them come clean on this ... come on sasti. Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel had also called Taapsee a ‘sasti copy (cheap version)’ of the actor.

The producer, who has worked with both Kangana and Taapsee – Ekta produced Judgemental Hai Kya, which featured Kangana and Rajkumar Rao, and was also the producer for Kangana's reality show Lock Upp – dubbed both of them ‘brilliant actors’ on Wednesday. When asked to respond to Kangana’s dig aimed at Taapsee and calling her ‘sasti’ copy of herself, Ekta Kapoor said, "There is only one similarity, both (Kangana and Taapsee) are amazing trailblazer women and to play them against each other is not your and my job. We are women, we adjust each other’s crown, not remove it.”

Furthermore, Ekta Kapoor also talked about her experience working with Kangana and Taapsee and stated, “It’s an amazing thing to collaborate with such amazing actors. If there’s an interesting project, I will only approach the actor and request them to read the script. So, it is a heartening thing to work with great actors. They bring in a lot more, Kangana is a brilliant actor and so is Taapsee."

Taapsee will next be seen in Dobaaraa. The film will hit the theatres on 19th August and also stars Rahul Bhatt, Saswata Chatterjee and Pavail Gulati, among others. The film marks the reunion of director Anurag Kashyap and Taapsee following Manmarziyaan.
