In a series of angry tweets, Rangoli Chandel slammed Forbes India. She wrote, "Yeh @forbes_india ek number ka fraud hai, I openly challenge them to prove even one celebrity income they have printed in their magazine, sab PR hai, Kangana pays more tax than her entire income mentioned in the poll...," and continued, ".... show us who paid how much tax. You can't just assume people's income on what basis? Please reply," (sic).
"Even Kangana doenst know how much she made in this year, only her accounts department and I know, we tell her all the details, and all that info is super confidential....," she wrote and added, "as this financial year not even closed yet only advance tax is filed and already these lucca jurnos pretending jaise they have access to whole industry's account," (sic), Rangoli said.
She concluded, "Dear @forbes_india if you tell me your reliable sources I will openly say sorry, but you can't write anything that too after smoking hash..." (sic).
