Hansal worked with Kangana for the 2017 film Simran. Talking about the actor, Hansal said that even though she is a ‘big star’, working with her was his ‘massive mistake’.

During a recent interview with Mashable India, when Hansal was asked if Kangana took over Simran's edit, Hansal replied, “Edit nahi takeover kia the usne, to be fair to her, but edit take over karne ke liye kuch tha nahi kyunki material hi vahi tha jo usne shoot karvaya tha.

She is a very talented actor, she is a very good actor, really really good actor who, I feel has limited herself by making films about herself.

You need not make all the characters become what you want to believe you are."

Hansal then spoke about Kangana’s song from Dhaakad titled She’s On Fire and said, “Abhi kuch gaana aaya uska… (She had a song recently…) she is a woman on fire… you are basically talking about yourself.

You know these are things you aspire for yourself, you put it there.

It’s not even my place to criticize what choices she makes.

She’s a big star, even today and she is a very good actor, I maintain that and working with her, we didn’t gel. Working with her was a massive mistake.”
