Controversies• During her initial days in Bollywood, she was in a relationship with Aditya Pancholi, who was around 20 years older than her and already married. However, things got complicated when she accused Aditya of violence and broke up with him.

• After her break up with Adhyayan Suman, he said, "I was emotionally badgered because of my relationship. Kangna only knows how to use, abuse and throw. She has flooded me with abusive calls ever since the truth about her fake claims came out. I have remained silent on her abusive nature for so many years, but she is crossing all limits now. Since I haven’t been taking her calls, her aides have been calling my mother and harassing her."

• She is known for her bold statements, but she made a blunder during a chat show by saying that, "Just good friends could be friendship plus f**k buddies. Just friends in Bollywood mean f**k buddies who are little promoted."

• During the 2012 Blender Pride Fashion Week, in Mumbai, she suffered a wardrobe malfunction while walking the ramp for designer Gavin Miguel.

• She and Hrithik Roshan had a media-led fight which started off with her calling him as a "silly ex", and later resulted in full-blown name-calling, e-mail leaking, legal battle.

• In 2018, during the MeToo movement, Kangana Ranaut alleged that Vikas Bahl had harassed her on the sets of 'Queen.'

• In January 2019, just before the release of her film 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi,' the Karni Sena threatened the makers of the film that if the image of Rani Lakshmibai is maligned in the film, then makers will have to "face consequences." To which Kangana strongly replied, "Four historians have certified 'Manikarnika', we have got censor certificate as well, Karni Sena has been conveyed this but they are continuing to harass me. If they don't stop then they should know I am also a Rajput and I will destroy each one of them."

• Kangana Ranaut and Sanjay Raut of the Shiv Sena locked in a bitter war of words since Kangana termed Mumbai unsafe after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Earlier, her comment that she feared living in Mumbai had led to a severe backlash from the Shiv Sena, and the state's home minister Anil Deshmukh said she had no right to stay in Mumbai. Kangana accused Sena leaders like Sanjay Raut of threatening her and remarked "why is Mumbai feeling like Pakistan-occupied- Kashmir." This comment escalated the row between Kangana and Shiv Sena. [1]NDTV Later, the Centre government sanctioned "Y-plus" security cover to Kangana Ranaut; with this, the actress had a total of 11 CRPF personnel for her personal protection. [2]The Times of India

• Amid the row between Kangana Ranaut and Maharashtra Government, the BMC officials served a notice under section 354/ A of the Municipal Corporation Act after inspection to Kangana Ranaut and pasted the notice at her office gate in Mumbai.

• In December 2020, she attracted controversy after she misidentified an elderly woman as the 'Dadi' (Bilkis Bano of Shaheen Bagh fame) through a tweet in which she doubted the intention of her taking part in the ongoing farmers' protest against the central government's newly drafted farmer's bills. Later, the elderly woman was found to be a Sikh woman, Mahinder Kaur.

• On 1 February 2021, she received a summon from a metropolitan magistrate court in Mumbai to appear on 1 March 2021. The summon was issued after a criminal complaint filed by lyricist Javed Akhtar in which he alleged that on 19 July 2020, during an interview, Ms. Ranaut linked his name to Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput's alleged suicide case. [5]The Hindu

• On 4 May 2021, her Twitter account was permanently suspended after she posted a series of controversial tweets. Following the result of the 2021 West Bengal Assembly Elections, violence erupted in the state, and Kangana took to Twitter to give a piece of her mind and said that violence could only be stopped through violence.
