A feud between Diana Khan and Aanchal Munjal
Reportedly, in 2016, Diana Khan got into a catfight with Aanchal Munjal on the sets of the film Ghayal Once Again. As per the sources, Diana and Aanchal were asked by the makers of the film to share the same vanity van. However, things heated up when Diana wanted to use the washroom, but the van was locked by Aanchal’s mother. A source from the set revealed the incident and said,
Usually, Aanchal does not like sharing vans as she may not be comfortable with the other person and there could be hygiene issues. At one point, Diana and her mother took all their stuff from the van, so she and her mom assumed that they had shifted out. That was when Aanchal’s mother locked the van since her belongings were inside. When Aanchal tried to explain why it was locked, she got hysterical and yelled at her. So, Aanchal’s mother also joined in the argument. We were silent witnesses.” Mid-Day
