She alleged on Twitter that Johar's latest film 'Gunjan Saxena The Kargil Girl' was 'anti-army'.

Actress Kangana Ranaut on Tuesday has requested the Indian government to take back the Padma Shri honour that was conferred on filmmaker Karan Johar.

On the verified account, @KanganaTeam, she re-shared a post related to Johar's latest production Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl.

The tweet was in reference to Flight Lieutenant Srividya Rajan, who was Gunjan Saxena's course-mate at the Udhampur Airforce base. In the tweet, it was also mentioned that it was not Saxena but Rajan who was the first woman to fly to Kargil, and said that a scene -- where a female IAF trainee pilot is asked to arm-wrestle with her male counterpart to prove that she is fit for Air Force -- is false. The tweet also mentioned the film had twisted facts.

Sharing the tweet, Kangana wrote on Twitter: "I request government of India to take KJO's PadmaShri back, he openly intimidated me and asked me to leave the industry on an international platform, conspired to sabotage Sushanth's career, he supported Pakistan during Uri battle and now antinational film against our Army."
