Internet sensation Ranu Mondal won everyone’s hearts by singing Lata Mangeshkar’s ‘Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai’, in the video that went viral. Thereafter, she appeared on the reality show Superstar Singer, where Bollywood singer and composer Himesh Reshammiya spotted her and offered her a song from his upcoming fiilm Happy Hardy And Heer.

Now, in another video going viral, Ranu Mondal is seen snubbing a fan who approached her for a picture. In the video on Twitter, a woman comes to her and taps on her shoulder to ask for a picture. In response, Mondal is seen questioning the woman on why she touched her and saying, “Iska matlab kya hai? (What is the meaning of this)”

Soon after, netizens started criticising her, accusing her of being 'arrogant'. Twitter users were quick to make memes on the incident, accusing her of taking her ‘stardom too seriously’ and more.

There were also a few tweets supporting her, and asking everyone to respect her privacy.

Ranu was discovered by Atindra Chakraborty from Ranaghat, West Bengal. He shot a video of her singing and posted it on his Facebook page. She has now recorded three tracks for Himesh Reshammiya, and was compared to Lata Mangeshkar for singing her song.

When Lata Mangeshkar was asked about Ranu Mondal, she expressed happiness but with reservations. “Agar mere naam aur kaam se kissiko bhala hota hai toh main apne-aap ko khush-kismat samajhti hoon (If anyone gets benefited by my name and work then I feel fortunate).”
