Social media can be an unpredictable place for sure. It can create overnight sensations and sometimes it can pull someone down in an instant. The most recent example of the power of the internet was Ranu Mondal. The 59-year-old singer was discovered when she was singing at the railway station in Ranaghat, West Bengal and her video went viral on social media.
Since then, she has been the poster of the power of social media as it was netizens who changed her life completely. However, things took a downward turn when a video of the singer went viral recently.
In the clip, Ranu can be seen at a supermarket where a female fan approached her for a selfie and held her hand. The singer got upset with this and was seen lashing out her and was heard saying 'yeh kya hota hai, what does this mean?'
Take a look at the video featuring Ranu Mondal:
Another one commented, "Ohh .. itna ghamand.. hum logo ne hi tume famouse Kiya madam. Or mint lagege hum hi niche patak denge."
A lot of people also tweeted about this. One such tweet reads, "Really sad we all twitterati supp her when her station vala video came see her behaviour after becoming celebrity Such insult of any fan is pathetic"
The singer shot to fame with Lata Mangeshkar's song Ek Pyaar Ka Nagma Hai, post which she got a chance to sing with Himesh Reshammiya for his film Happy Hardy and Heer.
