Internet-famous Ranu Mondal has gone viral again and not in a good way this time. Ms Mondal, who has had an incredible rags-to-riches story after being discovered singing at a railway station, has offended some on social media by brushing off a fan who tapped her shoulder, presumable to ask for a selfie. In footage circulating online, Ranu Mondal is approached by a woman in what seems to be a grocery store. When the woman taps her on the shoulder, Ms Mondal round on her and is seen asking “Yeh kya hota hai?” while returning the shoulder tap. A fairly natural response to having one’s personal space unexpectedly invaded, we would say – but the Internet seems to think the rudeness was on Ms Mondal’s part and has accused her of acting like a celebrity. “We made her a celebrity and now see her attitude,” wrote one critic.
Take a look at some of the tweets here:

Ranu Mondal became an overnight sensation after a video of her singing Ek Pyar Ka Nagma Hai – originally sung by Lata Mangeshkar in 1972 film Shor – at Ranaghat railway station in West Bengal went viral. Almost instantly, Ms Mondal’s fortunes changed; reports of actor Salman Khan buying her a flat turned out to be untrue but composer Himesh Reshammiya offered her two songs, giving Ranu Mondal a legitimate singing career.
Last month, Ranu Mondal trended again after she sang the song Tujhe Dekha Toh Yeh Jaana Sanam from Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s 1995 film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Ms Mondal was appearing as a special guest on the Malayalam television reality show Comedy Stars.
Take a look at the video here:
Ranu Mondal recorded two songs for Himesh Reshammiya’s film Happy Hardy And Heer. Himesh also invited her to the singing reality show Superstar Singer, where he features as one of the judges. Whether or not her career takes off remains to be seen; meantime, the Internet thinks she needs to learn humility.
