The Punjabi Film Industry has been the talk of the town for its controversies and clashes between various parties. And this time it is about two movies. The Punjabi Cinema has recently released two of its highly awaited movies in theaters which are currently garnering appreciation from the audience. Yes, we are talking about Lehmberginni and the Medal. And it looks like the makers of the two movies are having a cold war and clashing with each other. Earlier, the team of Medal had targeted Lehmberginni and its makers for delay in its release. And now, Ishaan Chopra from the team of Lehmberginni has stepped ahead to give back a befitting reply to the Medal team. 

While Lehmberginni stars Ranjit Bawa and Mahira Sharma in the leading roles, Jayy Randhawa and Baani Sandhu are the leading cast of Medal. Earlier the two films were scheduled to clash with each other as both were scheduled to hit the silver screens on 2 June 2023. But due to the delays, Medal’s release date was pushed to 3 June.
