Kangana Ranaut Actress says indulging in violence over Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAA) is not a very reasonable thing to do, in a democratic country like India.
She asks people “What gives you the right to burn buses, trains and create ruckus in the country? A bus costs around Rs 70-80 lakh, and that is not a small amount. Have you seen the condition of the people in our country? People in our country are dying of hunger and malnutrition and look at what we are doing we are damaging public property. It is not a reasonable thing for people to indulge in violence,” said Kangana.
“I also feel that in the name of democracy – this is my very personal opinion -we’re still hooked to the pre-Independence era, where our country was under siege or bondage, and people had captured us by force or the gun. Going on strikes, shutting down the country or not paying taxes against those people was considered cool. But in today’s democracy, your leader is someone from among you. He is not from Japan or China or someplace else,” said Kangana, at the trailer launch of her upcoming film “Panga”. She attended this event with the film’s director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, his co-actress Richa Chadha, and composers Shankar Mahadevan and Loy Mendonsa.
Seeking support for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, she said: “Our leader came from a very small place and with a lot of difficulties made something of himself with hard work, and we have won on his merits and he has written everything in his manifesto and then won, and now when he is fulfilling everything he promised, that’s democracy, is it not? So we should support our Prime Minister.
“Panga” is a sports drama that also features Jassi Gill, Neena Gupta, and Pankaj Tripathi. As the name depicted Panga means to mess around with something. The story also depicts the struggle of a Kabaddi player and her experience of messing around with life, Kangana said: “I think every time in my life I took ‘panga’, I achieved growth. When I was 15 years old, I ended up taking ‘panga’ with my father and that was the most stupid thing to do It led to a lot of problems in our life. But the fact is if I hadn’t gone ahead and taken that ‘panga’, I wouldn’t have been here, in the Bollywood. So every ‘panga’ has given a new landmark in my life. I wouldn’t exchange where I am today for anything.”
