Nirmala Seetharaman, Hon’ble Defence minister of India appreciates Ms Kangana Ranaut’s support for the Indian Armed Forces & her wish to visit the Indian military bases to support soldiers.
I’m going to stand for the National Anthem, if the country needs me, I’ll be there. I’ll be always there for the Forces: says Kangana Ranaut
Kangana Ranaut while attending session at the Rising India Summit shares her views on Nationalism:
” I’m what my country is. Why are you ashamed of your nation. When Americans stand up to the national anthem, they do it with hands to their heart then why are we ashamed to do that? ” She further ads “Self respect of our people needs to rise. Nowadays, it’s cool to say bad things about your own nation. The young generation is always complaining. This attitude is not okay. Desh ganda hai toh aap mehmaan hain kya? Saaf karo.”
While being questioned her being an outsider who made it, she opens up “the kind of work I want to do, I am still doing it. The people who I want to collaborate with creatively are still there, the people I don’t care about, so be it, so it’s okay. With power comes lot of sacrifices,”.
For Kangana “fear is an internal process. It’s not something someone else will instill in you.I don’t want to be fearful even when I get hurt. I say things which look evident to me. When I speak out I get love, I live an open life, but the price is stress. I don’t care about materialistic gains.”.
Kangana further ads “the world doesn’t need to be perfect, it needs to be balanced. The myth of a fairytale that nothing bad can ever happen to me has burst. My narrative is that of an underdog.”
The actress also opines on our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and claims herself to be his biggest fan: “I am a big Modi fan. We need to have a good role model. Modi’s victory was not just his victory. the fact that a chaiwala’s won is a victory of the democracy.”.
Later she also shares her personal views on politics . Kangana says “personally, I feel politics is a wonderful field. Politics is often misunderstood. But what I don’t like is that fashion sense of politicians. Don’t mind entering politics if they don’t change my fashion sense”.
When the queen is on mood to talk how can she not comment on the latest happening on Bollywood? True to her nature she also shared her views on Swara Bhaskar’s piece on Padmavaat and what followed
“The way she was bullied was our loss. As a society we failed. She’s a legitimate artist and she has a right. I personally didn’t agree but somewhere deep down I was pleased. It was heart breaking to see how she was treated for her piece. I’m sure Swara might not be affected by it. She’ll come back in 6 months and write again. But million of other women will get affected and be wary of voicing their opinion.” she concludes.
