Manikarnika actor Kangana Ranaut’s 7 most lethal statements that define her
Kangana Ranaut is the most vociferous actor in Bollywood who doesn’t bat an eyelid before speaking her heart out on issues that matter or calling out those not in her good books. The actor, who kickstarted the nepotism debate in the film industry that continues even today, hasn’t played a girl next door in any of her films in years. She plays a Maratha warrior Rani Laxmibai in her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi and has said that she will ‘destroy’ those who protest against her film. As Kangana continues to remain the most outspoken celebrity in the film industry, here are some of her powerful statements that not just leave an impact but also define the person she is.
Kangana issued a statement in reply to the Maharashtra Karni Sena’s warning to the makers of her film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi. “Four historians have certified Manikarnika, we have got censor certificate as well, Karni Sena has been conveyed this but they are continuing to harass me. If they don’t stop then they should know I am also a Rajput and I will destroy each one of them.”
Kangana recalled her horrible experiences in 2018 and told DNA in an interview, “There were only cases; about six to seven of them. People were trying to put me behind bars, can you believe that? They should make a film on my life also.” She was hinting at the several people she is at loggerheads with, while referring to her upcoming film Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, based on the life of Rani Laxmibai.
Kangana’s relationship with producer Karan Johar is well known after she called him the flag-bearer of nepotism on his chat show, Koffee With Karan. During the #MeToo movement, Kangana called out Karan for not saying anything on the issue. She went on to criticise his show in a chat with India Today, “I was seeing some promo that they have launched for this talk show. Again those same frivolous talks are going on. This one sleeping with this one, that one with that one. Making girls look like Barbie dolls, that is not done. And why men who change women like clothes being glorified? Has there been a woman who has been glorified like that.”
