Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has reacted on B-town celebrities showing their support for #BlackLivesMatter but now speaking up much on local issues!
The recent killing of a black man named George Floyd had led to a mass movement in the US. People on social media are talking about #BlackLivesMatter and so are our Bollywood celebs. However, the actress Kangana Ranaut is upset about how they do not talk much about social issues.
Speaking to Pinkvilla, Kangana said, “The Sadhu lynching happened a couple of weeks ago; still no one said a word. It happened in Maharashtra where most of these celebrities reside…Bollywood anyway is a derived name from Hollywood. It is a shame they [Bollywood celebrities] continue to live in a bubble and never fail to jump on the bandwagon, which can give them two minutes of fame, but ‘white people’ must drive the bandwagon. Perhaps, it is because of their pre-independence colonial slavery genes.”
The actress has always called out to the hypocrisy of the industry. She had earlier blasted at the celebs for their silence over recent protests organised against the Citizenship Amendment Act. She had called the a section of the industry coward and spineless.
Kangana added on saying, “Even for environmental issues, you see them fight for a white teenage kid but so many incredible elderly women and even children. They are doing exceptionally well in India on environmental matters without any help or support. Some of them were honoured with the Padma Shri award. I was amazed to see their stories, but they never get the same acknowledgement from the industry. Perhaps, sadhus or tribal people aren’t fancy enough for the Bollywood crowd or their followers.”
