Subsequent to the tragic demise of late Indian actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Kangana Ranaut has been fighting for justice.
Since then the actress has been making headlines. Not only has she been vocal about her opinions regarding the death of Rajput but also made sharp statements, calling out several B-Town celebs,
From the ongoing investigation of Rajput’s case to debates around mental illness and talking about the alleged ‘movie mafia’ in Bollywood, Ranaut has put the others in the shade with her controversial tweets. It would suffice to say that this woman is unstoppable!
Kangana Ranaut (born 23 March 1987) is an Indian actress and filmmaker who works in Hindi films. The recipient of several awards, including three National Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards, she has featured six times in Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 list. In 2020, the Government of India honoured her with the Padma Shri, the country’s fourth highest civilian award.
Born in Bhambla, a small town in Himachal Pradesh, Ranaut initially aspired to become a doctor at the insistence of her parents. Determined to build her own career path, she relocated to Delhi at age sixteen, where she briefly became a model.
After training under the theatre director Arvind Gaur, Ranaut made her feature film debut in the 2006 thriller Gangster, for which she was awarded the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. She received praise for portraying emotionally intense characters in the dramas Woh Lamhe (2006), Life in a… Metro (2007) and Fashion (2008). For the last of these, she won the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Ranaut featured in the commercially successful films Raaz: The Mystery Continues (2009) and Once Upon a Time in Mumbaai (2010), though she was criticised for being typecast in neurotic roles.
A comic role opposite R. Madhavan in Tanu Weds Manu (2011) was well-received, though this was followed by a series of brief, glamorous roles in films that failed to propel her career forward. This changed in 2013 when she played a mutant in the science fiction film Krrish 3, one of the highest-grossing Indian films.
Ranaut went on to win two consecutive National Film Awards for Best Actress for playing a naive woman in the comedy-drama Queen (2014) and a dual role in the comedy sequel Tanu Weds Manu: Returns (2015), which ranks as the biggest-earning female-led Hindi film.
She then starred in a series of commercial failures, with the exception of her co-directorial venture, the biopic Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi (2019), in which she portrayed the titular warrior.
Ranaut is credited in the media as one of the most fashionable celebrities in the country, and she has launched her own clothing lines for the brand Vero Moda. Her reputation for expressing her opinions in public and her troubled personal and professional relationships have frequently sparked controversy.
Earlier this month, the Queen actress yet again took over headlines for her retaliation to an Indian politician from the Shiv Sena party, Sanjay Raut’s remarks. He asked her not to come back to Mumbai because of her explosive tweets on Mumbai Police’s safety.
Today once again, Ranaut targeted Raut and even shared that the city felt like PoK (a term India use for Azad Jammu and Kashmir).
After the actor’s controversial comments, people began calling her names and bash her. So much so that a popular hashtag #KanganaPagalHai started trending on Twitter. As it appears, Ranaut has been trending all over on social media for making sharp and unfiltered statements.
The 33-year-old actor calling Mumbai ‘PoK’ did not go down well with Indians as well as many celebrities on social media.
Soon enough, the #KanganaPagalHai began trending on Twitter. People called on the star to have a filter and mince on her words before tweeting her opinions.
Indians insisting her to go to Pakistan
Meanwhile, Pakistanis are like don’t even think about it!
Kangana Ranaut hits back
In response to the disrespectful trends, Ranaut shared a tweet saying that all bullies are having a meltdown and cannot come up with anything logical.
Moreover, in another tweet, she spoke about mental illness and how it is being used as a slur against her. She added the ‘left gang’ along with ‘mafia’ are participating in this trend and using mental illness to shame her.
In fact, she wrote, “Mental illness is being used as a slur against me, entire left gang along with mafia is enthusiastically participating in #KanganaPagalHai trend, the same way mental illness was used to shame and blackmail Sushant, please don’t use mental illness loosely.”
Ranaut is not only considered a brilliant performer but she is also one of the most outspoken actresses in Bollywood. Clearly, the actress never shies away from making bold statements and targeting big names of the industry.
Pakistani actor Feroze Khan recently shut the Indian actress down for Pakistan’s in her tweets to gain attention. Earlier, Momina Mustehsan and Muneeb Butt slammed Ranaut for promoting ‘anti-Pakistan’ sentiments.
