Let us tell you that Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who is often in the headlines for her statements, has once again given a controversial statement. This time she called the freedom of the country as a ‘Bheeek’ (alms). According to the actress, the freedom that India got in 1947 was alms. The real freedom got in 2014.
This statement of the actress is being criticized all around. People are trolling Kangana on social media. Actually, Kangana Ranaut had come to participate in the 2021 summit of Times Now.
During a conversation with Times Now journalist Navika Kumar, Kangana said, “If freedom is found in begging, can it be freedom?” Kangana said- “Freedom got in 1947 was begging, real freedom got in 2014.”
Kangana further said- “Savarkar, Rani Laxmibai, leader Subhash Chandra Bose if I talk about these people, these people knew that blood will flow but also remember that one Indian should not shed the blood of another Indian. They paid the price of freedom, of course. But that was not freedom, it was begging. The freedom I got was given in 2014.
On this statement of the actress, the people sitting in the audience there started applauding. Journalist Navika Kumar said, “That’s why everyone calls you a saffron.” In response, Kangana says- “After this I am going to have 10 more cases.”
