You ask Kangana Ranaut on any issue, on any subject, the actress has the answer to everything. Now recently, she has said something on Marvel Studios’ superhit franchise ‘Avengers’ and other superhero films of Hollywood, which can surprise anyone. Kangana says that these films and their characters have been taken from Hindu scriptures Vedas. Kangana compared ‘Thor’ to Hanuman, while describing ‘Iron Man’ as Karna of ‘Mahabharata’. While ‘Avengers’ superheroes are said to be part of American comic books published by Marvel Comics.
Kangana Ranaut said this in an interview given to ETimes for the promotion of her film ‘Dhaakad’, which is releasing on May 20.
During the interview, Kangana Ranaut was asked, “If you want to play a superhero, then you will do it in a comic book style like people do in Hollywood or will you take inspiration from Indian mythology for it?” In response, Kangana said, “Obviously I will take the approach of my country to play the superhero. I feel that Hollywood draws a lot of inspiration from our mythology and stories. When I look at their superheroes, it seems that they are taken from our Vedas. For example, ‘Iron Man’, his armor can be compared to the armor of Karna of ‘Mahabharata’. Thor and his hammer can be compared with Hanuman ji and his mace.”
Kangana Ranaut further said, “I feel like ‘Avengers’ is inspired by our ‘Mahabharata’. The way of showing them is different, but the stories of these superheroes are taken from our Vedas. They also accept this. I would also like to do something original. Why should I limit myself to Hollywood for inspiration?”
