Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s new film Tejas was released in theatres this week. She took to her social media platforms to urge people to watch films in theatres. She also shared how there are low footfalls in theatres after the coronavirus pandemic times while giving a response to her new film getting a lukewarm opening.
Reacting to the post of Kangana, actor and politician Prakash Raj who is known to be seen at loggerheads shared on social media, “India has got Independence just recently in 2014… please wait ..it will pick up.. #justasking.” You can check the tweet here.
Kangana after the release of her film shared in a video posted on social media, “Friends, my film Tejas released in theatres yesterday. Whoever has seen this film, has been giving us a lot of appreciation and blessings. But friends, after Covid 19, our Hindi film industry has not been able to recover totally. 99% films are not even given a chance by the audience. I know that in today’s age, everyone has a mobile phone, and TV at home. But community viewing, in theatres which is an important part of our civilization from the very beginning. Dance, arts… every type of dance, folklores… are all essential. So, it is my earnest request to the Hindi film audience and specially the multiplex ones… if you liked Uri, Mary Kom and Neerja, you will also like Tejas.”
Filmmaker Deepa Mehta also did not agree with Kangana’s statement about the ongoing crisis situation in Israel and Hamas. For the unversed, Kangana recently met Israel’s ambassador Naor Gilon, and extended her support to the nation.
“As a Hindu nation, the Hindu genocides that have continued for centuries, we identify a lot with Jews and we strongly believe as we deserve a Bharat dedicated to Hindus, Jews also deserve one nation and they can’t give us one that land is rather very inhumane and stingy of the Islamic world where they have 2nd largest amount of countries in the whole globe which is primarily dominated by the Christian countries. So I think what you guys are fighting for is rightfully yours and we as a Hindu nation, we stand in Israel’s support,” Kangana said.
Reacting to the Queen actor’s comments on the matter, Deepa tweeted, “OMG. Who let her loose?”
However, Kangana didn’t rest in peace when people were constantly trolling her for her views and comments. She said, “All those who are wishing me ill, their lives will be forever miserable because they will have to see my glory every day for the rest of their lives, since I left home at the age of 15 with nothing I am consistently chiseling my own fate and there have been enough evidence that I am destined to do significant things for the cause of woman empowerment and for my nation Bharat.”
“For their own mental health I request them to join my fan clubs that way they will be aligned with the larger universal plan, I want my well wishers to be kind to them show them the way,” she signed off.
