A celebrity has power to influence the masses. That is one of the reasons why each and every word they say is scrutinised and has the ability to leave a great impact.
When Diljit Dosanjh supported farmers, he was hailed as a hero. Similarly, Kangana’s tweets in the wake of farmers’ protest have created quite a stir.
As a result, farmers are angry, and they want to boycott Kangana Ranaut’s films. After Kangana mocked the elderly women — Bilkis Dadi of Shaheen Bagh and Mahinder Kaur of Punjab — and accused them of accepting Rs 100 to take part in the protests, she rubbed farmers the wrong way.
“Vo rajneeti kar rahi hai… vo publicity ke liye kar rahi hai”
Kangana ka koi kasoor nahi hai… jismein jitni akkal hoti hai vo utna hi bolta hai”.
“Khud ko promote karne ke liye aadmi aisa kar deta hai… jaise Kangana Ji ne kiya hai”
“usne logo mein badnaami karayi hai… isse toh achcha aadmi chup rahe.”
Earlier as well, grapevine was abuzz that Punjab Cinema owners have met to discuss her tweets against farmers and are thinking to not screen her movies in cinemas. However, there hasn’t been any word on that since then.
Meanwhile, Ranaut has been expressing her opinion on the farmers’ protest on social media. In her tweets some time ago, she addressed the hate that she has been receiving for speaking up on issues.
“I have been honest about the film industry so most of them are against me, I opposed reservations most Hindus hate me, during Manikarnika’s release I fought with Karni Sena so Rajputs threatened me as well, I oppose Islamists many Muslims hate me, I fought with Khalistanis,” she wrote.
“So now most Sikhs are against me, my well-wishers tell me no political party likes a vote repellent like me, so clearly no political party appreciates me, most of you wonder why I do what I do. Well in a world beyond this world in the world of my CONSCIENCE I am appreciated.”
On the work front, Kangana Ranaut recently finished shooting for her forthcoming film Thalaivi, a biopic on the life of Indian politician and film actress J Jayalalithaa. She recently wrote a poem titled Rakh in which she expressed her wish that her ashes be rather scattered on the mountains than being immersed in Ganga post death.
