Kangana Ranaut rushed to Instagram after returning from the Khar police station to say that this country devalues nationalism.
Kangana Ranaut, a Bollywood actress, released a statement in reaction to an FIR lodged against her for allegedly making derogatory remarks about farmer protests. “This country devalues nationalists,” she wrote on Instagram after returning from the Khar police station.
As she arrived at the Khar police station in Mumbai, Kangana posted a photo of herself surrounded by the press. “Another day, another visit to the police station, hundreds of politically driven FIR’s and hours and hours of questioning, the actor stated in the photo, dressed in a saree and without a mask,” she added.
She went on to say that people in positions of power can do anything for a vote bank, even “promote terrorism.” “This country continues to mistreat and denigrate nationalists, and if you love your country, you are up against a formidable foe,” she concluded. Those in power would prioritise vote banks, and to do so, they would even encourage terrorism, so it’s a lonely road ahead, but don’t worry, it’ll be fine.
The Thalaivii actress had applied with the Bombay High Court earlier this month to get the FIR against her quashed for allegedly injuring the Sikh community’s feelings. Amarjeetsingh Sandhu, together with members of the Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) and the Shiromani Akali Dal, filed the FIR. The actress was summoned to the Khar police station to give her statement.
Kangana Ranaut is currently directing Tiku Weds Sheru, a film starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Avneet Kaur, for Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Avneet Kaur. This is also her first time producing a film. Tejas, Dhaakad, and Emergency are among the films she has worked on.
