New Delhi: Bollywood ‘queen’ of sass Kangana Ranaut in a no holds barred interview on a popular television show talked about her personal life in a way like no actress of her generation has ever done.
Kangana discussed how her alleged affair with Hrithik Roshan affected her and what she went through during the entire legal battle episode. She made some explosive revelations about her personal life which made straight headlines. While there are many on the social media applauding Kangana for talking point blank, there is one Bollywood singer who feels otherwise.
Sona Mohapatra, who is known for not mincing words and is as fiery as Kangana when it comes to making statements took to her Instagram account and wrote:
I have always cheered loudly, in private & in public for you. Long, long before you turned queen et all but your current run across the airwaves regurgitating personal details of your love life over & over again, washing dirty linen in public & more so as part of a professional PR campaign before your film release is in bad taste. No two ways about it. Also, it does a big dis-service to the cause of feminism & fair play. Wish you well & wish you would rise above this muck & make your point through actions & your work. Your success doesn’t need this tabloid trail. Your well thought out & superbly worded open letters of the past, fearless interviews addressing larger issues, taking a stand, using legal recourse are welcome. The current ‘circus’, not.
This is just another opinion in the public domain from one working woman to another, from the heart & on an impulse. There is no PR machinery or team guiding me here.
I do believe that there are plenty of feminists in the opposite gender. Men who cheer the cause of outspoken, feisty, fierce & hard working women like you & me. We don’t ‘need’ them as such but let’s not forget them & also the thousands of amazing women who fight the good fight on a daily basis with dignity.
Life might not have been easy but you are in a great place now. More so to influence positive change. That is worthy of a daily celebration.
Also, today is Onam, a thanksgiving festival in the South. The mythology surrounding the festival is significant – it emphasizes the Hindu belief in cyclical nature of events, that no individual, no ruler and nothing lasts forever, except the virtues and self-understanding that overcomes all sorrow.
So, Happy Onam. Big love & healing to you. (P.S To the so called ‘journos’ hankering after this masala & asking those thaka hua questions.) #kanganaranaut #woman #India #Change #Gender #opinion #me #SonaSays”
Kangana starter ‘Simran’ is scheduled to hit the screens on September 15, 2017. It is helmed by National Award winning director Hansal Mehta.
