The founders of the Koo app welcomed Kangana Ranaut ‘home’ as her Twitter account was permanently suspended yesterday. They invited her to freely express her opinions on their platform.
After Kangana Ranaut’s Twitter account was permanently suspended on Tuesday for violating the social media platform’s policies, founders of the homegrown Koo app welcomed her to their platform. They said it had been ‘like her home’.
Koo co-founder Aprameya Radhakrishna shared Kangana’s first post after she joined the platform in Feburary and wrote, “This was @kanganarofficial’s first koo. She‘s right in saying Koo is like her home while everything else is rented.”
In her first post, she had said, “Hello everyone …. working nights this is often lunch break for #Dhaakad crew. why not Koo now. this is often a replacement place will take time to urge fimiliar magar bhade ka ghar bhade ka hota hai, apna ghar kaisa bhi ho apna hota hai (a place taken on rent isn’t one’s own, your own place is usually yours).”

Mayank Bidawatka, another co-founder of Koo, also welcomed Kangana with a post. “@kanganarofficial Kangana ji, yeh aapka ghar hai. Yahaan aap swabhimaan se apne vichaar sabke saamne rakhein (this is your home. Express your opinions here with pride).”
Kangana was banned by Twitter after her posts on the recent West Bengal assembly elections. A spokesperson for the platform said that she has violated its rules on several occasions, especially the ‘hateful conduct’ and ‘abusive behaviour’ policies.
In a statement, responding to her ban, queen actress had said that she has ‘many platforms’ to convey her opinions to the general public. “Twitter has only proved my point they’re Americans and by birth, a White feels entitled to enslave a brown person, they need to inform you what to think, speak or do. Fortunately I even have many platforms I can use to boost my voice including my very own art within the sort of cinema but my heart goes bent the people of this nation who are tortured, enslaved and censored for thousands of years and still there’s without stopping to the suffering,” she said.
Earlier yesterday, Kangana Ranaut’s sister Rangoli Chandel said she will take action against designer Anand Bhushan after he refuses to work with her, in her instagram post she had said, “This person Anand Bhushan is trying to get mileage on Kangana’s name we are not associated with him in anyway we don’t even know him”
For the unversed, Anand had shared a press release that read, “In view of certain events today, we have taken a decision to remove all collaboration images with Kangana Ranaut from our social media channels. We also pledge never to be associated with her in any capacity in the future. We as a brand do not support hate speech.(sic)”
Besides Anand Bhushan, dressmaker Rimzim Dadu also said that she won’t collaborate with Kangana in any professional capacity.
