Kangana Ranaut recently said that 'the freedom we got in 1947 was a 'bheek', the citizen of India got real freedom in 2014.' Her comment has sparked a fresh controversy.
Actress Kangana Ranaut has reacted on the uproar over her controversial ‘India got freedom in 2014’ comment. She took to Instagram and wrote, “Even though I clearly mentioned that 1857 freedom fight was the first revolution that was curbed… which led to more atrocities and cruelties from the British and almost a century was given to us in Gandhi's begging bowl… Jaa aur ro ab (Go cry some more).”
She was reacting to Varun Gandhi, who had criticised her over her freedom statement.
It all started at the Times Now Summit 2021 on Wednesday, when the 'Dhaakad' actress said that 'the freedom we got in 1947 was a 'bheek', the citizen of India got real freedom in 2014.' Kangana, who was recently given the Padma Shri, was apparently referring to the BJP coming to power in 2014.
Politician and BJP MP Varun Gandhi criticised her comment in a tweet. "Insulting the sacrifice of Mahatma Gandhi sometimes, respecting his killer sometimes, and now the disdain for the sacrifices of Mangal Pandey, Rani Laxmibai, Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and lakhs of freedom fighters. Should I call this thinking madness or treason?" the English translation of his tweet read. "It is an anti-national act and must be called out as such. To not do so would be a betrayal of all those who shed blood so that today we may stand tall and free as a nation," he had added.
