Kangana Ranaut on favouring BJP with Emergency around election
When asked about the claims around Emergency, Kangana Ranaut said in Hindi, “If you want to know a person then go for his actions and not his words.” The interviewer chimed in, “But going by your actions, you are making the film. You are the director.” The actor replied, “Then you watch the film. The film will be released but I am not sure if it will be released around elections. It has nothing to do with elections and any political party also. I would also like to say that it is also an ode to our prime minister, who has been elected three times. It is her life story, whatever good and bad she did. Like I said, a woman is representative in her own right. But to already assume that I have favoured a (political party), this is a wrong perception.”
Kangana: PM Modi is holding the torch of humanity
Talking about the film, he also said that while doing research work for the Emergency, he came to know that Indira Gandhi had been ‘bullied’ in the past. He said, “I myself have worked on the biopic of Mrs. Gandhi during the Emergency. How Nixon had treated her, how badly she had spoken in the media and how much she had bullied her (when I researched Indira Gandhi, I learned how Richard Nixon had bullied her). But now, through violence and only love, PM Modi is truly carrying the torch of humanity. We Indians feel very proud.”
