Kangana Ranaut is said to be one of the most straight forward actresses we have in Bollywood. She is the perfect example of a brave woman. From talking about pay disparity to nepotism, Kangana has never been hesitant to speak her heart out. On International Women's Day, Kangana surely deserves a tribute. So today, let’s look at some of the statements by the Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi actress that were all about women power and proved that ‘khoob ladi mardaani, woh toh Bollywood ki Rani thi…’
A strong answer to Karni Sena: I will destroy each one of them
The first one in our list has to be her statement for the Karni Sena. When Manikarnika was all set to hit the screens, the Karni Sena wanted to stop the release of the film as they felt that the movie disrespects the great warrior. Kangana’s reply to them was, “Four historians have certified Manikarnika, we have got censor certificate as well, Karni Sena has been conveyed this but they are continuing to harass me. If they don't stop then they should know I am also a Rajput and I will destroy each one of them."
Kangana was 16 years old when she filed her first FIR against sexual assault
Kangana, while talking about empowering women, gave an example about herself. She stated that she was 16 years old when she filed her first FIR against sexual assault. The actress said, “People who need support, who need to be empowered, we must empower but agar Rani Laxmi Bai jaise ladkiyan humari society humein de sakti hai toh why not, unko discourage nahi karna chahiye. If they are strong women, we should not discourage women. I was 16-years-old when I filed my first FIR against sexual assault so there are people who can stand up for themselves, they shouldn’t be discouraged.”
She wanted to go on the border and kill terrorists
The Pulwama attack shook the whole nation and many Bollywood celebs showcased their displeasure against it on social media. Kangana felt like going to the border and killing the terrorists. She said, "I don't think every statement of mine has to be politically correct. I felt to go to the border, snatch someone's gun and do the deed. That was my instinct."
Kareena inspires Kangana
We hardly see that A-list actress praises another actress, but Kangana is different here. Recently, she went to praise Kareena and called her the epitome of a perfect woman. Kangana said, “Kareena is absolutely lovely. I think she is one of those graceful, dignified people. I always see her and feel that if you have to be an actress, wife or mother, it should be like her. She is the epitome of a perfect woman. She always encourages me and sends me positive messages. She is a very inspiring woman”.
Safety doesn’t mean to learn karate or taekwondo
While we always say that women need to learn self-defence Kangana’s take on safety is something else. The actress said, “I think somewhere we should tell the girls that there are a few rules. Don’t say ‘maybe,’ when you want to say ‘no’, it’s important. Your safety doesn’t mean you can do taekwondo and karate. It also means you go to someone who can save you; it may be a teacher, an uncle you trust, a friend, or the Mumbai Police, or go to the media, find a journalist and expose them.”
