Kangana Ranaut fears the day when she’ll stop making headlines: Shabana Azmi

Kangana Ranaut has been quite active on Twitter and often grabs headlines with her posts. While a few support her, others condemn her outbursts. Now, veteran actress Shabana Azmi has spoken about Kangana in a recent interaction. Azmi said, “Kangana has started believing in her own myth. She says she taught feminism to the film industry and she taught it nationalism. I’m glad she spelled that out because nobody else had noticed! I think she fears the day when she will no longer be in the headlines and so has to keep making outrageous statements to stay in the news.”

Shabana also reacted to the film industry being targeted; she added, “My primary identity is that of being a Hindi film industry actor and I am very proud of it. Unfortunately, the Hindi film industry is a sitting duck; it is easy to hurl malevolent accusations at it. It is a systematic campaign to divert attention from real issues, failing economy, China border tensions, spiralling Covid cases, and farmers’ agitation by putting the spotlight on the supposed ills of the film industry… The Hindi film industry is not a monolith, neither is it composed only of actors. How can you paint the whole lot with one brush?”
