Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut will face legal action for her comments on Mahatma Gandhi, the Maharashtra Congress has said. The state’s party chief Nana Patole said they have decided to lodge an official complaint against Kangana Ranaut with the Mumbai police.
The actress had made it to headlines again for her comment at an interview that the independence achieved by the country in 1947 was “bheekh (alms) and that real freedom came in 2014 (When Narendra Modi came to power).
In a recent post on Instagram, she shared an old news clipping headlined “Gandhi, others had agreed to hand over Netaji” on Instagram and wrote “Either you are a Gandhi fan or Nataji supporter You can’t be both… Choose and decide”.
She claimed there was proof to suggest that Gandhi wanted Bhagat Singh to be hanged.
In a reference to Gandhiji “Those are the ones who taught us, “If someone slaps you offer another cheek for one more slap” and that is how you will get Aazadi. That’s not how one gets Aazadi, one can only get bheekh like that. Choose your heros wisely(sic).”
