“It was very difficult and harsh times. I was physically abused. I don’t have to go to details” said Kangana Ranaut during Barkha Dutt’s book launch.
At the launch of journalist Barkha Dutt’s book, ‘The Unquiet Land’ yesterday, Kangana Ranaut was seen talking about feminism and the time when she was physically abused, stalked and hit by someone from the industry who acted as her mentor and godfather. She spoke her heart out on many topics that were close to her.
“It was very difficult and harsh times. I was physically abused. I dont have to go to details” said kangana Ranaut.
Kangana unveils “This man who was my father’s age hit me hard on my head when I was 17. I started bleeding. I took out my sandal and hit him hard and he started too bleed too. I lodged an FIR against that man”
When Barkha asked her whether cops took any action She said ” He wasn’t punished He was warned and told to stop stalking me. I had never really tested myself in such extreme situations.”
She spoke about Feminism and what it takes to be an independent woman in today’s time. In addition to that, she gave her opinion on male dominant Bollywood, where actors never age but actresses do. “Overtly ambitious women are looked down upon. They will make you feel that way. Men make us lose our identity. It is a trap. When a man says you are not 16 don’t hate it. We need to love ourselves. When I played a real woman, people loved it. Whether my character in Queen is 27 or 37, no one would have bothered but film industry doesn’t want to feel that way”
When asked for being called a bitch on many occasions she said: “Bitch for me is a baby in total control of herself”. Kangana has always tried to be on the top by her own without any help from mentors or sugar daddies. We must say she is one feisty and courageous woman in Bollywood currently.
