Actor Kangana Ranaut has delivered a bold response to Shiv Sena politician Sanjay Raut. Sanjay had called her ‘Haramkhor’ for allegedly ‘disrespecting’ Maharashtra’. Kangana clarified that she has utmost respect for the state but has lost faith in Mumbai Police after the Palghar Mob Lynching incident and Sushant Singh Rajput death case. She also told that anyone can look up to her old interviews where she wouldn’t get tired praising Mumbai Police, but the recent events have changed her perception.
In her video, Kangana said that by abusing her, Sanjay has empowered wife beaters, sexual harassers and misogynists with his words. She said, “Sanjay Raut ji, you said that I am a haramkhor girl. You are an elected representative and so you must know how many women each day, each hour are faced with rape, abuse, are tortured and killed and are harassed at work. And you know who is responsible for it? It’s this ideology that you have displayed in front of the society and the country. The daughters of this country will not forgive you. You have empowered all those who harass women.”
She also pointed out that nobody called Aamir Khan ‘Haramkhor’ when he said that his wife doesn’t feel safe in India. Kangana also revealed that the Shiv Sena leader threatened her and asked her not to return to Mumbai. Kangana had compared Mumbai to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and said that she fears for her life with Mumbai Police in charge.
Sanjay Raut had previously said, “We kindly request her not to come to Mumbai. This is nothing but an insult to Mumbai Police. The Home Ministry should take action over it”.
Replying to this, Kangana said that she will be coming to Mumbai on 9th September.
