Music composer Vishal Dadlani has reacted to Kangana Ranaut’s controversial remark on India’s independence. He shared a photo of himself wearing a t-shirt with Bhagat Singh’s picture on it along with the word, “zindabad”.
He wrote in the caption, “Remind the lady who said our Independence was “bheekh”. The man on my t-shirt is Shaheed Sardar Bhagat Singh, atheist, poet philosopher, Freedom Fighter, son of India, and son of a Farmer. He gave his life for our freedom, for India’s Independence at age 23, and went to the gallows with a smile and a song on his lips. Remind her of him, of Sukhdev, of Rajguru, of Ashfaqullah, and all the many thousands of others who refused to bow, refused to beg. Remind her politely, but strongly, so she never again dares to forget.”
Kangana Ranaut had said that India attained freedom in 2014 when the Narendra Modi-led government came to power and described the country’s Independence in 1947 as “bheekh”.
