Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli met the Governor and after the meeting she met the Press and told them what transpired in the conversation. It was a simple and a short narration but the narrative that followed was different. While she was speaking to the media she held two water lilies, purple in colour and out came the news that she was hinting at joining the BJP. She might have seen a few of the flowers in a pond at the Governor’s home and must have picked it up but when she walked out to meet the media, the act kicked up a storm. Time and again, she had briefed people that she isn’t interested in politics, she was offered an invitation to join BJP twice but rejected it. Though she makes it obvious that she has leanings towards the Saffron party, she has categorically denied getting actively involved. A few days back, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh reportedly said that the actress has “no right to stay” in Mumbai. The comment had not gone down well with Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut either, who had called her ‘haraamkhor’.
After his comment, Sanjay Raut was called out for calling a woman ‘haraamkhor’, not only by Kangana but also other celebrities. His latest editorial in ‘Saamana’ also took a dig on the same. “Like Draupadi’s ‘cheerharan’ (disrobing) by the ‘Kauravas’ while the ‘Pandavas’ kept their heads down, even now we are witnessing a similar scenario,” read an excerpt from the piece. Kangana had even addressed CM Uddhav Thackeray as ‘Tu’ in a video where she sarcastically condemned the demolition of her house. A few people who thought the addressing was ‘disrespectful’, filed a complaint against the actor.
