Looks like, Kangana Ranaut is in no mood to spare anybody from Bollywood. After calling out Alia Bhatt and Aamir Khan for not standing in support of her during Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, now the actress has called veteran actress Shabana Azmi ‘anti-national’.
While the whole nation is mourning over the loss of 44 CRPF jawans in Pulawama terror attack, on February 14, Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar had cancelled a two-day literary event on her father Kaifi Azmi in Karachi, Pakistan. This came as a sign of protest against the cowardly act by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM).
It seems like their move hasn’t gone down too well with the Queen actress as she called Azmi an ‘anti-national’ for organizing cultural events in Pakistan. Kangana said, “People like Shabana Azmi calling for halt on cultural exchange -- they are the ones who promote Bharat Tere Tukde Honge gangs... why did they organise an event in Karachi in the first place when Pakistani artistes have been banned after Uri attacks? And now they are trying to save face? The film industry is full of such anti-nationals who boost enemies' morals in many ways, but right now is the time to focus on decisive actions... Pakistan ban is not the focus, Pakistan destruction is."
When In.com got in touch with Shabana Azmi for her reaction on Kangana Ranaut’s statement against her, she said, “You really think at a time like this a personal attack on me can be of any significance when the entire country stands as one in our grief and in condemning this dastardly Pulwama attack ? May God bless her.”
Meanwhile, Kangana too has cancelled the success bash of 'Manikarnika' in solidarity with the jawans, who lost their lives in Pulwama’s heinous terror attack. She had said, "Pakistan has not only violated our nation’s security they have also attacked our dignity by openly threatening and humiliating us. We need to take decisive actions or else our silence will be misunderstood for our cowardice... Bharat is bleeding today, the killing of our sons is like a dagger in our gut; anyone who lectures about non-violence and peace at this time should be painted black, put on a donkey and slapped by everyone on the streets."
