Kangana Ranaut made her debut at the French Riviera this
year. She was a sheer fashionista on the Cannes red carpet wowing fans and paps
with her sheer presence.
Also present at Cannes this year was the Neerja and Padmaavat actor Jim Sarbh.
Kangana Ranaut and Jim Sarbh
A video featuring the two has surfaced online. In it, Jim can be seen cracking a joke on rape, as Kangana stands by him and laughs in approval.
After the video invited flak on Twitter, Jim Sarbh told Hindustan Times that his comments were taken out of context. “It is unfortunate that my comments were taken out of context. I do not now nor have I ever condoned any form of sexual violence. This has been picked out of context without a prelude where I am actually enacting parts of a play which is a dark satire,” said the actor.

Woke queen Kangana seen laughing at a rape joke here along with Jim Sarbh. Kangana had previously called out Salman for an insensitive rape remark.pic.twitter.com/B1lpIqy0Kg
Jim says, “I’d rather be raped by 12 prostitutes than
touch alcohol and the Punjabi says, ‘Me too, I didn’t know that was an option.”
Along with the rest of the audience Kangana too cracks up.
Twitterati is not amused. Twitter users erupted in anger. Read a few infuriated tweets below:

One. He made a hideous joke and included a vital thing called 'Rape'
Two. he included 'prostitute' in that "I would rather be raped by 12 prostitutes..." are you freaking kidding me ? you just stated that they are as equal as Rapists ?
Go get a life man
Dear Jim Sarbh/ Kangana Ranaut— ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (@karishmau) May 15, 2018
Rape jokes are not funny. Rape is NOT a joke. If you tell or laugh at jokes about rape you are a part of the problem. https://t.co/Pk5bSB9zCr
