Vir Das Monologue Controversy: Kangana Ranaut Demands Strict Action Against Him, Says ‘Targeting Entire Race Is Soft Terrorism’; Comedian Issues Clarification
Ace comedian Vir Das has been receiving severe backlash after his monologue titled ‘I come from two Indias’ went viral on social media. In his 6-minute-long monologue, the comedian highlighted topical issues of the nation like the battle against Covid-19, incidents of rapes, farmer’s protests, and others. Clips from Vir Das’ monologue, particularly, the part where he said that "he comes from India where we worship women during the day and gang-rape them during the night” raised many eyebrows. A section of netizens objected to the line and trolled him for the same.

While Vir is being slammed by many, now Kangana Ranaut has expressed her disappointment with Vir’s monologue. The actress has demanded strict action against him. Taking to her Instagram stories, Kangana slammed the video and wrote, “When you generalise all Indian men as gang-rapists it gives rise and encouragement to racism and bullying against Indians all over the world...after Bengal Famine Churchill famously said, ‘These Indians breed like rabbits they are bound to die like this...’ he blamed Indians’ sex drive/fertility for the death of millions because of hunger... Such creative work targeting an entire race is soft terrorism... strict actions must be taken against such criminals @virdas.”


Following the backlash, Vir Das has issued a clarification on the same in a Twitter post. He wrote, “The video is a satire about the duality of two very separate Indias that do different things. Like any nation has light and dark, good and evil within it. None of this is a secret. The video appeals for us to never forget that we are great. To never stop focusing on what makes us great.”

Earlier, the comedian had shared a video on YouTube that was a part of his recent performance at the John F Kennedy Centre in Washington DC.  Also Read: ‘Kangana Ranaut Should Have Been More Vigilant’ Says Bombay High Court; Refuses Urgent Hearing Of Actress’ Plea For Passport Renewal
