Kangana Ranaut defends her ‘Bheek’ remark

Kangana Ranaut stirred up a hornet’s nest when she said ‘India’s freedom in 1947 was a bheek.’ The actress was speaking at a media summit when she gave the controversial statement saying that “India got true freedom only in 2014”. Now, defending her statement Kangana took to her Instagram and shared an old newspaper article with a headline that read, “Gandhi, others agreed to hand over Netaji.” She captioned the post as “Either you are a Gandhi fan or Netaji supporter. You can’t be both, choose and decide.”

In her IG Stories, Kangana stood by statement and said, “Those who fought for the freedom were “handed over” to their masters…by those who had no courage burning /boiling hot blood to fight their oppressor but they were power hungry and cunning…Those are the ones who taught us, if someone slaps you offer another cheek for one more slap and that is how you will get aazaadi. That’s not how one gets aazadi, one can only get bheekh like that. Choose your heroes wisely.”

The actress stated that Gandhi ‘never supported’ Bhagat Singh or Subhas Chandra Bose. “So you need to choose who you support because just placing them all in one box of your memory and every year wishing them all on their birth anniversaries is not enough. In fact, it is not just dumb, it is highly irresponsible and superficial. One must know their history and their heroes.” Vishal Dadlani reacts to Kangana Ranaut’s freedom remark: Remind the lady who said Independence was ‘bheekh’

Recently, veteran actor Vikram Gokhale came out in support of Kangana Ranaut’s controversial statement. He said, “I agree with what Kangana Ranaut has said. We got freedom in alms. It was given. Many freedom fighters were hanged and the big-wigs at that time didn’t attempt to save them. They remained mere mute spectators.”
