If a woman is successful, she’s called a witch, if sexually active, she’s called a whore: Kangana Ranaut

Must read: Kangana’s response to ex Adhyayan Suman’s allegations!

Bang!!!! There comes a response which needs a read! In an interview with Barkha Dutt for NDTV, Kangana Ranaut spoke out against the allegations made by her ex-boyfriend Adhyayan Suman. Kangana is embroiled in a legal battle with Hrithik Roshan for speaking out about their ‘affair’. She gave quite a strong answer to the allegations!

Read on her response!

 

“As far as name-calling is concerned, we as women have been defending ourselves for way too long. These are thousand-year weapons that are still used against women. When they’re jealous of a woman’s success, the first thing she becomes is a daayan [witch]. If she’s crazily successful, she becomes a psychopath. If she’s sexually active, she becomes a whore. All of this is being used, and it’s really outdated. It doesn’t upset me, because I’m an artist and I’ve closely researched people who’ve dealt with mental illnesses, and I don’t find anything upsetting, gross, or degrading about fighting with a mental illness, which a certain portion of the media is trying to suggest – to humiliate a woman, you can use mental illness. It won’t work. I have played a schizophrenic, I’ve played a bipolar patient on screen… and I don’t see anything humiliating when they call me a psychopath, a bitch, or a whore. I’ve also played a whore on screen, and my close interaction with prostitutes has allowed me to be extremely empathetic to them. So it doesn’t work on me. Witches – I love Shakespeare, and like any other artist, I’m also smitten by witches, or faeries, or demons, or Gods, or mysticism, or romanticism. It doesn’t scare me. How would any of us hope to write a Harry Potter or be a Shakespeare if we instill so much fear and xenophobia in our children’s heads? We need to be a bit more open about anybody’s religious practices.”

 

Perfect!!!
