Kangana Ranaut has been making too many headlines of late with her bold opinions and statements. After speaking on topics like nepotism, B-town’s four Khans and many more… the latest coming from the actress’ end is her strong advocacy against gender bias in Bollywood. Call it the age gap between a male actor and a female actor or for the actress to always play just the love interest, Kangana spoke strongly against stereotypes in the industry.
Commenting on the same, Kangana earlier told a leading tabloid, “By and large, the system is not comfortable with an actress being intelligent. Too bad if she is smarter than the male lead. And worse, if she is smarter than the director.”
When asked what makes Kangana go solo in her films, she revealed, “I have no choice but to go solo at this point. I face prejudice and people joke about how I am the bully. I swing between being a bi**h and Buddha. Have you heard that I am a witch apparently?”
Kangana also said, “They want actresses to be dumb and pretty. I can’t act dumb. I can’t sit on a set pampering the male ego, just because it’s the easier way to get your way around men.” She further added, “To expect men to stand up for feminism is silly. They are used to being a priority in every field. It was a life of comfort for them — women were looking after their homes, giving them sex. Suddenly, women are coming out of this chauvinistic spell and asking relevant questions. That is bothering the men, Women, too, are sometimes more chauvinistic than men, perpetuating the 'men are better' complex.”
Meanwhile, Kangana’s next Simran is all set to hit the theatres on September 15. The film is directed by Hansal Mehta and portrays Kangana as a kleptomaniac.
