Following her return to Twitter on Tuesday, Kangana Ranaut stated that the film industry is “crass” and “crude,” where an art project’s success is allegedly determined by the amount of money it generates. On Wednesday, when Shah Rukh Khan’s highly awaited movie Pathaan is set to have its official premiere, Kangana commented on it.
Wednesday morning, Kangana posted on Twitter, “Film industry is so crass and crude that whenever they want to project success of any endeavour/creation/art they throw flashing currency digits in your face, as if art has no other purpose.. it exposes their lowly standards and the kind of deprived lives they live.”
She added that cinema is not produced for “major economic gains” like all industries, which is why artists are worshipped. She said, “Primitively art blossomed in temples and reached literature/theatres and eventually inside cinemas. It is an industry but not designed for major economic gains like other billion/trillion dollar businesses; that’s why art/artists are worshipped, not industrialists or billionaires.” She added, “So even if artists indulge in polluting the very fibre of art and culture in the nation, they must do it discreetly, not shamelessly….”
Following a two-year ban for “repeated violations” of Twitter’s hateful conduct and abusive behaviour policy, Kangana’s account was reactivated on Tuesday. She shared demands from numerous Twitter users asking Elon Musk to reactivate her account after he took control of Twitter.
