Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has arrived at Andaman island for the shoot of her upcoming film, Tejas. She visited Cellular Jail in Port Blair, Andaman, and the Nicobar Islands, where Hindu Mahasabha leader Vinayak Damodar Savarkar was imprisoned.
Taking Instagram, Kangana shared a series of pictures of her visit and captioned the long note. She wrote, “Today on arriving in Andaman island I visited Veer Savarkar’s Cell at Kala Pani, Cellular Jail, Port Blair…I was shaken to the core … when inhumanity was at its peak, even humanity rose to its peak in the form of Savarkar Ji and looked it in the eye, faced every cruelty with resistance and determination…”
She further added,” ‘Veer Savarkar ji’ and said, “How scared they must have been of him not only they kept him in Kala Paani in those days it must be impossible to escape from this tiny island in the middle of the sea. Yet, they put chains on him, built a thick-walled jail, and locked him up in a tiny hole, imagine the fear as if he can fly on thin air across the never-ending sea, what cowards… !!”
She concluded her post with respect and gratitude to ‘Veer Savarkar ji’ and wrote, “This cell is the truth of Aazadi not what they teach us in our textbooks…. I meditated in the cell paid my gratitude and deepest respect to Veer Savarkar ji…स्वतंत्रता संग्राम के इस सच्चे नायक को मेरा कोटि कोटि नमन. जय हिंद.”
On Monday, Kangana received her fourth National Film Award as the Best Actress for her performances in ‘Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi’ and ‘Panga.’
