In a recent interview, Kangana Ranaut discussed her mother, a former Sanskrit teacher at a government school, and stated that she is not rich due to her daughter’s wealth. She was responding to a tweet from a woman who had posted a photo of her mother working on a farm and praised her “simplicity.”
On Monday, Kangana responded to the Twitter user, “Please note my mother is not rich because of me. I come from a family of politicians, bureaucrats and businessmen. Mom has been a teacher for more than 25 years, and the film mafia must understand where my attitude comes from and why I can’t do cheap stuff and dance in weddings like them.”
Kangana tweeted a photo of her mother at work on the farm on Sunday, saying she spends 7-8 hours daily in the field. My mother dislikes going out to eat, travelling, visiting movie sets, and living in Bombay, which she had also mentioned on her Instagram Stories. She claimed that her mother scolds them whenever they attempt to force her into doing any of these things.
Upon sharing the photo on her Instagram Stories, she wrote, “Bhikhari movie mafia who dance in weddings and do item songs for few coins will never know real character/ integrity is beyond material wealth… that’s why I never respected them I will never respect them….”
Kangana added on Monday to her Instagram Stories, “Film mafia always called my attitude my arrogance, my mother has taught me to survive in two roti and salt, but never beg anyone she taught me to say no to anything that doesn’t go with my value system/dharma. Tell me, is this arrogance or integrity? They called me names and declared me mad because I don’t giggle and gossip like other girls or danced at weddings, or went to heroes’ rooms!! Is this why someone should be targeted, harassed or isolated?”
Kangana added, “Even now, I put every penny into making a film. I have nothing today. When I see my mother working in the fields, I feel I have everything. Kya bigadoge tum mera main yahan aayi hoon rakshshon ka safaya karne Mujhe apne liye kuch bhi nahi chahiye… haha, you can’t blame me. Don’t be shocked when heads roll …. That’s precisely why I am here.”
