Kangana on Hindi Diwas: Film world made fun of my English
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut says the film world has always made fun of her English, despite which she has always kept Hindi as her priority.
Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel took to Twitter on the occasion of Hindi Diwas on Friday, sharing a clip of the actress. In the video, Kangana is seen urging everyone to give importance to Hindi.
She said in Hindi: “Today on Hindi Diwas, lets take ‘Panga’ with English but with love. Hindi is our national language but the nation worries speaking it… ‘A,B,C’ comes out with confidence but ‘ka, kha, ga’ doesn’t come out with that much confidence… Parents also say with full pride that their children speak amazing English…” Kangana is heard saying in the video.
“If you are weak in English, then you feel ashamed but if your Hindi is weak then there is not even a line of worry on the forehead… Bhasha becomes the password of social circle and sometimes the certificate of our talent.
“The film world has always made fun of my English…and critcised it. But still I’ve kept Hindi language as my priority for which I could expand my reach and achieve major success,” she said.
The 32-year-old actress, who currently awaits the release of her next film “Panga”,
urged all mothers to teach their children Hindi.
“I urge all mothers the way they treat their children with ‘desi ghee laddoo’ with love… the same way they should teach them Hindi because the taste you get in ‘desi ghee paranthas’ you don’t get that taste in pizzas and burgers. And the love is in the word ‘ma’, it’s not the same in the word ‘mom’,” she said.
Kangana on JNU violence: Don’t make it a national issue
Actress Kangana Ranaut has finally opened about the campus violence at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi, saying the incident should not be turned into a national or political issue.
“The attack on students in JNU is currently being investigated. It’s understood that there are two sides, namely JNU and ABVP, two different unions, in the university,” said Kangana, while speaking to the media on the sidelines of the promotion of her upcoming film, “Panga”, according to a hindustantimes.com report.
Kangana recalled a gang war she had witnessed during her college days in Chandigarh.
“Gang war is quite common during college life. I used to stay at a girls’ hostel alongside a boys’ hostel, where people were followed and murdered in broad daylight. A boy once jumped into our hostel and was about to get killed by a mob, but our hostel manager saved him,” she said.
The actress aded that the police should take the perpetrators into custody.
“I would like to say that these gang wars are managed by powerful and dangerous people, which leaves both the sides hurt. Such things should not be made into a national issue.
“Police should take perpetrators into custody and give them four slaps each. Such people are found everywhere in every street and college, and they should not be made national issue because they don’t deserve it,” she added.
