It is pretty evident by now that Kangana Ranaut is one actress who doesn't shy away from speaking about what's on her mind. The actress is known for raging wars against stereotypes, be it just playing the love interest of a hero or the wage gap between the male and female actors. Kangana does not mince her words.
Recently, Kangana spoke to a leading tabloid about the gender bias in the Bollywood film industry. The actress stated, "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."
"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," she continued. "This talk starts only because 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."
"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," the actress stated. "Women, too, are sometimes more chauvinistic than men, perpetuating the 'men are better' complex," she concluded.
So, do you think Kangana is right about this one? Stay tuned for more updates.
