The controversial Queen of Bollywood Kangana Ranaut has made the headlines yet again. This time around, she took a dig at the Amazon Prime Video series ‘Tandav’. The show which stars talented artists like Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Gauahar Khan, Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub, and many more, has garnered a lot of controversy recently.
In response to a tweet made by Atul Mishra, Kangana wrote, “Because even Lord Krishna forgave 99 mistakes of Sheshupala…. pehle Shanti phir Kranti (Silence must be followed by revolution)…. time to take their heads off… Jai Shri Krishan…” Demanding the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to ask for an explanation from the makers Tandav.
After her tweet, several netizens lambasted Kangana for instigating violence towards the makers of the series. Although Kangana deleted her tweet shortly after, some supporters of the actress defended her saying that her tweet was taken out of context. One such supporter even went on to share a screenshot of the definition of ‘to take one’s head off’ which is an idiom that means ‘to scold/berate someone severely’.
Kangana later retweeted the tweet, saying “Jo libru dar ke maare mummy ki god mein ro rahe hai, woh yeh padh lein. Maine tumhara sir kaatne ke liye nahi kaha, itna toh main bhi jaanti hoon ki insects ya worms ke liye pesticide chahiye hota hai (The liberals who are scared and crying to their mothers should read this. I did not ask to behead you. Even I know that insects and worms need pesticide to be done with).”
