Mumbai: Kangana Ranaut recently attended a Rising India Summit where she voiced her opinions about many relevant topics. Kangana, who is known as Bollywood's boldest actress, also questioned why do people feel ashamed to stand up for the National Anthem.
The two time National Award winning actress said, "The Americans stand for their national anthem. Why do we feel ashamed of standing? If you want to learn something from Americans then learn good things from them."
"I don't mind. But I am going to stand for my national anthem. Whenever there is something for my country, then I am going to side with my country, my soldiers, my army and I am a cool youngster if 21st century," added the 'Tanu Weds Manu' actor.
She also said how she hears the youth in India complaining about the country. Ranaut said at the summit, "I meet people and it has become a cool thing to say bad things about your country...I hear the youths always complaining and whining that 'the country does not have the infrastructure and it is so dirty'... This attitude is not okay. If the country is dirty, then are you the guests? Why don't you clean it?"
About the ban on Pakistani artists in India, Kangana Ranaut said, "Artistic realm is different from the physical realm. When you are talking about physical boundaries and you are talking about borders, why be esoteric. You should know about a place where people are losing lives."
She further added, "At the time of ban on Pakistani artists, the country is vulnerable where people are struggling and trying to cope with emotions. The common sentiment is 'Humko kya Lena dena, hum toh artist hai'. This is not going to work. Above everything, you are Indians as well, and when you are talking about boundaries, you can't go into the esoteric world and say 'I am an artist."
