Music composer Vishal Dadlani has reacted to Kangana Ranaut’s controversial remarks on India’s Independence. He took to his Instagram today to share a picture of him in a black t-shirt with Bhagat Singh’s picture along with the word “zindabad” printed on it.
While sharing the picture Vishal wrote, “Remind the lady who said our Independence was “bheekh”.” He further added, “The man on my t-shirt is Shaheed Sardar Bhagat Singh, atheist, poet philosopher, Freedom Fighter, son of India, and son of a Farmer. He gave his life for our freedom, for India’s Independence at age 23, and went to the gallows with a smile and a song on his lips. Remind her of him, of Sukhdev, of Rajguru, of Ashfaqullah, and all the many thousands of others who refused to bow, refused to beg. Remind her politely, but strongly, so she never again dares to forget.”
Earlier in an interview, Kangana Ranaut said that India’s Independence in 1947 was ‘Bheek’ or alms, and the nation got its true Independence in 2014, hinting towards the BJP-led government. In the light of the matter, the actress then posted on her Instagram stories offering to return her Padma Shri and apologize if proven that she has disrespected freedom fighters.
