Exclusive Interview Video: Kangana’s First Tell All
UPDATE: Adhyayan & Shekhar Suman speaks to India Today post Kangana’s interview
While Hrithik and Adhyayan have made strong statements against the Queen actor, Kangana has finally broken her silence on the entire episode. The 29-year-old actor has revealed that she is shocked how her personal life has become a circus.
The recent turn of events in my life has shocked me. It has been overwhelming and unsettling for me also. I was probably prepared for everything.
But I wasn’t prepared for this. This has brought about a different side of our society. It is very hard to come to terms with this kind of suppression, this sort of name-calling, this kind of witch-hunt mentality in the 21st century.
Kangana, who was in a relationship with Adhyayan in 2009, says that people do speak ill of others out of envy. But it is hard for her to believe that the most private parts of her life are being discussed in such a negative manner. According to Adhyayan, he and Kangana got close during the shooting of a song from Raaz 2 in 2008 and eventually started seeing each other. The next one year was allegedly filled with mental and physical torture inflicted on him by Kangana. He even accused her of ruining his Bollywood career.
“Many people are insecure of many people. There is envy but you don’t subject this kind of brutality on anybody. It shows a different side of the society. The way we are discussing the most delicate matters, in a very brutal, negative and sadistic fashion, is disturbing. Attempts are being made to destroy me. Whether they are working or not is another matter,” she added.
In fact, Adhyayan in his interview called Kangana a psychopath and even said that the actor indulged in black magic. But Kangana says that name-calling doesn’t affect her much.
“I do not want to detach myself from these names. Because for way too long, we women are refusing to accept ourselves. Imagine in the medieval ages, there was no evidence of how the history of mankind has been affected by witchcraft. But there is significant factual history of how brutality and sadism of mankind have been displayed in the most obscene manner in the name of witch-hunt.
Even in this new age, when we have to project our frustrations on a woman, the first thing we call her is daayan, chudail or wh**e or psychopath. The mentality is the same. If I can’t get you, I might just destroy you,” the actor said.
She added, “I am a very proud Hindu. The foundation of my personality is laid on the teachings of Swami Vivekananda or Sanatan Dharm or the Gita. And if my religious practices or anybody’s religious practices are given any kind of sadistic name, it instills fear about other person’s religious practices.
People of our country are discussing about my periods and calling it gross. There is nothing gross about it. If your agenda is to shame me, it’s not happening.” Kangana went on to say that there was nothing wrong or nothing to be ashamed of in witchcraft. She believes that each person’s belief and religion belongs to them.
“Witchcraft is an ancient art, everyone should know about it. What is wrong with witchcraft? Don’t we like Harry Potter? I would want my daughter to know about witchcraft,” she said, adding that terms like witch, wh**e etc are being used as weapons to destroy women and we need to find our strength against that.
Kangana, who was last seen in Tanu Weds Manu Returns, says that no matter how ugly the legal battle gets, she is not ready to bow down to pressure. “At this point, I can’t pretend to be sorry about something that I am not,” she signed off.
In Kangana’s defense I would say,Rahul Kanwal is known for misleading titles.She didnt say I am not ashamed but said why there is so much shame in associating in it. Though uska meaning sayad wohi tha per phir bhi exact quote nahin hai.
