Kangana called herself ‘Netawadi’

Kangana said, “I have always said that I’m Netawadi (Netaji Subhash Chandrawadi, not Gandhiwadi. For this, several people get troubled by the way I speak. Everyone has their own way of thinking and I believe that the struggle of Netaji and several other revolutionaries like Savarkar (Veer Savarkar) ji have been completely denied. Only one side was shown that said ‘slap me on one side of my face, I’ll turn the other one also’ (It was said by Mahatma Gandhi). Only that side was shown that we achieved freedom by doing hunger strike and Dandi march. That’s not the case.”


She further added, “Lakhs of people sacrificed themselves. Netaji campaigned around the world to bring forth the dire situation of India by taking part in World War 2. He also built an army and had active participation thus building pressure on the British. He gave the power to whoever he wanted, he wasn’t hungry for power. He was hungry for freedom and he made the country free.”


Hailing the inauguration of the new Kartavya Path, Kangana said, as quoted by news agency ANI, “This is the path of duty, many generations will lead by example and walk on it. If you keep the name Rajpath, it will not lead by example, but the Kartavya Path is the path of duty, this will serve as guidance to people.”


Talking about her workfront, she is currently doing Sarvesh Mewara’s directorial Tejas where she will essay the role of an Air Force Pilot. She will also direct and feature in Emergency.
