Kangana was slammed by many people from Bollywood just as political leaders for her comment. Police complaints have additionally been registered against her.
The Padma Shri awardee, during the recently held Times Now Summit, had said, “…blood will flow. But it should not be Hindustani blood. They knew it and they paid a price. Of course, it was not freedom but bheekh (alms) and we attained real freedom in 2014.”
Actor Swara Bhasker, sharing a video clip on Twitter had said, “Who are the idiots who are clapping is what I want to know.” Director Onir also asked, “Will we now start celebrating a new Independence Day?”
