Kangana Ranaut slams Saif Ali Khan for ‘No concept of India before the British’ comment; asks, “What was Mahabharat?”
Kangana Ranaut is one of the fieriest actresses in Bollywood. She does not refrain from speaking her mind on any social or political issue. Recently, the ‘Queen‘ actress seemed to have lost her cool over Saif Ali Khan‘s ‘There was no concept of India before the British’ comment. She slammed her ‘Rangoon’ co-star and shared her views on his comment.
In a recent interview with Anupama Chopra, Saif spoke about how History was misrepresented in his film ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ and he even agreed that he didn’t stand up for it. The actor said that he agreed to do the film because the role was so ‘delicious’ that he could not resist it. He also added that ‘there was no concept of India before the British’. This comment had the internet in a frenzy and the actor received a lot of backlash over it.
In an interview with Zee News, Kangana was asked about her opinion on Saif’s recent comment. Sharing her views, the actress said, “If there was no Bharat then what was Mahabharat? Some people have just created these narratives that suit them. Sri Krishna was in Mahabharat. So there was a Bharat, that’s why it was mahaan (great). All the kings of India came together to fight that war. You see even Europe has these small nations. But these had a collective identity, that’s why Sri Krishna went to all these places with Pandavas and the Kauravas, to ask them who will be a part of the war.“

Kangana Ranaut debunks Saif's No India before British, asks "if No bharat, Then what was Mahabharata"? During 'Panga' promotions Kangana put her point of view over Saif Ali Khan’s 'No concept of India before British came in' statement. In an interview, during film panga promotions Kangana stated, ‘If there was no 'Bharat' then what was 'Mahabharat'' What did Ved Vyasa write then’. Kangana continued, "A few people have made their narratives that suit them but Lord Krishna was in Mahabharat, and that means Bharat was there at that time too. All the great kings of 'Bharat' fought the battle then. There was a collective identity even then called 'Bharat'." She further continues, "Now they say, that the territories should be different and should be split. But the division in three that happened then, people are still suffering from that.’ Video Courtesy: @zeenews #KanganaRanaut #SaifAliKhan
Kangana also had a very strong opinion about Deepika Padukone‘s JNU visit. The ‘Panga’ actress had said that she will never stand with the ‘Tukde Tukde’ gang and whatever Deepika did, it was her personal choice.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Kangana will be seen in ‘Panga’ that also stars Jassie Gill, Neena Gupta and Richa Chadha. The movie will hit the silver screens on 24 January.
