Mumbai: Kangana Ranaut sent out a strong message against mob lynching by stating that it was wrong and makes her feel heartbroken. In a conversation with Sadhguru, Kangana opened up about cow saviours and mob lynching, that India has been witnessing lately.
“You feel conflicted. You want to save the animals but when the lynching happens, you feel heartbroken at what’s going on. You feel this is wrong,” said Kangana.
The Queen actress also recollected how during the shoot of Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi, there was a lengthy discussion on whether to include a calf saving scene or not.
“I’m working on a martyr’s biopic Manikarnika where there is a scene where my protagonist, Laxmibai, goes and saves a calf. My crew had a discussion, and we halted the shoot. They said ‘we can’t save a calf’ because we don’t want to look like cow savers. When such a prejudice thrives, as a person you feel very protective of who you are and what your values are. You want to save all animals and you definitely want to save the cows because the prejudice is really agonising. But when lynching takes place for cows, you look like an idiot,” said Kangana.
