New Delhi: Actress Kangana Ranaut, who is known for her controversial tweets, got involved in a war of words with filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who made a remark against the actress and asked her to go and fight with China at LAC and even called her ‘eklauti Manikarnika.’
Kangana responding to Anurag’s statement questioned what happened to his wit and said that he used to be intelligent when they were friends.
Kangana in her tweet wrote, “I am a warrior, I can cut my head, but I cannot bow my head! I will always raise my voice for the honor of the nation. I live with honor, respect, self-respect, and will live proudly as a nationalist! I have never compromised with my principles and I will never do it! Jai Hind.”
Reacting to Kangana’s tweet, Anurag had written in hindi, “There is only you- the only true Manikarnika. You take four to five people and fight China. See how far they have entered out territory. Show them also that as long as you are there, no one can touch this country. LAC is just one day’s journey from your house. Go Tigress. Jai Hind.”
Kangana responded to Anurag with a sarcastic tweet and wrote, “Ok I will go to the border, you go to the next Olympics, the country wants gold models..hahaha..it is not a B grade film where the artist becomes anything, you have started taking metaphor literally, how have you become so stupid?, you were very clever when we were friends”
The Twitter war between Kangana and Anurag continued and the filmmaker reacting to her tweet wrote, “Your life has become a metaphor now. Everything is a metaphor. Every allegation is a metaphor. You have given so many metaphors on Twitter that the public has started calling the unemployed generator as your dialogue writer. Nobody knows better than you how to improvise.”
Reacting to his tweet, Kangana tweeted, “Oh!! I see you having an embarrassing meltdown here, hardly making any sense, anyway don’t want to make it worse, I step back, don’t feel bad friend please have hot haldi milk and go to sleep, tomorrow is a new day.”
Further, Kangana clarifying herself tweeted, “I may come across as a very ladaku person but it’s not true, I have a record of never starting a fight, I will quit twitter if anyone can prove otherwise, I never start a fight but I finish every fight. Lord Krishna said when someone aks you to fight you mustn’t deny them.”
