Kangana Ranaut slams Bollywood celebrities for endorsing fairness products and shamelessly standing up for Black Lives Matter

Last week America saw the death of an African American man named George Floyd. Ever since news broke out that the man died due to police brutality huge protests have emerged. Bollywood celebrities including Kareena Kapoor Khan and Priyanka Chopra have also raised their voices in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Now actress Kangana Ranaut has slammed all Bollywood celebrities who are now raising their voice for Black Lives Matter. Ranaut is angry at their hypocrisy as many of these celebrities endorse fairness creams and products in India.
 
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla Kangana said, 'I think it has become fancy somehow to be a part of something which is relevant to the West. But Asian celebrities and actors are very impactful in this part of the country. I don’t know why they’re participating in the socio-political reform of America and a few weeks ago when two sages were killed openly in by a bloodthirsty mob and were handed over by cops themselves, there was not a word from anyone, because I think that would probably resonate with the majoritarian sentiment.'
 
'The Indian celebrities they’ve been endorsing all kinds of fairness products and today shamelessly they stand and say black lives matter, I mean how dare they? Our industry even shies away from casting darker actors for characters that are supposed to be fair-skinned. Why is no one asking them about these million-dollar deals that they’ve been doing with all kinds of fairness products and how come suddenly all black lives matter because racism is deep-rooted and when you have commercialised such events that is the lowest humanity can hit, ' she added.
