The protest against the murder of George Floyd, a black man living in America, has shaken the whole world. The shameful case of racist killing has attracted outrage from all over the world. Apart from Hollywood, even the Bollywood industry is openly protesting against the same. To this, Kangana Ranaut reacted and said to a leading website that it's a shame that Bollywood didn't stand up for the Sadhu who was lynched in Maharashtra.
She said, “The Sadhu lynching happened a couple of weeks ago; still no one said a word. It happened in Maharashtra where most of these celebrities reside…Bollywood anyway is a derived name from Hollywood. It is a shame they [Bollywood celebrities] continue to live in a bubble and never fail to jump on the bandwagon, which can give them two minutes of fame, but ‘white people’ must drive the bandwagon. Perhaps, it is because of their pre-independence colonial slavery genes.”
She questioned the norm of selective outrage and called them a slave of the western world.“Even for environmental issues, you see them fight for a white teenage kid but so many incredible elderly women and even children. They are doing exceptionally well in India on environmental matters without any help or support. Some of them were honored with the Padma Shri award. I was amazed to see their stories, but they never get the same acknowledgment from the industry. Perhaps, sadhus or tribal people aren’t fancy enough for the Bollywood crowd or their followers, " she added.
