Kangana Ranaut, who is also directing Anupam Kher in their upcoming political drama Emergency, is a close friend of his. Kher recently opened up about his relationship with Kangana and defended her right to tweet about whatever she wants.
Not long ago, Ranaut, who is very active on social media, tweeted that India is ‘obsessed with Khans and Muslim actresses.’ Her tweet said, “This country has only and only loved all Khans and at times only and only Khans…And obsessed over Muslim actresses, so it’s very unfair to accuse India of hate and fascism … there is no country like Bharat in the whole world.”
Anupam Kher stated that while art has its place in such discussions, Kangana has the right to free speech as well.
“Like everybody has freedom of speech, why shouldn’t we give her the freedom of speech? I think Kangana is a brave girl. If we applaud woman empowerment, we should defiantly celebrate the success of Kangana,” Kher signed off.
