Decision To Join Politics Won’t Be Mine: Kangana Ranaut

New Delhi: She has often stoked a row with her no-holds-barred opinions also raising speculations that she could take the political plunge soon, but actress Kangana Ranaut has a different view.

“I’m a nationalist and speak a lot for the country. That’s why people believe that I’m interested in politics. These are two different things. I’m not a politician but a responsible citizen and people have brought me to this stage as they know that I will speak on their behalf,” said Kangana as quoted by PTI, at a press meet here for her latest film Thalaivii, a biopic on former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa which hits screens today.

When quizzed whether joning politics is a foregone conclusion, Kangana quipped, “Whether I should get into politics or not, this decision will not be mine. Without the support of the people, a person cannot even win a panchayat election. If I have to get into politics, then it is important that people are supportive of me, elect me or they see that I have the calibre of a politician. But right now I feel that I’m good as an actor.”

Kankana never to mince words, has seldom been cagey on her strong pro-Hindutva views which has drawn flak from her critics. Her unflinching loyalty towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi has frequently been reflected through her candid statements. In fact, during the press meet, she endorsed Modi’s advocacy of Atmanirbhar Bharat by vehemently protesting the release of Hollywood films in India. “We need to discourage American and English movies as they are taking over our screens. Keeping our people and our industry a priority is important to make an Atmanirbhar Bharat,” she added.

Now it remains to be seen when she finally takes a call on her political entry.
