Kangana Ranaut is on a roll these days, thanks to her brazen, unabashed, and controversial statements in her recent interviews and bashing her co-stars namely Hrithik Roshan and Aditya Pancholi.
Kangana has, in fact, become an epitome of feminism in Bollywood.
"I am not a man-hater. In fact, I have more male friends than female ones. I am not sure when I became a feminist. The whole perception of inequality and of one being inferior to the other is too bizarre for me to come to terms with. I can't understand it. Feminism is just indicative that the balance between genders is missing from the system, and it's a sorry state to be in," said Kangana while attending the Jagran Cinema Summit.
She further said, "My journey [in the industry] is magical, but magic has its price. Lineage has been restricted within the males of the industry. There is a deep-rooted patriarchy. Showbiz is a fantasy land. It swings between extraordinary, fantastic and tragic."
Elaborating her point, she said, "Certain things are expected of men, but sneered upon when women do it. Consider their sexual lives for instance. Having sex is fun for a man, but for a woman, it's almost criminal. Such is the general perception of the glamour world. Men brag about their Casanova sons, but when it comes to their daughters, she can't be wearing a bikini. [It is okay if] 15 bikini-clad women are hovering around him and his son, but the daughter has to comply with feudal ideas."
