From the past two years mob lynching incidents by cow vigilantes has been the most spoken about topic in India. Kangana Ranaut in her interaction with Sadhguru on Wednesday evening, shared her opinion on the increased number of lynchings with the Sadhguru.
“You feel conflicted. You want to save the animals but when the lynching happens, you feel heartbroken at what’s going on. You feel this is wrong," she said.
During the interaction, the actor also revealed that while shooting for her upcoming film Manikarnika, the crew was in double thoughts about a scene wherein her character Rani Laxmibai had to save a calf.
"I’m working on a martyr’s biopic Manikarnika where there is a scene where my protagonist, Laxmibai, goes and saves a calf. My crew had a discussion, we halted the shoot. They said ‘we can’t save a calf’ because we don’t want to look like cow savers," she said.
The actor also added that there is a prejudice against people, who are passionate about cow protection.
"When such a prejudice thrives, as a person you feel very protective of who you are and what your values are, and you want to save all animals and you definitely want to save the cows because the prejudice is really agonising. But (then) lynching for cows takes place and you look like an idiot," added Kangana.
