Chandigarh, July 18
Actress Kangana Ranaut will return her Padma Shri award if she is unable to justify the claims she made concerning the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Sushant was discovered hanging on June 14 at his Mumbai residence.
The actress posted a number of clips on social media accusing a number of B-town members for propagating nepotism.
She talked concerning the “pressure and rejections” he confronted from B-town and the media. She additionally questioned whether or not Sushant Singh Rajput’s dying was a “suicide or a planned murder”.
Now, the actress stated that’s she couldn’t show that the claims she has made, she’ll return the honour bestowed upon her by the Indian authorities.
“They (Mumbai Police) summoned me, and I asked them too, that I’m in Manali, that you can send somebody to take my statement, but I have not received anything after that. I am telling you, if I have said anything, which I can’t testify, which I can’t prove, and which is not in public domain, I will return my Padma Shri,” Kangana informed Republic TV.
“I don’t deserve it. I am not that person who will go on record (to make such statements), and everything that I have said is in public domain,” she added.
Kangana continued, “Tomorrow, needy outsiders like Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker will get up and say that they love this industry. I am only saying if you love this industry and if you love Karan Johar, then why are you not getting work like Alia or Ananya? Their whole existence is proof of nepotism. There will be articles that will make me look like a mad person after this, I know.”
Earlier this month, Kangana’s workforce had denied that the actress was known as in by the Mumbai Police. Her workforce had tweeted on July 2, “Ms #KanganaRanaut hasn’t received any such request from @MumbaiPolice yet, but as and when she does, she is more than willing to co-operate.”
