Kangana Ranaut also took to her Instagram story to criticize Vir’s diatribe on India and demanded that he be punished severely.

Kangana Ranaut is the latest star to criticize comedian Vir Das for his YouTube video titled “I come from two Indias,” which was part of his recent performance at the John F Kennedy Center in Washington. In a six-minute video posted on his YouTube account on Monday, Vir could be heard juxtaposing India’s dark sides by addressing subjects such as the country’s fight against COVID-19, gang rapes, farmers’ protests, and more. Vir has been criticized by a number of social media users, including politicians, for disparaging his motherland in a foreign country.

Kangana Ranaut also took to her Instagram story to criticize Vir’s diatribe on India and demanded that he be punished severely. Kangana wrote on her Instagram story, “When you generalize all Indian men as gang-rapists it gives rise and encouragement to racism and bullying against Indians all over the world…after Bengal Famine Churchill famously said, ‘These Indians breed like rabbits they are bound to die like this…’ he blamed Indians’ sex drive/fertility for the death of millions because of hunger… Such creative work targeting an entire race is soft terrorism… strict actions must be taken against such criminals @virdas.”

Kangana’s reaction came just hours after the comedian published a statement on Twitter claiming that his objective was not to offend the country. “The video is a satire about the duality of two very separate India`s that do different things. Like any nation has light and dark, good and evil within it. None of this is a secret. The video appeals to us to never forget that we are great. To never stop focusing on what makes us great,” he said. Aditya Jha, a Delhi resident, has filed a police complaint against Vir at Tilak Marg Police Station in the national capital for allegedly using derogatory language against India during his performance at the John F Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington, which the actor-comedian had uploaded on YouTube on Monday, according to Delhi Police. More information is awaited.
