Kangana Ranaut‘s Twitter account has been suspended after she posted texts that violate the guidelines of the micro-blogging site. In a series of tweets, the actress had made objectionable comments on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. The actress was criticising Mamata Banerjee for the violence that took place in the state following the announcement of Assembly Elections results on Sunday (May 2).
Kangana demanded president rule in West Bengal after Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) won the recent assembly elections in the state. She also compared the politician to an unleashed monster. She said that no violence was reported from Assam and Puducherry where BJP won, but ‘hundreds of murders and #Bengalisburning’ after TMC won in Bengal.
The actress also commented on Indira Gandhi in one of her tweets.
Kangana Ranaut born on 23 March 1987 is an Indian actress and filmmaker who works in Hindi films. The recipient of several awards, including four National Film Awards and four Filmfare Awards, she has featured six times in Forbes India‘s Celebrity 100 list. In 2020, the Government of India honoured her with the Padma Shri, the country’s fourth-highest civilian award.
Born in Bhambla, a small town in Himachal Pradesh, Ranaut initially aspired to become a doctor at the insistence of her parents. Determined to build her own career, she relocated to Delhi at the age of sixteen and took up modelling for a brief period of time. After being trained under theatre director Arvind Gaur, Ranaut made her feature film debut in the 2006 thriller Gangster, for which she was awarded the Filmfare Award for Best Female Debut. She received praise for portraying emotionally intense characters in the dramas Woh Lamhe (2006), Life in a… Metro (2007) and Fashion (2008). For the last of these, she won the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress.
Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) won 213 seats in the just concluded West Bengal Assembly Elections. The BJP garnered 77 seats in the 294-seat state assembly.
