Actress defends her ‘Pakistan destruction’ statement

No Comments

Actress Kangana Ranaut says her “Pakistan destruction” comment came naturally to her after hearing about the Pulwama terror attack.

In her address at the India Today Conclave here on Saturday, the “Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi” actress defended her controversial remark against Pakistan, stating it was an “instinctive sentiment” .

On February 14, a terror attack took place in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama in which at least 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers were killed. Pakistan based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) claimed the responsibility of it.

Following the attack, Kangana reportedly said “Pakistan ban is not the solution, but Pakistan destruction is”.

When asked about her statement at the conclave, she said: “I think it was very sort of instinctive sentiment that we all felt that time when we were faced with that type of shocking incident. It was possibly the most brutal and most inhuman in centuries, it will always be a deep scar, wound in our conscience.”

According to Kangana, she got “deeply moved by brutality of the action”.

“You cannot be such a victim of your own mind that at that moment also, you are letting your thought process take over and be like, ‘What is the best response to this ? Let me think about it’.

“It’s okay to let your instinct take over,” she added.

Kangana mentioned that “she even felt to go to the border and sort of snatch somebody’s gun and do the deed.”

She also met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the conclave.

How much money will Lakshmi Parvathi get from Lakshmi’s NTR?

No Comments

The most awaited film for the real fans of NTR and the people who doesn’t like N Chandrababu Naidu is undoubtedly Ram Gopal Varma’s Lakshmi’s NTR.

The anti fans of TDP are already waiting for the movie saying that the Lakshmi’s NTR is a third part of Balakrishna’s NTR Biopic.

According to the sources the makers of Lakshmi’s NTR has paid a royalty of Rs 1.5 Cr for Lakshmi Parvathi for making a movie based on her life.

When the biopics are made it is a tradition that the makers pay some amount to the concern persons. In a similar way Sanjay Dutt was also paid by the makers of the Sanju movie.

Being a controversial movie, the Telugu Desam leaders are already targeting Lakshmi Parvathi and making several allegations against her. This news of earning royalty will help the Telugu Desam leaders to criticise her more.

But, the YSRC leaders are already taking on AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu for his words in Kurnool a couple of days ago.

Addressing a meeting Chandrababu Naidu said that Modi should see the Mahanayakudu movie to know what he is.

“Modi should also watch Lakshmi’s NTR to know what Mr Naidu is. Taking the help of his brother-in-law Balakrishna, Naidu has portrayed himself in Mahanayakudu film as a saviour of NTR. But in reality everyone knew that he backstabbed NTR,” said a leader from YSRC.

No Comments

YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said the 3,000 km-long Praja Sankalpa Padayatra that he has undertaken will give people a “sense of hope”.

Reddy, speaking at the India Today Conclave 2019, said he wants to become the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh as he wants to “stay alive after death”.

“I have a dream to become CM of Andhra Pradesh and the very purpose for that is I want to stay alive after death. For that I need to do so much good to the people. Padaytra transforms you into something different that gives you hope that you want to do something,” Reddy said.

Highlights

Speaking about his position in politics at a national level, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said he does not see himself in politics at a national level and that both the national parties, Congress and BJP, have done nothing for Andhra Pradesh.

On special status for Andhra Pradesh, YSR Congress party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said their only demand was a special category status for the state. “We are sick and tired of trusting people. They promise but not deliver. We are keeping our options open,” he said.

Speaking about 15 cases filed against him, including a disproportionate assets case, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that there were no cases against him when his father was alive.

On joining the Congress, Jagan Mohan Reddy said the party has evaporated from Andhra Pradesh. We don’t need them. It is the Congress that needs us,” Reddy said on the second day of the India Today Conclave.

“Our interest is clear. We are not against Rahul Gandhi or any other leader, but we have lost trust. We now want to keep our options open, he added.

On airstrikes by the Indian Air Force in Balakot, Jagan Reddy said Prime Minister Narendra Modi did score a point. “The Prime Minister exhibited a strong political will which made a difference,” Reddy said.

Jagan Mohan Reddy said as a representative of Andhra Pradesh, both Narendra Modi and Rahul Gandhi stabbed him. “The Prime Minister deprived Andhra Pradesh of the special category status. He didn’t honour his commitment. And Congress shouldn’t have bifurcated the state,” Jagan Reddy said.
