I will never stand with Tukde-Tukde Gang, says Kangana Ranaut after Deepika’s unexpected visit to JNU

After Deepika Padukone’s JNU visit, many have boycotted her film ‘Chhapaak’, while many have supported her decisions. Now, Bollywood queen Kangana Ranaut slammed Deepika Padukone for standing with ‘Tukde-Tukde’ Gang’. Criticizing  Deepika’s decision, Kangana said that she would never support ‘Tukde-Tukde’ Gang’ as she does not like Tukde-Tukde Gang. According to Kangana, Tukde-Tukde Gang wants to divide the nation. They get happy when our soldiers are martyred and celebrate it. They remain quiet when protesters pelt stones at our soldiers in Kashmir. They cry when a terrorist is killed or hanged.

These protesting students of JNU university are concerned about Nirbhaya’s convicts. They raise anti-national slogans such as ‘bharat tere tukde honge, inshallah’, ‘hum kya chahte aazadi’. They call themselves buddhijeevi (intellectuals), they call themselves liberals. She said, she is not interested in supporting these people. 

Deepika’s unexpected appearance in JNU invited many to criticize her idea to stand with protesting students who held many protests across the city since the citizenship amendment bill was passed by the parliament.

Expressing her views on the matter on a news channel, Kangana reportedly said, “Deepika knows what she should have done. She’s been within her democratic line. But if you ask me, if I was given the choice, I’d never go and stand behind the Tukde-Tukde Gang, because I don’t like them. I don’t think they are right.” 

Deepika had no idea that her decision would put herself into trouble. After supporting protesting students in JNU, Deepika has suffered a huge loss as her film Chhapaak could not do well on theater. Bollywood’s most beautiful actress said that If I had been given a choice, I would have never supported the ‘Tukde-Tukde’ Gang’ who I think are not right.

Kangana’s film Panga is going to hit the cinema after 4 days and she is now in the national capital along with her team members for the promotion of her film.

’I think women should support women and I don’t want to comment on what she did and what she should have done. She knows what she should have done and she is prepared to bear the consequences, so why should we be bothered about that? Also, she is within her democratic rights. She has not stepped out of the line. She has not done anything that will have any severe consequences. If you ask me and if I am given a choice, I would never go to a place and stand behind the Tukde-Tukde Gang”. Bollywood queen added.

After the video went viral on TikTok in which Deepika asked an influencer to recreate her Chhapaak ‘look’, Kangana said that her sister Rangoli Chandel, also an acid attack survivor, got offended by it and said that Deepika should apologise for it.
