Kangana says normalising crimes in movies is not acceptable

The newly released Bollywood film ‘Animal’ features prominent stars such as Ranbir Kapoor, Bobby Deol, and Anil Kapoor in significant roles. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, the movie has faced criticism for allegedly promoting toxic masculinity. Meanwhile, an old interview video of Kangana Ranaut is going viral on social media.

In the video, which is from an episode of Aamir Khan’s popular TV show Satyamev Jayate, Kangana talks to Aamir about the consequences of showing problematic characters in films. Kangana, who is known for speaking her heart and mind openly, shared her views about some true facts related to Bollywood while talking to Aamir Khan and Deepika Padukone.

In the viral video, she says, “I am not saying that there should not be dark cinema or that reality should not be shown. But if it is shown then it is also important to show its consequences. What effect does it have on the girl and her future?” And what effect it has on the boy as well. So, it can’t have a happy ending.”

She further said, ‘When boys grow up, they start ragging others. They harass not just girls but everyone. Even their parents. They feel that the characters in such films justify their behavior and convince themselves that they are right because the films are being made about them. ‘

Kangana’s insights shed light on the responsibility of filmmakers to depict consequences in dark cinema, reflecting societal impacts. Moviegoers express concerns about films like ‘Animal.’
