Actor Kangana Ranaut has given her reaction to the Vir Das’ viral video titled ‘I come from two Indias’, in which he said Indian men worship women during the day and gang-rape them at night. Vir Das’ is an actor-comedian.
Kangana slammed the video and on her instagram story she wrote, “When you generalise 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.”
Vir uploaded a video on Monday, and titled, ‘I come from two India’, which was a part of his performance at the John F Kennedy Centre in Washington DC. The video was of 6 minutes and he talked about the issues in the country, from Covid-19 battle to rape incidents. Clips from Vir Das’ video was uploaded on social media where he said, “I come from an India where we worship women during the day and gang-rape them during the night.” People trolled him for the same and demanded the action against him.
On Tuesday, Vir gave his clarification via twitter post. He wrote, “The video is a satire about the duality of two very separate Indias 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 for us to never forget that we are great. To never stop focusing on what makes us great.”
