After taking a subtle jab at Deepika Padukone’s melancholy years earlier, Kangana Ranaut lavished accolades on her at the Oscars. Deepika, according to her, “stands tall as a testimonial to the fact that Indian women are the best,” she remarked.
Kangana Ranaut, an actor, praised Deepika Padukone for introducing the Oscars rendition of the enduring song Naatu Naatu from SS Rajamouli’s RRR. On Monday morning, Kangana posted a tweet from Deepika in which she described the dance.
A journalist questioned Kangana about her thoughts on Deepika being called out for her “hemlines and necklines” during the Gehraiyaan promotions last year. “Look, I’m here to defend those who can’t defend themselves,” Kangana retorted. Alright? She can defend herself. She has the privilege, the platform and I can’t promote her film here. Sit down.”
Said she, “Millions of people have watched it on Tik Tok and YouTube. The first song from an Indian production to be nominated for an Oscar, it has crowds dancing in movie theatres all over the world. Have you met Naatu? Since you’re about to if you don’t. This is Naatu Naatu from the movie RRR.”
