Why Anurag Basu told Kangana Ranaut 'You shut up'; Don't define yourself on the basis of your sexuality, Kangana tells people
Kangana Ranaut posts about Anurag Basu and Gender: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut was quite active on social media on Saturday. During this, he sometimes shared posts on Twitter and sometimes on Instagram Story. On one hand, Kangana spoke on Twitter not to judge people on the basis of their gender and on the other hand, being nostalgic, she recalled on Instagram how Anurag Basu had trained her for Life in a Metro.
You will remember the film Life in a Metro (2007) directed by Anurag Basu. On Saturday, Kangana Ranaut shared a picture related to the set from the same film on Instagram Story. Sharing a picture from 17 years old here, Kangana wrote, "Thanks to this mad genius @anuragbasuofficial (Anurag Basu) who launched me 17 years ago on 28th April 2006. Here's him and me in a Metro set (2006) Here is a picture, this is how he is training me....'Tu chup kar (You shut up)' is his favourite catchphrase during training... haha I love you Anu...this is all Thank you for it.
Kangana further wrote, 'I was told that the shelf life of actresses is only 4-5 years... Well, I completed 17 years yesterday..' Kangana Ranaut, Shilpa Shetty, and Dharmendra in the film Life in a Metro Apart from Nafisa Ali, Shilpa Shetty, Kay Kay Menon, Shiney Ahuja, Irrfan Khan, Konkona Sen, Sharman Joshi played lead roles.
On the other hand, while sharing the post on Twitter, Kangana asked not to judge people on the basis of their gender. This issue is related to the petition to give legal approval to 'same gender marriages' going on in the Supreme Court these days. Kangana said in her Twitter post that people should not make their gender their identity. 'You are capable of becoming whoever you want to be in this world, that strength will always be with you.' Kangana further said, 'A person should not be judged on the basis of his gender and sexuality. Those who do this do not go far in life.'
In the same post, the Manikarnika actress has also spoken against people who identify with their gender (sex) and "flaunt" it everywhere. 'I just don't like being referred to as a woman because he never understood her as such,' she said. His statement came at a time when the Supreme Court is hearing a petition to legalize same-sex marriage.
In a long post, Kangana said, 'Whether you are a man/woman/anything else, your gender is of no importance to anyone except you, please understand this. In the modern world we don't even use words like actresses or women directors, we call them actors and directors. What you do in the world defines you, not what you do in bed. Whatever your sexual preferences, they should stay in your bed. Don't hoist them everywhere by making them your identity card or medal. In his post, he further wrote, 'The most important thing is not to carry a knife to slit the throat of everyone who does not agree with your gender. I am saying again that your gender is not your identity, don't make it like this.
On the work front, Kangana Ranaut will be seen in her upcoming film The Avatar: Sita. Apart from this, she will be seen in the period drama film Emergency, which is her first film as a solo director. Apart from Kangana, Anupam Kher, Mahima Chowdhary, Vishak Nair and Shreyas Talpade are in lead roles in this film.
