Kangana Ranaut is one of the actresses that has been very vocal about the issues that we as a society face. She recently spoke about the recent trend of Bollywood coming to support of the #BlackLivesMatter #BlackoutTuesday. For those unaware, this hashtag has been in support of George Floyd who was killed in police brutality in the US. 

Talking about the same in an interview, Kangana Ranaut says, "I think it has become fancy somehow to be a part of something which is relevant to the West. But Asian celebrities and actors are very impactful in this part of the country. I don’t know why they’re participating in the socio-political reform of America and a few weeks ago when two sages were killed openly in by a bloodthirsty  mob and were handed over by cops themselves, there was not a word from anyone, because I think that would probably resonate with the majoritarian sentiment.”

She went out to add how most Bollywood celebrities don't shy away to endorse fairness products, deals of which run into crores and later go on to support causes like Black Lives Matter. Kangana also sheds light on out how racism is deep-rooted in our fabric and that none of these celebs has ever acknowledged that gap. 

Kangana says, "The Indian celebrities they’ve been endorsing all kind of fairness products and today shamelessly they stand and say black lives matter, I mean how dare they? Our industry even shies away from casting darker actors for characters that are supposed to be fair-skinned. Why is no one asking them about these million-dollar deals that they’ve been doing with all kind of fairness products and how come suddenly all black lives matter because racism is deep-rooted and when you have commercialised such events that is the lowest humanity can hit."
