Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has once again expressed her support for the idea of renaming India as “Bharat.” In a recent social media post, she reminded her followers that she had initially shared this perspective two years ago and firmly believes in it. Ranaut argued that the term “Indian” was imposed on the country during the British colonial era and lacked a meaningful historical or cultural connection, whereas “Bharat” held profound significance.
Sharing a fan’s post praising her stance, Kangana humorously responded, “Congratulations to everyone!! Freed from a slave name … Jai Bharat.” She further delved into the historical evolution of the name, highlighting that the term “Indian” once meant “slave” in old English and emphasized that the name “Bharat” is rich in meaning and aligns better with the country’s heritage.
On the film front, Kangana Ranaut is awaiting the release of her second directorial venture, “Emergency,” based on the 1975 Indian Emergency. The film features an ensemble cast, including Anupam Kher, Shreyas Talpade, Mahima Chaudhry, and Milind Soman. While the release date was initially set for October 20, it has been postponed to avoid a clash with another film, and Kangana plans to announce the new release date soon along with the trailer.
