Kangana Ranaut is one actor who does not believe in being diplomatic, even if it comes at the cost of alienating the influencers of Bollywood. She has been vocal about sexism and nepotism in the industry, and has minced no words in criticising the fragility of male egos. At a recently held event, Kangana talked about the “deep-rooted patriarchy” in Bollywood, reported Mid-Day.
The Queen actor first established herself as a feminist, not a “man-hater”. She then went on to say, “Lineage has been restricted within the males of the industry. There is a deep-rooted patriarchy.”

Kangana cites an example to prove her point. “Certain things are expected of men, but sneered upon when women do it. Consider their sexual lives for instance. Having sex is fun for a man, but for a woman, it’s almost criminal. Such is the general perception of the glamour world. Men brag about their Casanova sons, but when it comes to their daughters, she can’t be wearing a bikini. [It is okay if] 15 bikini-clad women are hovering around him and his son, but the daughter has to comply with feudal ideas,” she said.
On the work front, her film Simran hit the theatres on Friday. While critics praised Kangana’s performance, the film itself got mixed reviews. Simran has collected Rs 10.65 crore so far.
