NEW DELHI: Outspoken Kangana Ranaut has joined the list of actors voicing their opinion on the nationwide protest on the Citizenship Amendment Act. However, her comment invited several criticisms and the Queen actress gets slammed by people including Delhi's Deputy CM Manish Sisodia. 

Speaking about the protests during the trailer launch of her upcoming movie Panga, Kangana stood against violence in the name of democracy. She said, "It’s not correct for the people to instigate violence in the name of democracy. We are still hung on to the pre-Independence era. During that time, going on strikes against the people, who had captured us, not paying taxes, all of this was really cool. But today, because of democracy, your leaders have come from within you, not from Italy or Japan."

The actress further slammed people for destroying public properties and said, "In our population, only three to four percent people pay taxes. Rest of them are actually dependent on them. So, who gives you the right to burn buses, trains, create ruckus in the country. One bus costs a lot. It’s not a small amount. And the condition of this country is such that there are so many, who are dying of malnutrition."

Her comment seems to not go down well with the netizens. People mocked the Panga actress for her "lack of knowledge" that only three to four percent pay taxes. Delhi's Deputy CM Manish Sisodia also tweeted his reply to the actor where he said that all the citizens pay indirect taxes. He wrote in a series of tweets saying, "Even daily laborers pay indirect taxes when he buys something cheap like salt. They even pay taxes when they went to watch movies and are responsible for the income of actors."

The others also voiced their opinions on Kangana's views on the current situation of the country. Read their tweets below:

On the work front, Kangana will be next seen in Panga whose trailer was released recently and received much appreciation. The movie will be releasing on 24th January 2020.
