I am a feminist, but I don’t support Kangana.

Dear Kangana,
The audience stood with you when spoke of your abusive relationship with Adhyayan Suman and Aditya Pancholi. They marveled at your courage when you lashed out at the “mafias” of the industry, talked about nepotism. And how biased the industry is against outsiders. They also supported you when you broke the news of harassment and abuse you endured at the hands of a very well-loved and popular star, Hrithik Roshan. But now, it’s time for you to stop.

You went on record and said that Hrithik broke up with you in 2014 and then came back to apologize after your movie “Queen” became a blockbuster hit. And now, just when “Simran” is around the corner, you have spoken about your affair with Hrithik again. I, personally, have always cheered for your bold interviews, sassy statements, and “no nonsense” attitude. But you have taken it too far this time. I am a feminist and here’s why I don’t support you.

I believe that you have truly struggled to make yourself all that you are today. And also that love hasn’t really been kind to you. But irrespective of what has happened in the past, using all those unfortunate incidents as a mere PR campaign is in no way appreciable. You have disappointed not only your audience, but also women in general. By trying to play the victim cards to get brownie points, or in your case- a better turnout for your movie. We all know that you are better than this, Kangana. Your work and vigour is what has made grounds for you in Bollywood. We all thought you would use it to prove your mettle again, but sadly you didn’t. Rather, you retorted to extremely poor means of publicity- repeating the details of your love life over and over again, everywhere.

A very well-timed clapback is precisely what you have done, and it does not invoke sympathy, pity or support in any way. Just plain disgust for a star using outrageous PR strategies to promote her film. By doing this, you are disrespecting women who actually are facing emotional and physical abuse, but still fight it with dignity. As Sona Mohapatra very rightly said when she wrote to you, “Your well thought out & superbly worded open letters of the past, fearless interviews addressing larger issues, taking a stand, taking legal recourse are welcome. The current ‘circus’, not.”
We hope that you understand that is farce is not taking you anywhere.
Sincerely,
A disappointed fan and feminist.
