Javed Akhtar finally reacted on Kangana Ranaut’s ‘bheek (handout)’ remark as she recently spoke about the freedom struggle of India. To this, on Thursday, Javed Akhtar stated, “It is totally understand(able). Why would all those who had nothing to do with freedom movement feel bad if some(one) calls our freedom just a ‘bheek’.”

However, after this statement Kangana was slammed by several personalities from Bollywood fraternity to political leaders. Moreover, Police complaints have also been registered against her.
As per Times Now Summit, Miss Ranaut earlier stated, “…blood will flow. But it should not be Hindustani blood. They knew it and they paid a price. Of course, it was not freedom but bheekh (alms) and we attained real freedom in 2014.”
On her comment, BJP MP Varun Gandhi had responded by sharing a video clip of Kangana’s remarks on Twitter. He also wrote, “It is an anti-national act and must be called out as such. To not do so would be a betrayal of all those who shed blood so that today we may stand tall and free as a nation.”
Meanwhile, Kangana replied to this on her IG Stories, “Even though I clearly mentioned 1857 revolution first freedom fight which was curbed… which lead to more atrocities and cruelties from the British and almost a century later freedom was given to us in Gandhi’s begging bowl… Ja aur roo ab (go cry now).”
On the other hand, actor Vikram Gokhale aided the actress saying, “Many people were mute spectators when our freedom fighters were hanged. These included many senior leaders who did not save the freedom fighters.”
On the professional front, Kangana has various projects to start such as Dhaakad, Tejas, Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda, Emergency, Aparajita Ayodhya and The Incarnation: Sita.
