Kangana Ranaut and Twinkle Khanna

Actress Kangana Ranaut shared an old video of Twinkle Khanna speaking at a public event about equality and heavily criticised her for her views. She took to her Instagram stories on Wednesday and shared the old clip featuring author Twinkle Khanna. The actress-turned-author who is known for her witty remarks was seen sharing her thoughts on men and turning feminist at an event in December. Khanna was talking about gender equality in society. She also compared men to plastic bags which did not sit well with the 'Fashion' actress. 

An unimpressed Kangana Ranaut did not mince her words while criticizing Twinkle and called her a privileged brat. Questioning the former actor's idea of feminism, she said, “What are these privileged brats who call their men polythene bags, are they trying to be cool? Nepo kids born with silver spoon, given film careers on golden platters, couldn't do justice to that for sure, least they could do find some joy and fulfilment in selflessness of motherhood that also seems like a curse in their case what exactly do they want to be? Vegetables? Is that feminism?”

What did Twinkle Khanna say? 

During an event in December Twinkle was asked about how she realised she was a feminist. She said that her journey to realisation was mapped backward as she was raised by her mother Dimple Kapadia who taught her how women don't need men. 

We never spoke about feminism or equality or anything. But it was very clear that there was absolutely no need for a man. It would be very nice to have a man, as you would have a nice handbag. But even if you had a plastic bag, it would do. So I grew up with that notion and for a long time I felt that there wasn't much use for them."

She continued and stated that men are weaker than women by nature. "They lose their hair, start wrapping the four strands, round and round, on their heads. Luckily for most women, they die 10–15 years before us. You have to feel a little sorry for them also. So, I had to walk backwards that perhaps we (women) are not superior, but we are sort of equals. That has been my journey to feminism", she added.

Meanwhile, Twinkle Khanna, daughter of superstar Rajesh Khanna and actress Dimple Kapadia initially chose the path set by her talented parents. However, she soon realised acting was not her cup of tea and walked out of the movies in 2001 after the release of 'Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega'. In 2015, she made her debut as an author and in 2023 she launched her book, 'Welcome To Paradise'.
