"I have a responsibility towards my nation and its citizens."
Kangana Ranaut took a jibe at Aamir Khan, saying that he has ‘double standards’ after he travelled to Turkey and had a photo with the Turkish first lady.
Aamir is currently filming his upcoming movie Laal Singh Chaddha in Turkey and had met with Emine Erdogan.
She stated: “Aamir has been complaining about intolerance in India, and yet he goes to Turkey, which is right now one of the most intolerant countries in the world.
“It sets a kind of an example where he comes across as someone who has double-standards.
“I, as a fan and as a well-wisher, want him to come clean on this matter.”
Kangana went on to question why Aamir had not said anything about Sushant Singh Rajput’s case. The two actors worked together on PK.
She said that she and Aamir are friends but that does not mean that she is not allowed to criticise him.
Kangana told Pinkvilla: “Aamir and I share a great bond, and I have huge respect for him. But I have stopped responding according to my personal equations with people.
“As a human being, I have a responsibility towards my nation and its citizens.
“Just because he is my friend, and I have huge admiration for him does not mean I will ignore something that bothers me about him.”
Kangana previously demanded to know why Aamir, along with other Bollywood celebrities had not commented on Sushant’s death.
“If you see, Aamir Khan worked with Sushant in PK. But if he does not say anything, even Anushka will not say anything, Raju Hirani will not say anything, Aditya Chopra and his wife Rani Mukerji will also not say anything. This racket works like a gang.”
In the past, Kangana’s sister Rangoli Chandel said that the actress’ relationship with Aamir soured because of their differing political views.
Rangoli said: “She is a legend, has inspired an entire generation and not to forget at one point she followed Aamir sir as her role model, he too mentored her, sadly things are very different now but it’s OK it’s life, a friendship that can be affected by political views isn’t strong enough anyway.”
As well as Aamir, Kangana also commented on Karan Johar and her ongoing feud with him.
“There is so much to Karan Johar that every day I wonder how much negativity is he carrying in himself and yet so unapologetic about it.”
“He has been conferred with Padma Shri, which is a big shame since now a person has died.
“We have these videos where he is asking me to get lost from the industry, defending Pakistan during the Uri crime, he should go with those Pakistani artists rather than bringing International shame to India.
“Now he [Karan Johar] has distorted the image of the entire Indian Air Force. How long will he get away with these?
“Because I have faced it in person, people think I have something personal against him.
“Well! I have only one thing against him: his prejudices. He needs to let go of those. Trust me; I will be more than willing to come forward and show my respect and admiration to him because he is definitely a good showman.
“I want him to be considerate of outsiders and others as well.”
