Without getting into the politics of it, just the sheer volume of venom in Kangana Ranauts responses to Rihannas tweet supporting the farmers protest took my breath away.What about yours?
Kangana not only spoke in her tweets about Rihanas body parts(and how much she likes to shake them) she also TRIED to insult our own singers by comparing them to Rihanna. I say ,tried ,because I dont think Sunidhi Chauhan(who by the way, is a very fine singer) or Neha Kakkar would feel insulted when compared with Rihanna. Its like Kangana being compared with Jennifer Lopez. Where is the insult in that? And where is the rationale in ripping Rihanna for her opnion?
Everyone has an opinion. Rihanna too. If she feels one way about the farmers agitation, why must the crack in her bum be brought up? What is the connection between the two(the protest and the crack?). On a more serious note , why are we becoming a nation so intolerant of dissent? The last we checked we were a democracy where everyone has a right to express him or herself.
Sadly for Ms Ranaut, Rihanna has not reacted to the abuse. She either doesnt know who Ms Ranaut is, or doesnt care. Or maybe shes been informed of Ms Ranauts reputation of jumping into controversies, head first. Whatever the reason for her silence it is pretty clear that Rihanna made her point and moved on,probably to her next song. Or maybe shes shopping for handbags at the nearest Gucci outlet . Least bothered with Ms Ranauts.errr wise-cracks.
As for Diljit Dosanjhs song in honour of Rihanna, whats with the firangi fixation,my friend? Back home there are other actresses who also supporting the farmers protest. Why not sing in their praise? They will follow your Punjabi better than Rihanna.And they will even do a music video with you. Pukka promise.
Sunidhi and Neha Kakkar, I hear, are big Rihanna fans. I am not sure they are Ms Ranauts fans.With 250 million records sales worldwide Ruhanna is easily the most successful solo musical artiste of our times. No, she wont respond to criticism , no matter how aggressive, from India.She doesnt care what we think of her. For her the tweet on the farmers was probably her morning munch. The see-I-know-whats-happening-in-the-world moment before she rushed to next fun activity(doing her nails to sharpen them for the fight with Mr Ranaut? Nah!). Neither will she do a duet with Dosanjh.A pity he didnt sing in praise of ladies closer home.They would have at least appreciated his efforts.But we dont care what our own people think of us. We care about what the world thinks of us. Satyajit Rays Pather Panchali had got acclaim in the West before it was appreciated at home. Maybe after Rihanna, our farmers will finally be heard.Think of it. The farmers own Pather Panchali moment.
